Remember that little “Mom’s Visit To-Do List” I created not too long ago? Well here’s creation #1 from that list!
My jewelry storage situation was a nightmare. I am organized in many aspects of my life but when it comes to accessories, not so much.
I rarely even think about putting on a bracelet or a necklace mostly because I don’t want to spend time picking through/untying/untangling.
It was time for this to change. After seeing this project on the blog Adorable Antics I set out to make one of my own.
Step 1: Go to Dollar Store
That’s right! The best kind of project is a CHEAP project. The expandable hooks I used came from the closet section of our local Dollar Tree. I bought two of them for a buck a piece.
(*Note: make sure you go to Dollar TREE where everything is actually $1. Don’t be fooled by places like Dollar General…things cost more there).
Step 2: Choose Location
Our bathroom closet is nice and deep so I knew that I wanted to hang the racks on the wall right inside. That way they would be easily accessible but not out in plain sight.
Step 3: Choose Height and Angle
I have quite a few long necklaces so I chose to hang the racks at a slight angle so they would not be dangling on top of one another. Once I got the right positioning I used the screws provided and attached the racks to the wall.
Step 4: Hang Jewelry
I organized necklaces into short and long sizes. The short ones went on the top rack with the longer ones designated to the bottom.
Now when I open the closet door I have a nice display that easily allows me to see what I own. Imagine that.
Even better: it only cost me $2.
I’ll have you know I had a very diligent supervisor during this project:
I want to know…
Do you wear jewelry often? If so what kind?
Do you have any jewelry with sentimental value?
Where do you buy most of your jewelry?
I always always wear earrings. I feel naked without them. Mostly just small pearls or silver studs. The necklaces you see in the pictures above came from my year-long stint as a Premier Designs Consultant. Lately, any jewelry I buy (which in general is rare) comes from Target. As far as sentimental? I have a necklace with a small silver pyramid attached that Z gave me before leaving for Egypt. I was wearing it when he proposed.
