Light On-The-Wall Jewelry Case
January 10, 2014 by
This project is kind of old, I actually built this On-The-Wall Jewelry Case during the Summer but after being asked to make one for a friend I decided to share the steps to my super simplistic on the wall jewelry case.
Ok, so for people with houses built during the big real estate rush, you may understand. For some reason, the walls in my home do not seem to be as strong as the walls of the house I grew up in. Yes, these houses are supposed to be well built, but I'm not to sure about the drywall used, because I have had a painting slide off the wall or some nails move through with too much ease. I'm not used to having to insert a nail on specific areas of the wall, I like to hang a picture wherever I please!
I needed a jewelry case for my costume jewelry because I was tired of having to look through my jewelry boxes to dig whichever pair I wanted to wear out. I wanted one that hangs on the wall, but the ones sold in store were way to heavy and way too much money for their size. I decided to make one myself.
I went to a home improvement store looking for light, not cheap wood. I wanted something that was sturdy, but thin and thankfully I found a lot of options. While in the store, I Googled different styles to try but unfortunately in order to create the wood door style I really liked I would have to use heavy wood which defeats the purpose, so I decided I'll just create curtains using cloth I have at home. Then, since I considered curtains, I might as well cover the exterior with the same cloth because a light wood exterior with curtains may look awkward.
With pieces of 3 pieces of wood (I had it cut to size in store), nails, glue, hammer and a cloth, here's what I came up with...cost me less than $15.
