Materials: Slatted bed frame, nails, hammer, thumbtacks, piece of old spandex tank top
Description: Convert part of an IKEA wooden bed frame into a behind-the-door jewelry organizer.
Simply hammer one nail on each slat in 2 or 3 parallel rows. Thumbtack a piece of stretchy cloth across the bottom (I cut an old tank top, but a screen would work well too). Hang necklaces on the nails, and jab earrings into the cloth. Add a row of nails across the bottom of the slats for storing extra-long necklaces. Mount on back of door.
Bonus: Find your bed frame base in a discard pile in the basement of your new apartment and this hack is completely free!
