Condiment Server Turned Jewelry Organizer

When I came across this vintage wooden condiment server at a local thrift store I knew that I MUST repurpose it! The cups were a great size, the base was very steady and it just screamed organization. So I took it home and stared at it. When I noticed three of my bangle bracelets laying on the kitchen table, I knew.

I am currently in the process of transforming (hopefully) a spare room in our house into a dressing room. It has been a slow process. Anyway, I had a piece of fabric that I loved with hues of greens and black that I planned on using in said dressing room. So there was the color scheme for the transformation project.

Here’s what the server looked like when I purchased it:

A few quick zaps from the spray paint cans (the cups took about 3 coats due to them being smooth metal)…and this is what it looks like today!

I must admit….I’m in love with it. I also thought it would be a great item to have on hand when doing projects like bead work. Or to store some scrapbooking stampers in, or to hold plastic cutlery during picnics. Wherever it lands in my world, I’m so glad that I spent the $1.00 to bring it home.

Side note: Don’t you just love this little ring? 🙂

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.
