Jewelry Organizer: From an Antique Typeset Case

My husband and I are currently renovating our bedroom. I wanted a more cottage feel with blues and whites. So with a little white crown molding, a fresh coat of light blue paint, and new beige carpet our room is just about complete. In the meantime, I began organizing and decorating. The first thing I wanted to do was to declutter my dresser starting with my jewelry clump.


What I had wasn’t working. Let’s face it, every women is trying to figure out a way to store and still display jewelry. I can’t even begin to tell you how many jewelry boxes I’ve owned since I was a teen. Β I don’t even have very much jewelry; I just don’t wear it. Diamonds and gardening just don’t mix well. πŸ™‚ Although not a lot of jewelry, I still needed a storage idea.

In search on Etsy I found one that I absolutely LOVED made out of a typeset case! However, the price tag wasn’t working–$129! Not that it isn’t worth it, but remember I don’t have that much jewelry and couldn’t justify spending that. Besides, I ALWAYS think… Hey! I can make that! Β Ironically, my husband said we had an old typeset case above our garage! Awesome! ANNNDDDD it was already the color that matched our bedroom! Even better!Β So, with the help of my husband (as always) we tried to figure it out.


So with a trip to the hardware store for hooks, we got started.


I first organized my jewelry into the little boxes. Ummmmm…. is that all the jewelry I have? Β Room to grow I guess. πŸ™‚ He will eventually add hooks in every box, but we wanted to hang it and it is time consuming to put hooks in every box.


My husband simply pre-drilled the holes and screwed in the hooks.


We added hooks to the bottom for my necklaces.


I LOVE it! I also think it adds character to the room.
