DIY display box for earrings, bracelets and other jewelry

I started off with this key box. I bought it at a flea market for less than a dollar.

Then I painted it white and distressed it with sandpaper. It’s not like I’m that into distressed stuff, it’s just that I’m not that good at painting furniture. So when it’s not perfect it’s better to make it look even less so.

And this is what it looks like now. I really wanted to have a display for my earrings because if I don’t see them, I don’t wear them! Do you guys have the same problem? For me, if it’s not in front of my eyes then it hardly exists at all.

I used a piece of pink fabric and some foam rubber to create a “pillow”.

And some golden elastics to hang the earrings onto.

And you can open the box, too! Inside there are hooks where you can hang bracelets or other things.

This is what it looks like inside.

  1. Какая интересная задумка!!! Мы с подружкой делаем тоже самое только на внутренней стороне дверцы шкафа, но недавно поняли, что маловато будет… (места) и твоя идея кстати! А они не пылятся на открытом пространстве? И ещё – откуда у тебя эти деревянные коробочки?

      Пылятся, конечно! Как и все остальное. Но это не проблема при регулярной уборке:) А коробочка – это ключница!

    this is a great idea. I also need my jewelry to be in front of my eyes else I hardly wear it. I couldn’t help but admire your lovely collection! You have some iconic pieces there!
