I recently had a friend mention that she was really struggling with how to organize her jewelry – earrings mostly. She had tried several methods – but all had failed for her. She said that what she really wanted was a drawer she could pull out and they would all just be there. She didn’t already have a drawer to use for this purpose so…of course…I was like….CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!
This is the solution I came up with. I hope others will find it useful or inspirational.
While perusing Hobby Lobby….as one like me does on a frequent basis…..I came across this nifty little thing designed to be used for scrapbook paper storage.
I did not see it as that. Instead, all I saw was a great jewelry box! It was HUGE, which is great, as I knew my friend had quite a jewelry collection. On top of that, with my 40% off coupon it was only like $20. Score!
Never mind that the drawers are empty. Pshhh, I can fix that! So off I went.
Other supplies used included:
- Foam Board
- Cardboard (I used the box it came in for most of it!)
- Velvet Fabric (I ended up using almost exactly a whole yard)
- Exacto Knife and Cutting Mat
- Elmer’s Glue-All
- Glue Gun
- Ruler/Measuring Tape
- Pencil or Pen
See the video tutorial below for a complete walk through of how I completed this part of the project.
Yes, I decorated the exterior! Of course! That is coming soon!
