Bathroom medicine cabinet becomes a jewelry showcase!

My friend Michelle owns a wholesale flower shop, Weber's Wholesale Market ( where she sells beautiful flowers and some jewelry to the trade. Recently she asked if I'd like to sell my jewelry at her shop and of course I jumped at the idea! But how was I going to showcase my product? I looked at all the usual, boring jewelry displays and decided to come up with something of my own. My husband and I trekked off to the ReBuilding Center with baby in tow. We happened upon an old medicine cabinet that used to have a mirror in it and was made from 80's style oak. It was $5. Perfect! We took it home and started dissecting it. Out came the mirror which has since been replaced with acrylic. The body has been painted my favorite colors, electric blue with metallic copper highlights. I repurposed an old belt-cut it apart and screwed it into the top for a handle and lined the bottom of the inside with foam liner from a craft store. Now I have a beautiful display case for my custom jewelry all for under $15!
