If your jewelry collection has outgrown the traditional jewelry box, then it’s time to consider investing in your very own jewelry armoire.
Vintage jewelry armoires, while beautiful, are notoriously a little heavy on the pocket so we’ve turned to everybody’s favorite affordable home ware store for a cheap alternative to house your growing jewelry collection.
Ikea’s purpose-built Malm 6-door chest (pictured above) may not be all that pretty to look at at first, but this functional (and affordable) piece of furniture is easily spruced up to create a luxe look for less. With the addition of some new pulls, this basic chest turns into a fabulous jewelry-holding dressing room feature.

The stark modern white Malm chest is given a vintage edge with the help of a series of Vintage Mercury Glass Cabinet Knobs – making this modern piece suitable for even the most classic of dressing rooms.

The brassy hue and scrolled design of Home Depot’s Liberty Traditional Bail transforms Ikea’s black-brown Malm Chest into a French-inspired dresser that will be right at home in a luxe boudoir.
With most drawer hardware only a couple of dollars and the chest just $179, this DIY project can easily be completed for a respectable $200.
