How To: Vintage Hanging Jewerly Box


I untangled necklaces and rediscovered many jewerly pieces over the weekend. My mom helped me make this hanging jewerly box which now is an art piece on my bathroom wall. It all began with misplacing my jewerly because I have pieces stashed in multiple drawers all over my apartment. Also, I am always rushing in the morning and never have time to untangle my bracelets and necklaces. Now, each piece is beautifully displayed in a nook, and I can accessorize in no time.

The Hanging Jewelry Box is inexpensive, fun, and easy to make. First, sand the printer drawer (found at a local antique store), then paint the color of your choice, and finally screw in your knobs and hooks. The total cost is around $40.











Materials
Antique Printer Drawer: $30
Spray Paint: $2
Glass doorknobs and hooks: $8
