new jewelry wall

It has been driving me crazy that I don't have my jewelry well organized. I've been wracking my brain for a solution to this problem and then it hit me - I would use the vintage printer tray that I have to hold alot of my smaller pieces of jewelry and antlers to hang longer pieces. I had been using the printer tray to hold Simon's matchbox cars but it was too hard for him to keep them in there so it rarely got used. I spent HOURS adding brass cup hooks by hand to most of the little boxes that I could squeeze my fingers into. The ones I couldn't add a hook to would be used to hold pieces sitting at the bottom, ie. rings. It was alot of work but I am so happy with the end result. I have about a dozen antlers at home too that needed a purpose so two of them ended up being perfect for my necklaces.

Here is my new jewelry wall in our master bedroom:

    1. I nailed one of these things into the back of the tray, at the top where the wood is thick:

      then I put a screw in the wall to hold the weight.

  6. One place to avoid reduced price mattresses is purchasing at yard sales. There are no cleanliness standards and the history of the mattress is unknown. truck mattress
