I LOVE Jewelry, real jewelry, costume jewelry, all of it . . . almost as much as I love shoes!
I have a small jewelry box for my “real” jewelry. As much as I’d love to fill a wall with gold and diamond jewelry, we can’t afford that so as far as my real items go, I only own the classics. A small pair of diamond studs, a pair of pearl earrings, a pearl necklace, a cocktail ring, a couple of white gold bands, and of coarse my wedding band and engagement ring!!
But it wasn’t my “good” jewelry I was having a hard time storing, it was my costume jewelry I couldn’t make room for! There’s nothing I love more than a great long necklace to complete a look but, what I had was a tangled mess of chains and beads.
My dad sprayed each of the trays white for me, while Lee worked on his car, kind of a work share program those two have going on . It took 2 coats each, adding up to almost 2 cans of spray paint!
I decided on what jewelry I wanted where and Lee started screwing in the hooks, which immediately cracked the back panel. Bamboo is a very hard wood so it won’t expand to accommodate the size of the hook’s screw. So he had to drill pilot holes before screwing the hooks in . . . a bit more trouble but it worked!
We screwed the tray to the wall using an anchor and a screw (super simple).I organized my jewelry by color, and style. I seem to have a lot of black jewelry so it all got grouped together.
