antique teacups and plates jewelry drawer
I'm so happy about my new jewelry drawer.
This is a project I admired in the now no longer Blueprint magazine and have wanted to do for ages.
It is simply velvet fabric (or in this case a velvet blend) cut to fit the size of the drawer and the china pieces. It's hard to see here but the fabric is a deep eggplant shade- very pretty.
All of the antique teacups and plates were found over several years but 2 quite recently in a local shop.
I'm also planning at some point to assemble shadowboxes with jewelry that was part of the same story.
It is certainly nice to have one very pretty and organized drawer in my dresser. I love the romance of dressing up and taking care to spend the time choosing the accessories.
