Jewelry Storage Solutions

Jewelry boxes are beautiful and are great for storing a few small things, but I’ve yet to find one that has enough room to house most of my jewelry so that I can actually see it at a glance.   In an effort to utilize all the space in my closet (and in former tiny closets too) I’ve turned to the back of the door as a spot for hanging necklaces. 

INSIDE DOOR

All you need is a door

Letters, Necklaces 006

and some 3M Command mini hooks.  I used one per necklace but they are strong enough to hold more than one necklace, especially if it is lightweight.

Letters, Necklaces 007 

They are super easy to use (simply peel and stick) and supposed to come off clean without damaging the surface. 

Letters, Necklaces 011

I started by placing the hooks on the back of the door in a line without being too obsessed about the line being straight.  Then I filled in the “holes” with more hooks until all of my necklaces had their own little “home”.

This helps me so much when I’m getting dressed and can actually see what I have.  (Not that I’m wearing many necklaces these days with James pulling on everything!)  I do have to be a little careful opening and closing the door (it mostly stays open) because the necklaces will swing out and hit the door if you close it too hard.

DRESSER

The top drawer of my dresser houses smaller accessories, like rings and bracelets.  They are arranged by color in these compartment dividers from Bed, Bath, & Beyond.

p.s. the drawers are lined with this wrapping paper from The Container Store.

Letters, Necklaces 026

I like to keep a few favorite pieces on top of my dresser where I can see them.  Putting them in pretty bowls or containers makes it extra special.  The small silver bowls and tray are from West Elm.

Do you like your accessories where you can see them or do you prefer them hidden away?

  1. I love what you did here! My large necklaces are on push pins near my dresser, but that's because I don't have nearly as many as you (I'm loving your collection!). I like the combination of hidden & displayed. Your bracelets are beautiful & I love the silver bowl & tray for display. Great job with the display :)

  2. What a great idea! My daughter's would love it too...they have tons of chunky beaded necklaces that are too bulky for normal jewelry holders. Currently mine is in the top drawer of my dresser in jewelry trays from the Container Store, but this would make the necklaces a lot more accessible.

  3. Ahhh . . . Love it. I made a picture frame necklace organizer that was posted on my site in February and it is like art to me. Your idea is great too. I think thought that the fabulous turquoise beaded necklace deserves a place higher on the door. It is my favorite color.

  8. Crazy! I have found your blog at the perfect time! I have so much jewelry and have been struggling trying to find a place to house it. Currently, the top of our dresser is covered and making me nuts! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  11. Gorgeous, Megan!!! This gives me some great ideas for my new closet. :)

  12. I'm like you...if I don't see my jewellery I almost forget that I have it. I like it out in the open, and have been using belt racks to organize my necklaces on the closet wall. I like what you did with your door...it all looks so pretty and probably inspires you to wear pieces you haven't touched in a while. I love the idea of displaying favourite pieces in bowls....beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration....my jewellery could stand some reorganization!

  16. I loved this post. I am a jewelry junkie. I don't have much "good" jewelry other than my watch and my wedding rings but I have way too much costume jewelry. I just love it what can I say and apparently so do you. :) Nice stuff by the way. :P
    I would be flattered if you would consider sharing this post on my first linky party ever. I think this is something a lot of readers would enjoy.

  24. I recently pulled all my jewelry from boxes and got them hung up in framed fabric boards. I LOVE that I can see everything all at once now. I did a mini tutorial if you're interested. The post is called Framed Jewelry Boards on my blog Rindy Mae. :o)
