I’ve been doing jewelry box makeovers for over 11 years now and there’s no end in sight! My goal? Save every old jewelry box and jewelry cabinet from the landfill. And I know many of you are joining me in my quest. I know that because many of you ask for advice on finishes and where to buy jewelry box hinges and other hardware. So today, I’m sharing where I buy mine locally and some great online resources, also.
D. Lawless Hardware provided me with free samples to show you in the video below.

Jewelry Box Hinges & Hardware
Hobby Lobby has been the best local source for me to find jewelry box hinges and handles for jewelry cabinets. Watch for sales! Hobby Lobby doesn’t have their famous 40% off coupons anymore but they do have LOTS of sales. I never pay full price for anything there… unless it’s an emergency. (Yes, I have craft emergencies!)
We had another local store in California, called Beverly’s. Unfortunately, they went out of business. I bought Darice hardware there but since then Darice has been sold to Michaels. So make sure you check your local Michaels stores. (We don’t have one anywhere near us.)
You can still find this Darice hardware online… keep scrolling to find out how.
Also, whenever I replace any old hardware on a jewelry cabinet with new, I save the old hardware to reuse on future DIY projects.
Jewelry Box Hardware Online
Y’all know I love shopping on Amazon. They don’t have a huge selection but I did find a few of the Darice hinges and tiny screws shown in the photo above there.
I saved the best for last! The absolute BEST place online that I found to get jewelry box hardware is D. Lawless Hardware.

Thanks you very much for the recommendation! Just now saw this, made my day! I’ll share around soon!
lol… sorry, I thought I had shared it with you. I’m easily distracted!
Thanks for the great info and sharing your amazing jewelry boxes!
Can you suggest somewhere to purchase plastic chain/necklace carousels?
I just saw one in the Rockler catalog: http://www.rockler.com/solid-brass-chain-carousel

I am probably not looking in the right place, but do you show how to replace the lining in the drawers of jewelry boxes? Some of the boxes I see at thrift stores are quite stinky. Thank you!
Hi, Cinda, I haven’t done a video on replacing the lining yet. I’ve painted over the fabric, decoupaged paper or fabric over it, or pulled out the lining and decoupaged, also. Different every time!
Just started following you, thanks for sharing your talents.
Do you have information about paints and finishes too? Thanks.
Yes! I have LOTS of info about thrift store makeovers. You can search my blog or sign up for my newsletter. You may want to start here: https://ducttapeanddenim.com/diy-jewelry-box-makeovers/ Let me know if there’s anything specific you want to know… maybe I can direct you to the information you need.
Thanks for offering assistance. Many of the drawers have pulls which are easily removed because the screws are in the front. When you replace hardware with rear screws do drill through the drawers & countersink the screws?
I don’t find those very often but yes, if you find one (or want to add hardware with rear screws) you can drill all the way through the drawer and countersink the screws on the back.

Places like Hobby Lobby also carry dollhouse supplies; they often have tiny hinges for dh doors or roof hinges. My local Restore has some hinges, castors, and small hardware stuff–depending on when you go. I am always on the lookout at yard sales and thrift stores, too!
The only replacement necklace carousels I can find are very expensive. Looking for where to find the cheap plastic carousels. They tend to break when removed and are very difficult to remove and put back on. Any recommendation for an inexpensive replacement for these items. Can’t find them anywhere!
Unfortunately, I haven’t found any inexpensive ones either! I’ll post them in this article if I do.
http://www.ansaldi.com also has some small ring and pull hardware! Just found that source today.
Thanks for sharing… I’ll check them out.
