Jewelry Box Idea

Happy New Year everyone. I hope your Holidays were all that you expected and then some. Can you believe that it's 2014 already? It's the start of a  new year and we all know what that means, more resolutions, more goals and GETTING ORGANIZED. Since I'm not big on resolutions, I've made a few short term goals for this year, and got a jump start on some organizing.

I love costume jewelry, but as you can see, I had no place to store all of it.  So I enlisted the help of Hubby and came up with a simple solution to solve my jewelry dilemma.

Here's a list of things needed for this project.
( 2 ) 8ft pieces of pre-primed 1"x4", 1/2 sheet pegboard ( 1 ) 4ft long 1/4 inch wide dowel, finishing nails, picture frame wire and eyelets.
Instructions.... Hubby cut 2 pieces of pine 5ft long and 4 pieces 12 inches long, and constructed a box.


To create the shelves Hubby used the ( 2 ) remaining  12" pieces and nailed them to the 5ft long pieces.
 An extra piece of pine was used as a guide to space the shelves equally apart.

This is how the box should look after the frame has been constructed.

Next, a piece of peg board was cut to size.......

and nailed onto the back of the box.

 Picture wire and eyelets were added, so the box can be hung on the wall.

The dowel was cut into several 2 inch pieces. The pieces will be used to hang the jewelry on.

Finally, the pieces were placed randomly in the peg board.  Now the fun part.... time to hang the jewelry!

What do you think? 

 I love how the jewelry boxes turned out. I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner.

The instructions are for the 5ft long box. I also had Hubby to construct two 4ft long boxes as well, but you can make them as big or small as you like. The possibilities are endless!

 Thanks for stopping by,


  1. I love it, Lory! Such a creative and functional idea! Such a nice way to display your jewelry.

    1. Thanks Brandi! I could use at least two more jewelry boxes so I can organize my remaining jewelry. Or I can stop buying jewelry all together, not a chance, I WILL BUILD MORE Boxes. Have a Super Weekend!

  2. That was a great idea.. Looks good and organized

    1. Thanks Jamala, the boxes have made my life much easier. Have a Great week!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.

My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Chat soon...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
