IKEA jewelry display cabinet

re-purposing a glass cabinet
Mine has glass sides and shows off necklaces perfectly
We purchased a GREVBÄCK glass-door cabinet from IKEA about six years ago to display my son's Lego collection.  Well, fast forward to 2011, and the Lego's are out, and we have ourselves  cabinet without a purpose, until...I was inspired by watching one of the Real House Wives shows.  One of the  "wives" had all her necklaces and costume jewelry hung on cup hooks in her closet area.  I took that idea and incorporated it into the six foot tall IKEA cabinet.  Now I can see all my necklaces at once, and they don't get tangled.  It's quick and easy to find what I am looking for. 



I think it would look better painted a fun color.  What  do you think?
Ciao!  Fabiana
