I was in my garage the other day searching for a screwdriver when I just stopped and looked around for a moment. I was a little overwhelmed with all of the stuff that accumulated in there. Yes I have a furniture saving obsession so that doesn’t particularly count. But I’m talking pieces of scrap wood from previous projects done, old trim , a door, an old window, I can go on. These are all things I want to save because you never know when you will need it or I had use that in a DIY project I want to do. Half the time they just sit there collecting dust and taking up valuable garage space. In that moment I vowed to start some of these DIY projects to free up some space. 

Just wanting to get my feet wet with a small project, I figure a DIY Jewelry Holder would be perfect. I grabbed  2 old raw pieces of plywood that were cut in strips. They were the perfect size for jewelry holder. 

In order to prep my board for staining I first sanded it down briefly with 100 grit sandpaper.
I applied the stain wiped off the excess almost immediately. I love the stain color Provincial by Minwax. It’s my current favorite! I let the boards dry overnight so it wouldn’t be tacky to handle while I finished the project.

Once the stain was fully dry I went  on to the fun part, making them look like old barn wood. 

I took some white chalk paint, get my  Chalk Paint Recipe   I had left over from another project and I used the dry brush method, which is basically when you barely tap the brush in the paint. You don’t want the board to be fully painted just lighty in spots.

I let the paint dry then came back with my sandpaper. I gave the boards a quick sanding where I thought it needed it. I gave the boards a coat of polycrylic and left  them to dry.

I had some leftover knobs from a previous dresser project that were prefect for the look i was going for. 

I evenly spaced them out and attached them to the boards.

I actually made 2 , this one went to my sister. 

I also added 4 nail heads for some added hanging space.

I’m quite happy with the end result. This small project was not hard at all and it was pretty fun to complete.  I think It was the spark I needed to get my other DIY projects under way. To be continued on that.
