(Or, I Am Overly Smug And Proud of Even The Smallest Craft Projects)
When we move (just a few weeks now!) into the house I will be getting my own small room to turn into a closet. I have been slowly thinking of ways to make it the most efficient closet I can including ordering 3 rolling racks and a waterfall (for staging outfits I think of for later wear).
I'm still on the hunt for a vanity (I have a mirror and a lamp, I need a smallish table with a nice sized drawer, I'm hoping to thrift it) and a chair. I also still need a rug. But I'm getting there. I have a couple of really cute jewelry storage things I've been working on for the problem of my overflowing collection of adornments. The first is this ring display I ordered from etsy.
After giving it a test run I removed all the foam rolls and unscrewed the legs. Then I painted the whole thing a much cheerier turquoise/teal color.
I also took a chance on a really ugly, sad, brown FILTHY little glass door jewelry box from Goodwill. It was $1.99. (No before shots, sorry, sometimes I get ahead of myself) I removed the drawers and carefully painted the whole thing the same color as the ring display. Then I put my earrings, both dangly and stud in it.
(The actual color is somewhere between this color and the color it appears in the other pictures. It's a very bright turquoise, almost teal)
I am pretty sure the little carousel wheel is meant for necklaces, but I don't know anyone with necklaces that short, and earrings seemed to fit really well in it. I'm really happy with how it came out.
