The Jewellery Box-Stand!!!

Do you remember my post on Jewellery Storage back in september?  I mentioned that we were going to make a jewellery box-stand for my daughter.

Here it is...... the jewelry box we made for Gabrielle:


What do you think???  I absolutely ADORE it!!!  I actually want to make one for myself and probably one for my youngest. hehe 

This is what it looks likes without jewellery on it:


Measurements: 13.5'' high x 8'' deep x 12'' wide
The feet are actually little wooden door knobs.  This idea came from my Dad.  : )

Let me know if you try to make one or if you have any questions.


P.S. I'll be linking to these Parties.

I love the design. Very unique. Nice job.

Leah said...

That's awesome, do you have a tutorial at all?

Julie @White Lights on Wednesday said...

This is a great idea. I'm not sure if I wanted to go with all the wall hung jewelry storage set ups I've been seeing lately. This is a great alternative. I'm pinning it.

That's sooo amazing! I need one of those badly.

Christine said...

No, I didn't do a step by step on this project. However, if you have any questions please feel free to ask :)

Christine said...

Thanks :)

Jewelry organizer overall is pretty tricky to create. And there are tones of these made from picture frames with wire backings. Yours is such a unique piece! I bet you keep some bracelets at the bottom in the drawer.

Just Jaime said...

Great idea and great way to keep your necklaces from getting tangled!

Jess said...

What did you use for the wood pieces inside of the box? And how big are the holes you drilled for the earrings?

Kristi said...

The pieces inside the box are actually piece of scrap wood my father had laying around. We just trimmed them to be the same size.

I don't remember off hand the side bit I used for the holes. I did take out an earring (with the biggest stem) and used that to help me decide the size of the holes.

Mary Sullivan Frasier said...

What a great idea! I love that it's tall enough to keep necklaces from pooling up at the bottom. I think my hubby could make one for me if I show him your post. Stopping by from Mix It Up Mondays. Thanks for sharing this sweet jewelrey box/stand!
