Why did I make a headband organizer for a baby girl? My nephew and his wife have the sweetest little baby girl and she has a lot of headbands and hair accessories! Organizing and sorting headbands and bows for little girls can be quite challenging. I was up for that challenge!
I headed to Home Depot and Hobby Lobby for supplies. This picture is from last Fall, but if you follow me on Facebook you may have seen the facebook live I did recently of Lulu Mae checking out Home Depot. She’s so good while I shop!
How to make a headband organizer
Aren’t these hooks from Hobby lobby so perfect to hold hair accessories for a little girl?

Nail and glue shelf parts
I like to use gorilla wood glue for extra hold when I use my nail gun. The kreg multi-mark tool is helpful to get the correct measurements all around.
Paint headband organizer shelves
I made two small pieces and one larger piece. It's important to make sure the hook sets look okay on the small shelves. I readied the projects to paint with DecoArt Chalky Finish Paint and a cheap chip brush. You can tell I’ve used this brush for awhile. They are like fine wine-they improve with age.
Here are the two small shelf organizers after I painted them white.
This is the larger shelf that will hold the headbands.
Dry brush white hooks with pink paint
The white hooks were cute but I felt like they would look a little more feminine if I did a quick dry brush effect with some pink craft paint.

Glaze white shelves with Smoked Glaze
I can’t stop using this smoked glaze on my projects. It gives white wood the perfect gray glaze and seals it too!

Dab paint on screw heads to disguise them
Here’s a close-up look of the dry brushed hooks, and the gray glazed shelf. After attaching the hooks to the shelf board, I dabbed on some pink craft paint to the heads of the screws.
Check out the sweet ribbon I purchased to compliment the shelves!
Add saw tooth hangers to back of headband organizer
I like using these hammered in sawtooth hangers for quick and easy projects like this hook shelf.
Hang trio of headband organizer shelves on the wall
Here is the set of hangers and headboard organizers for baby Shelby. I made these so that they could hang on the wall with the sawtooth hangers, but the pretty ribbon could be added to look as though they are suspended from the ribbon.
I am in love with how pretty the smoked glaze looks with the dry brushed pink hooks. Anna loved how they turned out. Do you?

Hi, there! I’m Gail, the author and mastermind behind My Repurposed Life. I’m obsessed with finding potential in unexpected places and believe that with a little hard work and imagination, any old thing can be made useful again—myself included! I hope you’ll enjoy the journey and pick up a few tools along the way… literally!
love how this project turned out! very nice!
Thank you so much Nova! I appreciate you checking it out. I love making custom orders for family and friends. 🙂
You are so incredibly talented. I love opening your emails because you make so many things from scratch. Many bloggers repeat what someone else has done with their own color scheme and that is all. Thank you for always thinking outside the box.
These are adorable. I went to Lowe’s to buy a can of the smoke glaze, and they were out of it. It must be popular. I’m still working on my grocery list chalk board and matching rolling pin holder.
I’m sure that Lulu Mae makes sure each board and hook is perfect. She’s so sweet.
