I made a big mess...today I have been trying to transform some old boxes from the market into lovely velvet lined boxes of treasure, for displaying our jewellery.



I think this used to hold a silver napkin ring...


It was like this, but now its like...


this! The string is tied around whilst some glue dries, the box fell apart when i was lining it! I put in sections to hold two rings. The rings are mine by the way...


I found these ages ago, thought they would look nice hanging on the wall with ribbons. Good for displaying earrings maybe?


I put black velvet inside them, and they are slightly padded.


This box is covered with thin leather and opens from the top and the side, i think its a Gentleman's clothes brush case.


I lined it in grey cotton velvet for holding lots of rings.


They are mine, all mine!


I also lined the display case with black velvet, bit difficult to take a photo of it as its a bit dark in our living room!


I still have to do all these, maybe its a bigger job than I thought! I need a mug of tea fast!
