I’m excited to introduce you to a new contributor that you’ll see on here from time to time! Anna is a talented designer and DIYer who believes in creating a home that’s beautiful and affordable. I’ve loved everything I’ve seen her do, so I’ve asked if I could share some of her projects and invite her perspective on Hither & Thither. Today she’s sharing a project from her site, Annabode, and next week she’ll be back with something original! Welcome, Anna—so pleased you’re here.
As I was staring at the jungle of our dresser the other day, I decided I needed to check my egregious clutter habit and tame my jewelry once and for all! An old cigar box my dad gave me was conveniently positioned amongst the various odds and ends. Problem and solution all in the space of five minutes!
And so, I give you: the DIY jewelry box—from a cigar box! I’m really loving the marbled paper, leather, and brass details. You can make this in an afternoon and use any kind of smallish wooden box you have kickin’ around.
