Earring and Ring Organizer {D.I.Y}

Have you ever felt a lil stressed because your room/house is a bit messy? It happens to me all the time, and it has been my situation for the last couple of weeks. My room has been looking a bit frazzled, which in turn makes me frazzled. 
I don't know where to start so I just leave it, and it gets even more messy, then I give up. Well I finally got started. First it was my desk. I threw away so many papers and junk that was just making space. Wheew. I felt a bit better. 
But then I looked at my jewelry space, and it was crazy. I tell you something, I love jewelry, rings, necklaces, earring, even those "Basketball Wives" hoop earrings that feel like they weigh 5 pounds, yep I have a couple of those. Well all my jewelry is everywhere. Sometimes I can't even find my anything. 
So I got to Pinterest. And found so many things!! D.I.Y Jewelry Organizers
But I was inspired by one particular Jewelry Box over at Tina Phan. I love the colors that she chose, and her earring collection is to die for. :) 
Here is my take on Tina's Jewelry Organizer Box. 
-Wooden Box (found mine at Joann's for $2.99 w/a 40% off coupon. Reg price $4.99)
- Acrylic Paint (also found at JoAnn's)
- Felt (I used 2 sheets of it, but it will depend according to the size of your box)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Piece of cardboard (optional)
- Your Earrings and Rings
Everything in my room is white, grey, or black, with my accent color being yellow. So I decided to paint my box white. For the outside I did two coats of my white acrylic paint. I think 3 coats would've been perfect but I was too excited to finish. 
On the inside I painted the top part yellow, to give it a pop of color. Which I loved. One coat of the yellow was enough. 
I cut strips of the felt, about 1 1/2 to 2 inch strips. With my hot glue gun I added a strip of glue at the top part of the felt strips and rolled them up. 
I used a piece of cardboard to match the size of the inside of the box, and glued the flet rolls on top of it. You really don't need the cardboard, if you don't use it just glue the felt rolls to each other, applying the glue towards the bottom of the rolls, so that you can have enough space to insert your earrings/rings. 
Insert your rolls to the box and add your jewelry. 

Next will be my necklace display. And does anyone know what I can do with my nail polishes? :) 

Linking up today with Craft Frenzy Friday.
