The Open Face Jewelry Box
- story and photos by Holly Lemoine Raymond
Hello everyone! Thanks for choosing to read our column this month in the Shoofly. This month’s project is one that ANYONE can do. It will only take a few minutes and will provide a great deal of functionality. I borrowed this idea (with permission) from a client whose home I recently listed. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
Guys, are you tired of seeing your girl’s jewelry on the bathroom sink or spread out all over the dresser in your room? If so, we’ve got a project for you (just in time for Mother’s Day)!
This project will kill two birds with one stone. It is a quick and easy project that will make a great gift, and it will help keep your bathroom sink and dresser clutter-free.
My inspiration on the open face jewelry box was Connie Hair, one of my clients. Thank you, Connie!
What will you need?
1 wooden tray
A handful of eyelet hooks
A handful of S-hooks
(Other options): vintage drawer knobs
First you will need to pick your tray. You can use a jewelry tray, breakfast tray, or any flat, wooden tray with sides that is at least 2 inches deep. These trays are so easy to find you may already have one lying around somewhere in your home. Or you can go to the closest Walmart or thrift store and find something to repurpose.
When your paint or stain has dried, you can start placing the eyelet hooks and/or drawer knobs in place.
Voila! It’s as easy as that. All that is left for you to do is mount it on the wall.
Thanks for reading and for allowing me to share this quick and easy DIY project with you. Happy Spring!
