Fit For A Queen!!!

What do you do on a rainy Saturday???
You invent a project!!
I took these items......

 And added them to old window frame.

 I created this!!! All with objects I already had....and free!!!

 I added extras like these cherubs.....

 Could you guess what it was?????
A jewelry holder!!!

 I had been wanting a jewelry holder.....lots of them couldn't hold even half of my jewelry and they wanted $150 for them!!! I have so many other things to spend my money on (yard sales)!!!
Each necklace is separated from more tangles! Earrings are all visible (at least the wire ones....still looking for a solution for the other kind). Hair accessories.....all in one place!!

The frame was free.....the posts were free from the trash.....the diamond mesh for the top and only things I actually paid for were the cherubs ($1.00 for the pair),  the metal flowers on top (.50), the architectural details on the top were a flea market find, and the mirror hooks around the bottom (.99 each.....a long time ago)!!! The entire project for everything was around $7.50.....but, no money out of hand today.....everything I had on hand.
I love it!!! I can see all of my jewelry!!! I found things I had forgotten I had.
 My daughter paid me the biggest compliment....she said she wanted one!!!!
A jewelry holder fit for a queen!!!

I'm joining LOTS of parties this week!!!

  1. Visiting from Homemaker on a Dime. Wow! That is a seriously fancy jewelry holder. Are the springs attached right to the wall? I couldn't tell from the image.

  2. Hi Crystal!!
    Ooooh! my gosh! the last birdcage I created I added some of those tin flowers to the side of the cage! this time I could not find any at anny thrift shops around, I would find them like those old copper brass colored and the painted ones! I now see why...You have them all over here :)

    So funny that you are creating with what I need girl!
    Thank you for stopping by, I can see we will have alot of fun with creating alike :)

    Thank you for your following and beautiful comment on my wire cage "Shelter"

  3. I say, that is one fabulous project!!! You have a great eye for revamping things that's for sure Crystal!

  4. Now this is what I like...a project made from treasures I already have. Love those springs, what a great idea to hold jewelry. Actually,it's a wonderful piece all by itself too. Great imagination!

  5. Wow! Love the bed springs! Inspiring.

  6. New Follower. Love this idea...adding it to my to-do list :)
