From the sounds of it, most of you spent the 4th of July weekend at the beach or pool, barbequing and watching fireworks with family and friends. I’m a bit jealous. Not that we didn’t have a nice weekend (we did), but John and I live far from family and often miss out on the holiday traditions. Instead, I decided to finish up a small project I’ve been working on for jewelry storage. If you’re like me, then finding and detangling your jewelry is a daily annoyance. I’ve been looking for a jewelry storage solution for awhile but wasn’t interested in an armoire or something that would make my jewelry “disappear”. I wanted it to be able to display it in a neat but accessible form. Plus, I didn’t want to pay a bunch of $$ (but you know that’s a given). So one day while perusing Pinterest…Have you used Pinterest? It’s a visual way to display internet bookmarks, and I’m in love with it—you can follow me here! If you want an invite, just let me know! Anyway, I found this. It fit the bill and was easy-peasy to implement.
My original jewelry storage solution
So, a forlorn corner of my bedroom…
I added some trinket boxes that we had around the house (that I never knew what to do with), and voila! A place for necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings to be on display! I knew it was a keeper when husband commented, “I was skeptical at first, but I really like how this turned out.” Yup, we have a winner! I may swap out the picture for a mirror to make it fully functional, but it’s already been working great! So for all of you that grab jewelry as you run out the door, this is for YOU!
And for those of you who noticed the lint rollers in several photos…it’s true. We stock them everywhere. With 3 cats, they are a girl’s best friend.
