A place for the jewels.

This weekend I have big plans to re-work the old toolbox I bought at brimfield into a glamorous jewelry armoire. Posting about it here will hopefully make me accountable so I actually get to the project, instead of getting distracted by my comfy couch and bountiful DVR.

In my last apartment, I had several stacks of jewelry boxes and drawers in my nightstand for my everyday pieces. As you can see here (just my everyday jewels), this is a much needed piece of storage furniture for me:

I’ve been pulling inspiration images for the project now for a few weeks. While my piece is going to probably look a bit more industrial (it is a tool box after all), this image from Domino has my all-time favorite jewelry armoire:

Of course, the Lonny magic has been tapped onto a few gorgeous vignettes with jewelry armoires as well:

Seeing these pictures together is giving me some motivation — and a few new ideas. Hopefully I’ll have a before and after to share at the end of the weekend!

PS: Make sure to stop by next week, I have a great series featuring amazing guest bloggers starting!

    Yeah! So happy you posted about this, because now my obnoxious comments about it will make you get started on it. I need to make my own, which is why I need you’rs as inspiration. Go get to work! 🙂

    It seems I never have enough space for my jewelry… my husband complains they always end up all over the house! I love this idea and can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    Happy Weekend!
