While I was tidying up a bedroom recently I decided we needed something to keep a few bits of jewellery neat and tidy and had a crazy idea of making the Kaisercraft Advent Calendar / Bits’n pieces drawers into a Jewellery Box.
I decided to use the After Five collection as this will match the new colour scheme in the bedroom. I could not find any colour matched fancy hooks to hang the necklaces and bracelets on so decided to cut up some wood flourishes and fix them to the inside of the unit using Crystal Lacquer (which makes a very effective glue). I really like the end result – they are perfect for my little bits of jewellery.
The drawers are perfect for rings and larger heavier necklaces and brooches – I’ve covered the outside of each one in a strip of paper from the After Five collection and added pearls to decorate them. I left the inside of the drawers plain but you could line them with felt to protect your jewellery if preferred.
I added strips of the Debutante flocked paper from the After Five collection around the edges of the unit and a small vanity mirror in the corner (if you prefer you could add a larger mirror to cover the full size of the inside panel of the unit).
Here is a list of the products used in this project:
