DIY Jewelry Storage

I'm back with another storage solution for your jewelry, specifically, the necklaces.  I don't know about you, but for me, if I can't see my necklaces at a glance, I'm much less likely to wear them.  I had a behind-the-closet-door storage system that worked really well . . . pre-baby.  Now, one of my son's favorite things is to pull the necklaces he can reach off the wall.  So, I needed to get them higher.


I wasn't sure if my idea was going to work, so I didn't photograph it step-by-step, but all I did was apply my pretty paper to a piece of foam board and attach pushpins at the top to hang the necklaces on.  (The pins actually poke through to the other side- you could obviously use a cork board too, but so far, my pins are staying strong).


WalMart had a really cute selection of push pins in different sizes and colors (hot and pale pink, light and dark aqua).  I chose the shiny silver here.  



Now I can see my most favorite necklaces right where I get ready in the morning. 


Since I had a shelf handy, I added my watches and some bracelets too (contained in bowls from Anthropologie).

Also, over on my friend Chassity's blog (Look, Linger, Love) she is sharing a sale of artwork created personally by Sally King Benedict.  Visit Look, Linger, Love to order:)

Had to laugh at your trio of watches...I have THE SAME THREE! I thought I had a problem....lol....I also have the light fixture you have in your closet, in my dining room.....I swear, I'm not copying you....it's just a coincidence!!!

  5. This is just what I need for my accessories. I like being able to see them otherwise I feel like they get hidden, and I forget what I have. Couldn't help but notice that I have the same gold and white watches--I like your style :)

  28. This is a great idea for toddler hands! My daughter is all about mommy's things, especially shoes and jewelry and purses. She can just about reach the top of the dresser now. Danger zone!
    The paper is really pretty!!
