diy - vintage jewelry stand

I think 2013 is the year I am going to get organized.  I just can't stop organizing everything. Sometimes my organization projects create even bigger messes than I began with, but we won't talk about that.....

A few weeks ago, it was my endless supply of ribbon and my packaging materials {which I organized in this Ikea cart} and this week it is my jewelry.

I have so many little dishes that I use for rings, hairpins, earrings, etc but they were crowding the top of my bookshelf and I was running out of room.

I stopped by the Salvation Army last week {on 40% off day!} and bought a few brass candle sticks and two small vintage plates.  I added one plate that I already had at home, some super glue, and boom - simple, super easy, and cute vintage jewelry stand.

 I love it!


  1. Great idea!!!'my jewelry box is a huge mess that overflows everywhere! Might have to try It!

  5. All the thrift stores by me are not only gross, but are also not baby stroller accessible. I need to make this!

  7. This is super beautiful. Pinning this idea for sure. I love it!! And it's sturdy, too?

    1. yep! very sturdy. just find candlesticks with that don't wobble and have a flat top for the plate above to sit on and you will be good :).

  8. If you are not very sure of the ring size for your mother, you must not hesitate going through average womens ring size and select the best one for her.

  9. Wow what a beautiful idea! One of my goals for 2014 is to find a unique way to display and organize jewelry.


thank you so much for your comment! i read and enjoy each and every one :).
