::DIY // ring holder::

Thursday 31 January 2013

This is another project that took care of some much needed organization for my jewelry (see the other one here). I've been using these vintage bobbins to hold rings on top of my dresser, but they're not very stable by themselves and keep falling over when the drawers open and close. So, this was the solution.

I found these vintage bobbins at an antique fair in Florida. The guy had hundreds of them! (You can also find them all over Etsy.) The wood is from a local shop that's filled with architectural salvage and "junk."

Since the bobbins are hollow, I just drilled two long screws up from the bottom of the old piece of wood and put the bobbins over them. I may go a step further and fill the space with putty to make it a bit more snug, but I'm happy with it so far.

After spending the past weekend creating some things for the house, I'm hooked. I can't wait to make more things and finally use some of the items I've been holding on to.
