Don't Worry, I Have a Plan

This might be the ugliest thing I have ever posted on my blog...but not to worry, I will make it pretty very soon.

I literally woke up one morning having dreamed up 3 0r 4 projects that night. I don't know if I just think I came up with this stuff while I was sleeping, or if I saw it somewhere and then dreamed that I came up with it all by myself, but whatever...I wrote it all down in my moleskin immediately and have been determined to try and create them.

One idea is a jewelry cabinet to hold my bracelets and necklaces. I have a jewelry box that works well for earrings and rings, but my big bangles don't fit and necklaces tend to get tangled when I store them in there.

My thought was to take a small medicine cabinet and turn it into an organizer I could hang on the wall near my closet. I have been looking forever and finally found this one at a thrift store for $4. I plan to paint it, remove the glass and replace with board covered in fabric, then figure out the best way to arrange things on the inside.

I still might have to wait a few weeks to start this, but I'm so excited to see if I can turn my idea into something real. I'll hopefully have a much prettier version of this to show you soon : )

You are so ambitious. however, if you wait a few weeks to start this I'm afraid that you might find you have a baby and then you will have to wait a few months? years? But you may surprise me.

I can't wait to see the finished project! It really is so hard to find a beautiful and functional jewelry box out there.

Love this blog by the way!
