DIY jewelry organizer16.11.2012
The idea for this DIY jewelry organizer came to me after seeing this image of egg carton doubling as a jewelry holder. If by chance there still is a person who doesn’t know that, I’d like to point out that I’m a big advocate for turning disposable into non-disposable. My previous projects include this metal choker (made out of thick paper), clear clutch (just a rolled thick plastic bag) and chain ring (a piece of a broken necklace worn as a ring), to name a few. Since I have a lot of stuff to do today, I won’t bother with the text too much and will jump straight to the point.
The instructions for making this quirky interior detail are pretty basic but I’ll still list them. For this particular jewelry box, I used a big egg carton and white acrylic paint. Using a painting brush, I colored the box with acrylic paint. My color of choice was white, plus I had some left over paint so I thought to use that up. Of course, you can get a can of spray paint in whatever color you prefer or try decoupage, it’s entirely up to you. Also, if you want the color to be more prominent, you might have to coat the carton with two or three layers of paint. I love that rustic feel and the texture, so I left a few spots slightly uncolored. When done painting, place it in a well ventilated area to completely dry (leave it overnight for best results). And there you have it – cheap but most definitely chic and creative way of storing your jewelry!
