Display your statement jewelry in this easy to make farmhouse style cabinet.

It's made of wood - so you can stain it any color of your choice.  This cabinet is stained "Classic Gray" by Minwax Wood Stain.

  

The cabinet hinges open to reveal rustic nails used as jewelry hooks.

Beadboard on the back adds to the charm - but you can also use scrap wood or even leave the back off (hello shiplap wall!)

We love that the hardware cloth door is perfect for hooking earrings too.

This is a gorgeous piece, only made more beautiful by your jewelry!

Instructions

Step 1

Okay - just build the box bottom as shown here. If you don't have a Kreg Jig, you can certainly countersink or even nail and glue.

TIP: If you wish to attach top with pocket holes, drill two 3/4" PHs facing upward on the inside of the sides for attaching the top in later steps.

Step 2

Then add the back supports. I actually adjusted my placement for the length of my necklaces. Remember, you can loop necklaces a couple times around a nail to shorten.

TIP: You'll hang the cabinet through a screw through these back supports.

Step 3

Now add the top.

Step 4

And then the back. Again, back is optional.

Step 5

Step 6

And a cheat sheet ...

Step 7

May I suggest cutting blocks 2 3/4" long and placing inside the project?

Step 8

Then when you go to put the hinges on, just rest the door on the blocks!

Step 9

And I just nailed a nail every inch or so for hanging the necklaces.

Step 10

And stapled on hardware cloth with 1/2" staples from the back. Use tin snips to cut the wire - it's much easier than wire cutters. Or try to find spring loaded wire cutters.

Finishing Instructions
Preparation Instructions
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth.

It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
Finish Used
For the finish, I used Minwax Classic Gray stain.

I followed the steps almost to a "T".

For step 5: I glued the ends of the top 1x2 of the door, attached both 1x2 sides and clamped them tight. Once I ensured that it was level, I used a right angle bracket and screwed that in. Then I let the glue dry and off I went. I did this becuase the 1x2 I bought had too much grain and when I screwed the pocket hole screw in, I split the wood.

Another thing is my wife has a lot of home made earrings. I used the screen from a screen door for this door. That means there are a lot more holes to hang even more.

The next time I make this I have a few variations I want to do. I want to turn the 1x2 90 degrees and make them into shelves for shot glasses. then add a glass to the door.

Another tip: ensure you 1/4" backing lays flat before you attach it. If you don't, it won't sit flat on the wall.
