DIY Thrifty Repurposed Jewelry Tray

Pin It

I love thrift store finds that find a new purpose and life.

Jewelry Tray4

I knew when I found this mancala board game tray that it would be great on a dresser to hold jewelry or other necessities.

Remember, I can be too anxious and forget before pictures. So this is the best that I could do, a “half” before picture.


Jewelry Tray Before1

I decided to spray paint it heirloom white.

Then I rubbed an antiquing glaze on.

I thought a few handles would make it look more tray-like. So, I pre-drilled holes for the handles since the end of the board was narrow and I didn’t want it to split. Then to accommodate the screws on the bottom of my board and prevent any surface scratching, I added a felt pad to each corner.

So pretty and so useful. I love having my most used jewelry and lip gloss organized and pretty right on top of my dresser.
