Could it be a Jewelry Holder?

Repurposing something old to hold my necklaces is what I was after when I found this old vent. I love the chippy paint and thought it just might be the perfect idea!

It has a great bottom that helps hold it upright – which I thought would be perfect!

However, when I began hanging my necklaces on them & realized that this idea may not be quite right – due to the length of these necklaces…& these are the shorter sized ones!

 

 

So I decided to hang my bracelets on it instead! – loving it!!!

I don’t have any “real jewelry” it’s just fun to have all my, guess you could say “Costume jewels” displayed in a pretty way!

I’m loving this little section of my closet makeover!  I love using the vintage tiered stand to hold my “bobbles” and the vintage tray for perfume! ooh la la To see what I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie

I love that! What a cool way to make use of it. That's what makes treasure hunting fun... figuring out a new use for an old thing. Wishing you a terrific new year, Tracie!

What a great idea. I so love things that are used outside of the box.

Very clever, Tracie. It looks great as your jewelery holder. I've been looking for one to replace a newer vent in my bathroom.

Very cute idea Tracy. I too just have costume jewelry. Would much rather have a piece of furniture than a diamond. lol! Sure looks cute with your bracelets.

Very cute idea. I really love the tiered stand, I'll have to keep on the lookout for one of those. It would be perfect for earrings.

I chuckled! My house was built in the early fifties and has some of these old vents, although with just a horizontal pattern rather than your pretty one.

I would have never thought of that idea, but WOW it looks great. I agree, you are so clever.

Very clever. A very unique jewelry holder.

I have an old heating grate and I was thinking of making it into a pot rack.

Great repurposing idea.

i have that same tiered stand! I keep buttons and trinkets and such in it at my craft desk so I can whip out some jewelry when I have a spare moment. Your project is so cute - LOVE when you can put old things to new use! I'm having my first ever linky right now & would love for you to come join in the fun now & every Tuesday! xoxo
