Industrial Pipe Jewelry Organizer

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Cooking Light and Real Simple, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #FreshandFab http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Last week was the first of Spring. Here is California it’s felt like Spring for quite some time but hopefully the rest of country is finally starting to thaw out. Since Spring is officially here that means I’m officially starting the annual purge and organization. Last week I picked up one of my favorite magazines, Real Simple and got super excited about the household cleaning guide article! DIY Industrial Pipe Jewelry Organizer

After reading through all the awesome cleaning tips I was inspired to get organized! I used their cleaning tip to cleaning jewelry and realized how much of a MESS my jewelry organization has been! So when in Rome, or when in Spring, ORGANIZE.

 During nap I sat down with my favorite snack and indulge in some “mama” time. Which included reading these two magazines and drinking a diet coke. Hello relaxation. Do you ever do that?

So much awesome inspiration to be found. Delcious recipes perfect for Spring, and tons of cleaning tips also perfect for that Spring deep clean!

About that jewelry organizer! I am loving the look of using industrial pipes in your home. I’ve seen them used as book shelves and tables, and I thought it would be really cute to try it out as a jewelry organizer.

It turned out lovely and it’s probably one of my favorite projects ever!

Here’s the supplies you’ll need. Please don’t feel like you have to know anything about piping before you start a project like this because I sure don’t. I just went into Lowes and stared at the pipe section for a good 20 minutes and laid every thing out on the floor of the plumbing aisle until I got the look I was going for!

A block of wood. I actually used wood I already had and since I didn’t have one single piece large enough I ended up putting two small pieces together making about a 5 inch square.

1 – Black Steel Pipe 1/2in x 10in

2 – Black Steel Pipe  1/2in x 6in

1 – Black Steel Pipe 1/2in x 5in

2 – 1/2in Black Tees

3 – 1/2in black

1 – 1/2in black flange ( I couldn’t find a black steel flange so I got the galvanized metal and sprayed it flat black)

Here’s a little secret. I messed up and you can see that here. When I bought my flange I accidentally purchased a 3/4in flange instead of a 1/2in. I had already spray painted it so I couldn’t exchange it for a 1/2 in. The flange was the most expensive part so I ended up just buying a bushing which connects two pipes that aren’t the same size. It has two size threads. So if you were to get the proper size flange you wouldn’t have that top piece that you see in this picture.

Nevertheless, it worked out. To start building the jewelry organizer I first attached the flange to the wood block with four screws. I ended up also spray painting the screws to match the black flange.

Then I connected the largest piece of pipe to the bottom of the tee. This gave me a giant tee. Then I connect the other tee connector to the bottom of the longest pipe. I connected the 5in pipe to it to create the arm for the bracelets. Then I connected the last pipe to end of the tee. Then I connected the whole thing to the flange piece. Lastly I screwed on all the caps to give it a finished look.

My explanation is probably way more confusing than the actual assembly. Super easy. The last step was to wipe the whole thing down because the pipes were filthy! My hands were black with an oily film from the pipes so before I added my jewelry I made sure to clean the whole thing really well.

 My favorite part is that you can totally customize this all you want. If you want an extra arm for bracelets you can add that. Or if you want it be smaller or larger – it’s totally up to you!

It really is absolutely perfect as a jewelry organizer! I can see all of necklaces and bracelets really clearly.

If you are ready to get down and dirty with spring cleaning and organization you have to pick up the April issues of Real Simple and Cooking Light! What’s perfect is that Target is offering a $5 gift card when you purchase BOTH Real Simple and Cooking Light! It’s like getting two for one! AWESOME!
