Working on My New Display!

 
I found this excellent box a few weeks back at one of my favorite vintage stores, Room Service. It was a complete fluke because I only stopped in because I had 10 minutes to kill before a meeting. I perused most of the store and was about to leave empty-handed, when I spotted this gem right by the door. I can't believe I walked past it twice before noticing it. Sad. Anyway, I knew it had to come home with me.

As I was carrying it to the counter I realized it would have to be transformed into a mobile jewelry display rack. It's been sitting in a corner all this time waiting for me to think through the design. It would be easy enough to drill a bunch of holes and mod it that way, but I didn't want to alter it any more than necessary. It's a pretty cool box and who knows, maybe 2 years from now I'll come up with some even higher and better use all it's vintage steely-ness. If it's got a bunch of holes in it, it may be ruined for that higher purpose.

After a bit of mulling it over and even more sleeping on it, I think I came up with a pretty elegant, simple solution. I'll post it once it's all finished.
