My new bedroom is brightly colored, with one fall orange-colored wall, and three mustard yellow walls. Luckily, I have a fairly large window so the room is nice and bright in daylight, but at night, the biggest block of time I spend in the bedroom, it can feel small and dark. So I've kept the bedding and accents white to lighten the space.
When I saw this at a store on clearance, I thought it was perfect for my bedroom. Inside, it was just a plain box barely lined.
I bought it anyway, thinking it would make a beautiful jewelry box. At home I googled "jewelry insert." Within ten minutes I'd found an online source for padded inserts. The ones I chose were about 3/4 in. thick with slits cut to hold rings. When the inserts came in the mail, I cut them to fit using my good sewing scissors, and voila! I have a custom jewelry box for my nice rings. I was able to put a layer in the lid as well as on the bottom. I've also stuck earrings in the ring slots, and used the bottom to hold a few special necklaces. The total project cost less than twenty bucks, and my heirlooms now have a home.
