I built this jewelry box out of scraps as a prototype to test out my Easy Jewelry Box plan, which is inspired by the Willy Bookcase and Master Closet System drawers. When Mom saw it unfinished, she liked it and called dibs on the first one! Well, since this one is now for Mom (and the lumber was free), I went ahead and spent some extra $ for hers – used the self-adhesive felt for the drawer and box bottoms, some embossed felt to line the drawers, added adjustable drawer dividers, and solid antique brass knobs – ‘glammed’ it up a bit. It is painted and stained to match her bedroom furniture. For Mom, I even stained the inside of the drawer box. :)
The build was easy, and took less than 2 hrs. I did both stain and paint for the finish on this one, and it took about 2 hrs to do that. I’m planning to make several more of these in different finishes, and give them as gifts.
