Jewelry Holder

The last time my mother-in-law visited I realized my guest room didn't have a good area for her to organize her jewelry.

I decided to make a jewelry holder for that room using things I had in my studio.

I took three large blocks I purchased at the thrift store (they measure 3.5" x 3.5")
and covered them with scrapbook paper that coordinated with the guest room colors.  The edges were antiqued to give them a little age.
Next I took a silver plated candlestick and brushed it with a little antiquing medium to tone down the shininess of the metal.
I stacked and glued the three blocks on top of the candlestick and then added some cup hooks to hang the jewelry.




A quick and inexpensive project that will hopefully help my guests keep their jewelry organized when they come visit.

I'm linking today with Cottage Instincts for Make It 4 Monday.
I've already checked out some of the great projects that have been linked to the party. Head on over and check it out!

Have a great week.

  5. Jane,
    Wayne, the kids and I went to a local art festival this afternoon. There was one booth that totally made me think of you! Although I still think you corner the market on creative ideas! I just love this holder!

    Another great idea! I just love how you make use of all the things you have laying around, really inspires me to look harder at what I already have.
    Thanks

  23. Well Good Heavens ~~~ did that ever turn out well! Amazing, Jane! Hey, what did you use for the antiquing to tone down the silver?

    I just may have to come visit since I would have a place to hang my jewelry! ;)
