Finished jewelry armoire -- love my JB!
Doors made from neighbors old window shutters (had cloth in the openings) and roof flashing from another roofing project pounded with a hammer and distressed with black paint.  The necklaces are hung up by cheap little plate racks screwed to the back. Rings are inserted into black velvet covered insulation board.
Here is the pounded roof flashing distressed with black paint inserted into the shutters where the cloth had been.     (Picture stayed sideways!! IDK!!)
The drawer is made out tongue & groove board -- this is where I put anything that doesnt hang.  The divided compartment is from a recycled jewelry box and my post earrings are poked into a velvet covered insulation foam board.
This is the ring organizer and where I hang earrings that can be hung.  The earring are hung on copper wiring that was pulled from an old piece of electrical wire.  (Again picture stayed sideways!!)

Our neighbors know of our junk turned beautiful projects and offer us anything before they throw it out.  My JB made me this jewelry armoire from boards that once was a garage wall, roof flashing, interior hinged shutters from lower half of windows, tongue & groove boards, plate holders, recycled jewelry box, insulation foam board, black velvet dress, copper wiring from old electric cord, little thread holders.  I think that might be about it!  Oh yes, the stain was even donated!

Since I'm a jewelry designing,this was fun for me to view.
Thanks for sharing with all of us.
