DIY Jewelry Storage


Hi there Hometalk Friends! I'm in the middle of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days Series on my blog and I thought I would pop over here and share one of my favorites with ya'll! I found these gorgeous aqua dishes at the thrift store and I just had to bring them home with me:

Pretty, huh? I also picked two candlesticks like the one you see below. I chose these three dishes...

To create the perfect place to store the jewelry I use most often!

I was able to unscrew the ends of each candlestick and then used my miter saw to cut two pieces that looked proportionate for this project.

I found that cutting them at the wider parts worked best. I spray painted them and sanded them. Then attached everything together using E6000 glue.

I love that I can easily find the pieces of jewelry I use most often.

This was so simple to make and with all the options in beautiful china out there, the possibilities are endless!

    love this idea & the dishes. do you think that glue is better than gorilla glue ? thanks for responding

    • Thanks, Beth! I have only used gorilla glue once and if I remember correctly, it puffed up so to speak...that doesn't happen with the E6000. LOVE that stuff! I also used it to glue paper clips onto the back of plates I have in a plate gallery wall in my bedroom and they've held up perfectly for almost 3 years. 😊

    Where do you find the E6000 glue at Lowe's Walmart?

    Great idea! Even as a gift, for your teens more expensive out! Stuff for the bathroom & bedroom, as a house worming party!! A larger one for kitchen fruit too!
