Mug Holder turned Jewelry Holder

created at: 05/24/2010

Stephie's behavior while browsing Good Will sounds very familiar. Case in point: as she was perusing the store's aisles recently, she spotted two mug holders and a lazy Susan and proceeded to stare at them, trying to think of something to turn them into. This is EXACTLY what I do. I often wonder if the people around me think I have some sort of disorder, staring intently a bit too long at random crap. Anyhoo,    the lightbulb popped on for Stephie as she figured her finds would make a great spinning jewelry holder for her dresser. In all, the entire project set her back a scant $2.50! You can read all about the project at madebystephie. Via.

So enthralling! The white coat of paint definitely completed the look of the holder.

Very nice and original indeed!This kind of jewelry might be a good idea for a gift. Either it expensive or cheap, a good gift will convey words as expression of your genuine attention. Think also about a nice watch because both men and women loves watch as expensive gift- it makes you have <a rel="follow" href="http://watchus.com/">charm</a> , style and class.

Too funny. I did the very same thing about a year ago. I didn't even know what the mug holder was, I just thought it would make a good jewelry hanger!
