DIY on Design*Sponge

VOTING CLOSES ON WEDNESDAY MARCH 19TH, SO GET THE HECK OVER THERE AND VOTE RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ; )


I have news that I'm so excited to share! Design*Sponge (one of my favorite blogs) is hosting a DIY (do it yourself) contest and I'm one of the finalists! Grace received 500 entries, and I was lucky enough to be picked for the top 20. I was inspired by this George Nelson jewelry case, but at $1400, it was not really a sane option for my life. So I fashioned this little number using some components from Ikea, and with the help of Mike Giles from Furni (and the use of his shop) I was able to do a nice pro job on the staining, sanding and varnishing (oh, the varnishing....). I then lined the inside with some vintage wrapping paper and cream coloured felt and filled it with my ridiculous amounts of jewelry. Now all I need is your votes....



So go check out the contest, and if you feel like voting for me that is super awesome, but if you like someone elses piece better that's OK and I will consider forgiving you... there are some REALLY great entries!
