Repurposed Cart to DIY Jewelry Storage

How to make a DIY Jewlery Holder from a repurposed cart @savedbyloves

There are tons of cool ways to make your own jewelry holders using the most random of objects.  I shared a roundup with you not long ago - 50+ DIY Jewelry Display Ideas - with some of my favorite ways to store your bling.  Today I am excited to share my jewelry storage solution using a cool rusty cart given to me by a friend.  I saw it in her barn and lit up, immediately picturing bracelets and earrings dangling from the  naturally aged, patina wire grid.  She was happy to part with it, and I am equally thrilled with my awesome antique display.  This project took a whopping 5 minutes.

I sprayed the cart with the water hose to removed the cobwebs and other debris.  Then I wiped it down with a lint free, soapy, wet cloth.  This was mainly to get rid of loose stuff.  I love the rust, and wasn’t trying to get rid of that!

Krylon Crystal Clear Flat Finish

I spray 3 coats of Krylon Crystal Clear, which I had on hand for sealing polymer clay pieces.  This was to protect my jewelry from the rust on the cart.  I let that dry and it was good to go!

Johnnie….looks way more awesome there than it did in the barn. I will be sure to show my mom and dad. Did I tell you this was the grocery cart they used when we lived in Germany. That thing has traveled!
