Today I’m excited to share with you a very simple shadow box jewelry storage project I tackled using a shadow box I found at Hobby Lobby!
I don’t wear much jewelry. Mostly stud earrings on a daily basis but I have a few nicer earrings and necklaces that are knotted up in my dresser jewelry box. I have the grand idea that if I display them where I can see them I’ll wear them more often…totally won’t happen but it will look pretty and not be tangled! 🙂
I’ve looked at these shadow boxes a few times at Hobby Lobby. They open in the front and immediately I thought it would be a great jewelry storage idea! I was particularly drawn to this one because of the oil rubbed bronze look I keep using and I liked that the sides were glass as well. Hobby Lobby does have a ton to choose from, all different sizes and colors and, of course, usually 40% off! You can always go to their website and print out a coupon if they aren’t on sale! Most also have a fabric backing so you could also probably just tack the pins where you want them and hang some necklaces. This one I snagged for around $20 on sale.
I bought some wood trim from Home Depot and cut it down to fit the width of the box. Then I sawed slots to slide stud earrings and drilled holes for the dangly ones. I also cut a piece of trim and added hooks for necklaces. All in all it’s three pieces of trim that I spray painted with oil rubbed bronze paint and super glued into the box. This box is also great because it had a ledge to easily glue the wood to!
Overall I’m really happy with this Simple Shadow Box Jewelry Storage! It’s hanging in our closet and I see it everyday but still don’t wear much out of it. 🙂 If I were to do it again I actually might get a bigger one from Hobby Lobby. Some of the really long necklaces touch the bottom and I have more wall space in this closet than I thought!
