gold dipped jewelry trays // 5 days of diy gifts

i think i finally have my jewelry situation under control. no. i'm not talking about buying jewelry, i'm talking about storing, displaying and keeping it out of a giant knot. i started picking up a few small plates and bowls from the home decor section of my favorite stores and they have been life savers in keeping tabs on tiny rings and dainty necklaces. this is why i think they are the perfect gift for any girl in your life. read on for instructions to customizing your own!

glass, wood, or metal dishes, plates, bowls or mini trays (wood is from tj maxx, white is from home goods and the floral is vintage).
painters tape
gold spray paint

tape off the area you don't want gold, spray, unwrap and give!

i think every girl can use a little help in the organization department. make it pretty and it's that much more exciting to receive! i love the idea of using them to plan your outfits and accessories the day before. you can have a few and dedicate one for your daily outfits to save some time in the morning!


  1. awesome idea, thanks!

  2. This is so awesome! I love this idea and can actually tackle this DIY. Currently scouring our home for things to spray paint :)

    P.S. Merry Christmas!

  3. Love this idea! I'm going to make a dish asap! Thanks!

  4. Awesome idea!! Pinned for later, I'll have to keep an eye out for candidates next time I'm thrifting!

  5. This post is a LIFESAVER! I've tried so many ways of organizing and showcasing and on and on and I have never gotten it right. I can't wait to find my little dishes and start this project!

  6. me too. i struggle with drawers and boxes because you can't see anything! i love these trays for the pieces i wear daily/weekly and the other stuff i put in glass jars.

  7. yes. this is the ultimate project for thrifting finds!

  8. ha! hope you found something nobody will miss:) merry christmas to you too katie!
