Rustic Jewelry Organizer {repurposed vintage garden rake}

I've started wearing jewelry lately... shocking for me, I know.  I don't do it often, but I do like to try to get dressed up occasionally.  School teachers are supposed to dress up to go to work, right?  But I like jeans... so, I figure if I wear a nice necklace, it will look like I tried.

Several months ago, I was asked by my ward Relief Society to teach a class on DIY organization projects.  I had a few ideas of my own, but I wanted to find more ideas on Pinterest.   I came across this gem ... not sure the original source.  
I Loved the idea... but wasn't sure if I had room to hang it in my kitchen any where near where my stove was.... it seemed silly to hang it way across the kitchen and have to go fetch a spatula to cook. 

Then it dawned on me... it could hold my necklaces in the bathroom!  So, I went to my dad and asked for an old rake.  He brought me home the perfect rake from the ranch that my mom had used to tidy up the dirt:)
Normally, I would probably spray paint it turquoise.  However, in my bathroom, I am going for a more rustic look... I have an old window with peeling paint, so this rusty rake goes with it perfect!

Oh, and notice, the necklaces are hanging in rainbow order... need orange:)
