I have my jewelry stored in a plastic hanging divided organizer made for jewelry in he closet but some of it doesn't fit well in the pockets, particularly bracelets, so I wanted to come up with a new storage solution. I'm not a fan of some of DIY jewelry holders because I think it's just plain tacky to have a jewelry holder out as decor and I don't really have a place for some of the ideas I've seen. I finally decided I could give in a little and that having a few bracelets out on the dresser would be okay. Having made this decision, I was thrilled when I found this beauty, uh ugly duckling, at our Salvation Army thrift store for $1.
It took me a bit to decide on a color. I'd have loved a bright yellow or turqouise, but that would really clash with our bedroom decor. I was strolling through Lowe's one day and saw this lovely green- satin Everlade glen. It has a little pop against the green already in our room, but doesn't clash.
As you can see above, this thing was NASTY. I cleaned it with some Murphy's and then sanded it before painting. I skipped the primer because I used Valspar paint and primer in one. Now it really is a beauty.
Even more lovely with some jewelry hanging on it.
Just so you can really appreciate the difference a little spray paint can make...
Just because I like pictures
