My husband, the builder

I love my husband. He makes me laugh and puts up with me when most people would run away screaming, as if their asses were on fire and the need to find a lake was the only thought in their minds.

And although there were many things that I loved about him back when we first got married, I had no idea that he had a hidden talent: building things to make our life easier.

I posted pictures of the beds that he made for the kids here.
And I posted pictures of our renovation in our home here.

But a few days ago, he made something for me that I am in love with... lots of love.
I was in need of somewhere to put my earrings. Before, they were piled in a draw and they were always getting twisted and mangled. Also, it made it hard to take stock of what I have.

I searched Etsy and the net looking for something that I wanted and came away irritated. Have you seen what some people charge for a simple wall hanging jewelry holder? Ridiculous.

When I mentioned this to my husband, he got an idea.
And he sketched it out, measured my earrings and how many there were at the time.

This is the finished product:

He designed and built it while I did the sanding and staining since I did want to help.
He added hooks along the bottom so that I could hang my necklaces.
The space on the bottom row will be for rings, just as soon as he gets the supplies that he needs to fill it in.

I love it.
I can actually SEE what I have without having to paw through a drawer or untangle a huge mess of beads and metal.

And? I still have room for more earrings.  LOL.
