Cutlery Tray for Jewelry!

Cutlery Tray for Jewelry!
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 peal 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. So while at walmart, I found some bamboo cutlery trays for $10 each! Second: I decided on what jewelry I wanted where and Lee started screwing in the hooks, which immediately cracked the back panel. Last: We screwed the tray to the wall using an anchor and a screw (super simple). Total Cost:

There Will Be Tables and Chairs… We’ve been desperately needing bedside tables since we moved into our new place. I’ve been looking around for some to buy, keeping in mind that (a)the bedroom is super tiny and (B) we have a malm bed and dresser and wanted something that didn’t look too “Ikea”. So we came up with these. We took a quick trip to the Ikea in Richmond and Home Depot on Friday night and built them on Saturday.

Most of us would just toss a jacket in the back of the car in the winter months. But here in Vermont we need a little more. Many of the vernacular farm houses I visit have at least a half dozen hooks per person lined up in their mud rooms. My wife and I each will have several different coats, jackets and vests in play all winter long. Add to that assorted scarves, hats and gloves, several of each for both of us, and your average coat rack doesn’t stand a chance.

Hidden Jewelry Box & Picture grace mentioned to me that jewelry storage is a hot topic for a lot of readers, so i set to work brainstorming some possibilities! i realized that there are basically two camps: people who like their jewelry on display (neatly of course), and people who like to hide it away (also neatly). so i am going to do two diys for jewelry storage that can satisfy both camps. the first is an attempt at hidden storage, which in this case is a mega top-secret, ninja-spy, behind-the-painting deal. i’ve always loved the idea of secret hiding places in fat old books, under rugs, and behind old paintings. this is pretty easy to rig up, especially if you have an old painting with a nice wood frame, but really any picture with a relatively wide wood frame will do fine. if you feel like you have too much jewelry to fit, this can also be a great way to store keys and mail by the entryway. or you could pair it with a nice leather bound book with a secret cutout container. have fun! – kate materials: 15. saw

My version of the Pouf! I love all of the Poufs available to purchase, including the cute Striped Poufs from West Elm! SO Cute, but so expensive! So I figured I could make my own! How hard could it be? I am an expert at pillows! Thrifty and Chic: furniture So, this is one of those stories of getting something and having it sit in your basement for years. Like 7 or so years. Yep. I wish that was uncommon around my house, but it really isn't. But, the bright side of this, is that I actually do get around to making things out of my little findings :) ..even though its more than half a decade later lol.
