I am a sucker for a great deal, especially when it comes to jewelry. I love shopping at Forever21 and Charming Charlie for jewelry, both for me and for gifts for friends. I think I like these costume jewelry shops because, a) they’re ridiculously affordable, and b) I change up my jewelry with frequency. Plus, I love it when someone compliments something I’m wearing and I get to take it off and give it to them. Such a treat!
Although I have great jewelry storage solutions for most everything, I have a couple of pairs of earrings that won’t hang on my jewelry holder. So, I headed to Goodwill to get a plain dish that I could transform into a jewelry tray. I found this cute wooden dish that had some scratches and marks on it for just 99 cents. Boom!
I also had some left over doilies from an Anthropologie-style vase I made a while back (see it here), so I thought I’d use them to give the jewelry dish a little texture. I lightly glued the doilies to the tray and let the glue dry.
Then I grabbed one of my favorite colors of spray paint, metallic gold, and got to spraying.
It turned out so cute and it’s perfect for the earrings that needed a home!
Also, Happy Cinco de Mayo! Don’t forget to check out some of my Cinco de Mayo finds here!
