DIY files; ring tray 1.31.11
January 31, 2011 § Leave a comment
Armed with a surplus of crystals, rocks and rings. Thanks mostly to my mother, who lives in Taos and is an avid rock hound; I was able to complete the look I wanted to store my rings. I started with a trip to Michaels, and then a stop at ross. I can always find weird storage items at ross for very cheap (this tray was around $4), and the sand i used is about $2 at Michael’s. I brought this tray home and painted it with the same black satin krylon paint i used for my earring holder. I filled the newly painted tray with the same white sand i used in the vase; then added a dried flower and some of the aformentioned flair given to me by my mother (including an antler tip she gave me for good luck).
This is a simple, cheap and beautiful way to be able to see all my rings and quickly choose my accessories without taking up too much space.
