This is where I’ve been keeping my jewelry. I’ve had that jewelry box since I was about 7. Yup. It’s all an embarrassing mess.
Is it any wonder that I just don’t accessorize much?
So I took an old frame
and spray painted it white.
Then I took
some sheet metal that was left over from our last project, and
the very last scraps of tongue and groove planks. Also painted white. I used
these glass knobs from an old friend of mine. She gave me 8 of them, for no other reason than she’s one of the nicest people on the planet.
They’re old, they have some paint on them; some are chipped. In short, they’re absolute perfection!
I just glued the planks in using
my trusty and well used glue gun. I made sure the groove side went up
so that the sheet metal would fit into the groove. That solved the “how do I trim it out so it looks finished” dilemma.
Then I screwed the knobs into place.
So I had a place to hang necklaces, bracelets and earrings that have hooks. But what about things that won’t hang?
Yes. That is a soap dish. It is a tad vintage, crooked and rusty.
But it works!
To hang my organizer, I just used another knob and a long drywall screw. I found the middle of the sheet metal, and drilled it all into place. It gives me one more place to hang things.
There’s NO wobble on this thing! It’s staying put.
The earrings stay put. In pairs, even.
The bracelets and necklaces stay put. They’re easy to find and easy to put away.
And, I have room for more!
