The Jewelry Holder

Let's just get this out of the way right now: I have a lot of necklaces, and it can be a little tricky to store them. I used to keep them in 3 of these from the Container Store,

but I had so many that I had to layer on every hook. J was tired of hearing the beads hit against the acrylic sides every morning, so he took matters into his own hands. For several weekends, he slaved in the garage until this was finished:


It's stained dark -- which I love -- and matches the rest of our bedroom furniture. He even used the same handle that we used for all of our kitchen and bathroom cabinets. The thing is huge -- almost as tall as I am! And the inside is more magical than the outside...


Look at all the hooks! 


And there's a light at the top! With the press of a button, I can put the light on full blast, or I can give my jewels a "romantic glow."

He thought of everything. :)

If you look closely, you'll see that there are 3 hooks that are empty, so... if you'll excuse me, I'm going necklace shopping.
