Thrifty Organization

When I was a young girl my parents gave me a jewelry box, this box served me well for many years.  But as my earring collection grew everything just seemed a jumbled mess.

                                                                          My old box

                          A friend of mine gave me this idea.  Just recently I dressed it up a bit.

                                            A plastic 3 drawer bin, and some ice cube trays.

                                                     Paint made specifically for plastic.

The top had an indentation so I cut a piece of cardboard to fit the indentation.

Using spray adhesive I attached some cotton batting.

Picked out some fabric that matched my bedroom colors.

                                               And with the spray adhesive added the fabric.

Then fill the ice cube trays with earrings and put them into the drawers.

                                         A very organized jewelry box!!  And not very costly!!
