If we're all thinking outside the box, doesn't that just put us in a bigger box?

I saw the idea for this in a magazine, but I forget which one. This was a super easy project and fairly cheap. i got a 10"x13" shadow box on sale, took out the glass, pasted in some cute paper and screwed in the knobs. It's a vast improvement over the necklace tree I was using, and it has the added advantage of being mounted on the wall!

I really like it. Did you just use drawer knobs? I've been trying to think of ways to put my jewerly somewhere (new bathroom is really small w/ no drawers or cabinets, and a pedestal sink, doh!), Wonder if I can do this and drop it on the bathroom wall, hmm!

What a great idea! I'll definitely be making this for my new apartment. My current system of nails stuck on the edges of my bulletin board is functional but not quite attractive...

that's pretty!  it looks like something that would cost a LOT over at this website.

where is a good place for finding shadow boxes?  i saw some at hobby lobby, but not nearly the selection i was expecting, and way expensive.

i got a good one at a yard-sale once, but that seems to have been a fluke.

Love this idea and the outcome! I must duplicate this, my jewelery is so unorganized. Tongue

Thanks for all of the nice words! If you make one, please post it I would love to see all of the different ones

I got the shadow box at Micheal's for 40% off, so it was about 12 dollars. The knobs are drawer knobs - the screws they came with were too long, but luckily I had some shorter ones with those little metal ring things that prevent them from pulling through the cardboard.

i hung mine next to my dresser in the closet...i had my necklaces on one of those little tree stands and it fell over all of the time.

Also, the one I saw in the mag had a little bowl or something on the bottom to hold rings, but I already have a box for that.

i love that.  it looks professional, and i'm obsessed with the damask print on the paper.  how deep is your shadow box?
