I hate to admit it, but I have a lot of rings. More than sixty. Which is a little absurd for only having ten fingers, naturally my need to store and display them was haunting me. I found this gem at Michael's craft store for $15.99, by using their almost always available 40% off coupon I grabbed this for $9.59 (before tax). It is a 60 spool holder, meant for storing thread for sewing.
Last year I did a similar DIY (which you can find here) that held sixteen rings.
Spool Rack $9.59 (Michael's Craft Store)- Used 40% off coupon, this particular rack has 60 posts and flip out legs.
Testor Spray Enamel "Glossy Black" $2.49 (Michael's Craft Store)- I chose "Glossy Black" for a professional store display look. Used 50% off coupon, check the link above for current coupons.
Crystazzi ss 12 flatback Crystals $2.50 (Michael's Craft Store)- I love the iridescent look these have
1. Read the directions on your spray paint and only use in a well ventilated and covered area.
Spray your spool rack every which way you can think of, this has so many nooks and crannies. Make sure you spray it when the legs are open, as shown, and look up down and all around for places to spray. Let it dry (per directions on can) and inspect completely for any missed spots before moving on.
2. For a finishing touch I added a ss 12 flat back crystal to each post. I used a dab of super glue to adhere each one permanently. Only took about 15-25 minutes for me to complete this step. These were just a little bit smaller than the post.
3. Arrange all of your rings so they are stored and easy to find.
(Also easy to see if anyone is borrowing!)
If you don't have quite as many rings you can also add some bracelets AND
a few necklaces too!

Tips & Suggestions:
There are many different finishes to paint (matte, glossy, metallic, etc...), the one you pick should compliment your rings and decor. I love the glossy one because it looks store bought.
White would be a beautiful color to choose if you have mostly gold jewelry.
Spray paint is the best way to go on this project, trust me! I've tried it with a paint brush and it took forever!
