How to Make a Jewelry & Makeup Holder with Dinnerware

How to Make a Jewelry & Makeup Holder with Dinnerware

A lady always needs a place to keep her jewelry and toiletries neatly organized. Why not create an organizer just for her using dinnerware? The dinnerware can be old or new, mixed or matched! This would be a fabulous gift for someone special!

As a side note – I ended up adding a “stand” to the bottom of the organizer which is just a piece of wood with a hole drilled through the center. The bottom of the hole is also countersunk to allow for the nut to rest inside. I did not take a photo of this step…

Materials:

  • Plate, bowl, and cup
  • Threaded rod for lamps with nuts
  • 1/2″ (hole) washers
  • 1/2″ diamond drill bit & drill
  • Spray primer & paint
  • Drawer pull
  • 8-32 machine screw for the drawer pull

Start by marking the position of the holes to be drilled into the plate, bowl, and cup. I created a video on How to Drill a Hole in a Plate Using a Diamond Bit. Check it out before drilling the holes, it is really easy but there are a few “need-to-know” tips involved! (Forgive the horrible lighting in the video!)

Using the diamond bit, drill the holes then set the dinnerware aside. I added a vinyl decal I cut with my Silhouette Cameo to the plate.

Determine the height of the organizer and cut a length of the rod. I used Rust-Oleum’s Rusty Metal Primer to prime the rod, nuts, and washers, then spray painted them silver.

Thread a nut onto the rod leaving it as close to the bottom as possible. Add a washer, then the plate. Add another washer on top of the plate, then thread another nut on the rod to hold the plate in place.

Thread a third nut onto the rod and add another washer. This will mark the position for the bowl. Adjust it until you are happy with the placement. Add the bowl, another washer, and a fourth nut to secure the bowl in place.

Repeat the process for the cup. I kept adjusting the dinnerware on my organizer until everything was where I wanted it to be.

Insert the machine screw in the bottom of the drawer pull. Make sure the head of the screw will fit through the opening in the rod. For the finishing touch, glue the drawer pull to the top of the rod inside the cup. I used Stik ‘n Seal by Loctite.
