Make-Do Mondays with AnnI don’t have any fancy jewelry, so I don’t feel the need to have a fancy jewelry box. I’m making do with a repurposed box that held some decorative letters. The letters were on clearance at Target for practically nothing. (Shhh…don’t tell the Belgian Wonder, because I gave them to him as a gift.) The “l-o-v-e” letters came in a simple box made of very thin wood. I ended up using the box for my jewelry.When I bought it, one letter was in each of those sections. Underneath was nothing.I divvied up my rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets into those sections, and placed a watch, pins and other stuff in the generous space below.The box fits in the dresser drawer.I might paint it someday to add a little fun, but it’s fine for now just to have my few items contained and organized.How are you making do?
