Good morning! Are you enjoying a 3 day weekend or are you working today? We have President’s Day today to celebrate President Washington and Lincoln’s birthday. I even talk about it with my preschoolers. They actually have a pretty good memory for it all. It’s always great to see what they actually retain.
I received this jewelry box from my mom. It had been hers. I have had it for quite a while and finally decided what I was going to do with it. It always takes me the longest time to decide. There are just too many choices! But as I was going through my jewelry, I realized I had quite a few costume jewelry rings. I had them all in a small bowl, but it was hard to see what I had, so I decided to make this box a ring holder.
I started by cutting dowels the length of the top and bottom shelf. The fabric I used is white flannel, but I think a vintage material would look really nice. I just didn’t have any on hand when I started this project.
I cut strips of flannel long and wide enough to roll the dowel up in.
I folded in the ends and then rolled the dowel up in the flannel.
I didn’t glue mine, but you certainly could. Mine ended up having a tight enough fit that I didn’t need any glue to keep them in place.
Once your pieces are rolled up, place them in your box.
I used the edge of a scissor to tuck the edges in.
For the bottom, I wanted a small shelf to lay some of my brooches on. I found that a butter box was the perfect fit! I ran some glue on it and covered it with the same white flannel.
I place the butter box in the back and then added 3 more rolls in the front.
Now it was time to add the bling!
I love being able to see all my rings at the same time and not have to dig through a bowl to find the one I want.
I don’t wear brooches very often, but these are some of my favorites.
I’m glad I got this project done. One more thing accomplished and a little more organized! We are still plugging along on the house updates. We have flooring in the main bathroom now and I painted the inside of the front door this weekend. I will be sharing soon!

I totally connected with this idea. I do not have a double tier one, but have something similar that I use for some of my costume jewelry. I love this idea for rings and pins, since I have a good collection of these items.
I’m so glad you like it! We love hearing that! Thanks for stopping by!
I absolutely love this idea Pamela. I have a similar box at home and I can’t wait to change it after seeing your post. Brilliant
Aww! Thank you! I hope you have fun with your box too!

What a beautiful upcycle! I love giving new life to old objects. Using the dowels is super smart, too. Makes it so much easier. Thanks for sharing your tutorial with us at Merry Monday this week!
I love that I was able to use something of my mom’s. I’m so glad you took the time to stop by!
