As I told you all in a previous post I have been getting into organization lately. Since it is raining- yet again- I decided to find a project to occupy another afternoon indoors. As I was sitting in my bedroom, I glanced over at my built in book cases and realized that my jewelry collection needed a double dose of organization! My necklace collection needed an immediate upgrade. So I headed over to Pinterest straightaway to see what unique things I could do to display my necklaces because my current storage method was atrocious! I came across some awesome ideas. Here are a few that I really liked:
All of these were marvelous ideas but I was definitely not going to head out in the rain to try and track down these items. So I went on a treasure hunt in my home to see what I could use to store my necklaces. I found 2 tie holders and a iron candle holder that was no longer being used due to the fact the glass pieces broke during our last move. So I took those items and transformed them into necklace holders. Here is a picture of how I was originally storing my necklaces:
And here is a picture of how I attached the candle holder and neck tie holders to the wall. I used cup hooks to attach-probably not the best idea but they worked! I was using what I had available!
Decided to turn the candle holder on an angle to make the display a little more visually appealing. After I got the holders attached I just started adding the necklaces until I got the desired look!
And of course I couldn’t just stop there! I had to organize all of the jewelry. So I headed back out on another treasure hunt and found two candle sticks that I decided to use as bracelet holders. I already had my bangles stored in a serving platter that was not in use.
So after the organization frenzy, I ended up with a cute little accessories corner. I know I know I have a truckload of accessories. In my mind you can never have too much especially since I also make some of my jewelry! This was an effective little way to get my things displayed so I know exactly what I have. Here is the finished product.
I am satisfied with the results for now. I’m sure I will want to change it up a bit in the future. The best part is this little project cost me $0! How awesome is that? I think my hubby was surprised to see my little corner because when he came home he said “everyday I come home to something different! That’s pretty cool though.” I think as long as he doesn’t come home to a wife with purple hair and a nose ring he is content LOL!
