I’m back with a most recent DIY project we just did! We had a broken wood baby gate sitting in our garage for a while. No, not because we have a baby but because we have a puppy that won’t stop getting into the cat litter box. But this gate we had was a really cheap $5 gate from Walmart that didn’t even last longer than 2 days.

Tyler was cleaning out the garage the other weekend and asked me what I wanted to do with the gate. Immediately a light bulb turned on and I thought of a project! I wanted to rip it apart and spray paint it and hang my earrings on it.

And so that is what we did!

Isn’t it so pretty? I love it! Want to know what happened to the other gate? Tyler spray painted it black and says he wants to use it. He’s not sure yet what he’ll use it for. I’m hoping it’ll stay in the garage or his man cave.

    Um, dude, that is genius! I have a baby gate sitting around in my house. I know what I’m going to do with it now. Thanks!

    That is brilliant!  And beautiful!  I’ve seen lots of these earring hanger tutorials, but they’re always way too small for all of my earrings.  This one is great!

    Great idea! Sure wish we hadn’t tossed our old baby gates. I’ll keep an eye out for one during garage sale season.

    Such a neat idea! I never would have thought to do that.

    That is a great idea, and I can see it working for other things besides baby gates. I love your design ideas, always.

    Nice work, lady! I wouldn’t have thought of something like this before, and now? Now, I’m definitely going to have to give it a shot! Thanks for sharing!

    What a wonderful idea! I never would have thought of this, but it is so cute I am going to have to try!
