Jewelry Box

I just realized it's half way through February and I haven't shared a single post about something Adam has made.  My hubby is super creative very talented when it comes to wood working.  Today I'm going to show you the Jewelry Box he made me.

The very first thing Adam ever made me was this little box.

He often tells me he's going to take it back to the garage and refinish the wood, but I like it just the way it is.


But not long after he made me this I realized I had a lot more jewelry.  So I started looking online to see what other options were out there.  And the one I liked the most was a jewelry box that was hidden behind a full length mirror.  I actually figured we'd get use out of it.  I really didn't want another piece of furniture cluttering up our bedroom, so a mirror that you can hang on the wall was perfect.


So here's a picture of our walk in closet with the Jewelry box at the back.  You can see it doubles as a scarf holder.  Oh and you're looking at Adam's half, I chose this point of view so you wouldn't have to see a reflection of the toilet that's right behind me.  You're welcome. :)  And yes this closet is one of the reasons we bought the house, I'll never be able to go back to tiny closets again.

Now it's time to open 'er up.  We decided on gray fabric to cover the back.

On the left side is foam behind the fabric so you can poke earrings into it.  Then below that some hooks for bracelets.

The right side is for necklaces.  And the bottom is for all those little pieces that don't fit anywhere else.  And yes looking at this, makes me realize I need to clean it out and get rid of pieces I never wear.

It's the perfect piece and having the mirror in the closet is perfect.

Isn't my man so talented? I think so :)
