SWOON.
SWOON SWOON SWOON.

I am SO keeping this in my back pocket for a rainy day project (when we have a place that needs one of these) - I LOVE that this forces your kitty to use the litter tracking mat!

Genius.

thanks for the love, guys!
The screw eyes & mismatched cabinet knobs were inspired by bluebirdheaven over at etsy -- if I had 100$, I would've happily bought their converted antique printer drawer!

I definitely think mesh is a good idea - though I stumbled upon a fellow craftster who used burlap (and someone else who used lace!) -- so I may look at alternative fabrics.

I wish I had the patience to refinish the wood (darker stain would've made the handles pop), but oh well. Maybe next time. Or when I get tired of looking at this (hopefully that won't be soon)!

@RuneAriala - I'll zip along and edit my original post with some new pictures!

@Kiki870 - I wish I had drawers that had nice knobs like these! In fact, I found these in a bits-and-bobs section of mismatched knobs from a small little hardware store nestled at a local farmer's market (if any of you are familiar with London Ontario, I went to Trail's End). 50c a piece couldn't be beat! Because everything I loved at RONA cost at least 2.50$ per knob, and I wasn't willing to spend more on the hardware than the shelf thing itself.

if I can find a nice handle with a similar finish (for not an arm and a leg), i may use that as an alternative to screw eyes for the top. It'll also give more hanging necklace space! We'll see. I'll keep you posted when I venture into finishing this piece off Cheesy

hi folks! I've been a lurker for a while now, and every time I see your new projects I think I'm craftsier than I really am. Baby steps, right? It's still a work in progress, but please share any ideas you may have for the middle section and top sections - I want to make more earring space and was wondering if there are alternatives to attaching 2 dowels, etc. I'm mostly proud of the thriftiness of this project:

kitschy shadowbox/shelf thingy from Goodwill = 4$
hardware from bits&bobs section at the hardware store at a market = 3.5$
me thinking I'm craftsy = priceless



wasn't particularly in love with these pawn-like knobs, but they were screw-in and matched the finish of the other ones. Works perfectly for something 3D on the sides:
