I have an old wine crate I've been using as a bookshelf for a while, when it struck me that I never read those books and I needed a new jewelry display (all of my jewelry had been lumped into a suitcase under my bed).

Update: stuff kept falling through the slot that was the handle. So now:



Yay for dollar store mirrors! It's exactly the right height, too, by some miracle of God. (Thanks, God!  Grin)
