Over the past couple decades, my lovely bride of over 30 years has collected a fair amount of jewelry and it doesn’t quite fit into the jewelry box I built for her in the early 80’s. We talked it over and decided to put up some shaker pins that would let her hang a lot of it and leave the small items in the jewelry box. So we trundled off to Lowe’s only to discover they were out of shaker pins and weren’t sure when they would get any in.
Well one thing led to another and I decided what the heck, I will just build her another one. I looked around in our bedroom and the only place I could find to put a new jewelry box was on top of the built in vanity leading to the master bath. However, it turns out that the top of the vanity is only eight inches wide and that just didn’t seem like a very stable platform. From that discovery, came “The Jewelry Box” or as my wife calls it “Jewelry Furniture”.
