Modified the original plan a bit.

- Instead of using a wire door I used a board instead to give it a more closed look.
- Attached a mirror to the inside of the door
- Attached lots of hooks on the top piece of wood to hang more necklaces
- added a magnetic catch at the bottom and a rubber stopper at the top to ensure the door closes evenly and holds
- attached to dry wall with 4 toggle bolts

Wow, did you ever do a great job on this project. The tea stain looks good!

I'm actually building one for my wife right now, but was stuck on how I wanted to design the door. Your design is very cool. Can I ask what you used for the back and door...is is just wainscoating? And what did you apply to support the mirror on the inside of the door?

Thanks in advance!

I am glad you like my design :-)

To support the mirror I used a combination of mirror tape

and adhesive

As for the the back and the door, to be honest I don't remember the name of the board. I think I got it at home depot or maybe lowes. It came unstained and it was pretty thin. I cut it down to size for both. Sorry I can't be more help there. I did just check the home depot and lowes websites and couldn't find the exact panel. I am sure if you go and show them a picture they will be able to find it. The panel was around $15.

Let me know if you have any other questions!! Post a link here to yours when you are done, I would love to see it.

Excellent feedback, thank you! I found some small sheets of wainscoating at Lowes for around $10, and it's more than enough to do the job.

I'm heading to Home Depot after work today to pick up these other items so I can finish out this project. I figured if I delay long enough it will make a great Valentine's Day present.....

I'll be sure to post pics once completed. Thanks again!

This looks beautiful! What did you use to add the "handcrafted by" personalization on your project? That is a very nice addition. Great job!
