vintage letterpress make-up and nail polish display

Pin It

A couple weeks ago I blogged about a DIY vintage letterpress jewelry holder. Since I have two vintage letterpress holders and I love the look so much, I decided to make one into a wall mounted, make-up and nail polish organizer. Oh, and make a video about the whole process (watch above)! You could paint your letterpress a fun color and store or display whatever you want in the various squares. Letterpress holders also look amazing with nothing in them – see out how I styled these empty above my thrifted dresser.

Video features Mr. Kate jewelry along with other pieces from my personal collection.


  • To mount the letterpress to the wall we just used a sawtooth picture hanger attached to the center of the letterpress and hung on the wall with one screw.

    This is super rad! Do you have any ideas on organizing studded earrings? There are many ways to hand and display dangly earrings with the hook-type backings but I’ve never seen one for studs/ earrings with short backings. I usually wear the same studs for weeks because fetching another pair feels like a chore…
