It all started with this empty corner in my bedroom, and my overwhelming, over-filled jewelry boxes.
My hubby, being the sweet guy that he is, went out and bought me this adorable jewelry hanger, but it doesn't work well for longer, heavier pieces of jewelry, which I have tons of (bummer).
I've been wanting to create some kind of jewelry organization for quite a while now, but for some reason I've been putting it off.
So my quest to create it began with something I saw on pinterest, which was originally from Martha Stewart . She used cup hooks, a wooden dowel and s-hooks to hang jewelry inside of a cabinet or closet door.
Isn't it great?
Unfortunately I have bi-fold doors on my closet so that wouldn't work. But, I adapted the idea---of course--using what I had on hand!
I took a cafe rod and hung it as if I were hanging it on a window, accept I didn't extend it, so that it would be strong enough to hold the weight of the jewelry that I placed on it.
Excellent! Loved it!
Except . . .what do I do with all of my earrings now?
Then I thought about adding cup hooks to the shelf above my necklace display rod. Then a light bulb went off---Eye hooks!
I slightly hammered the eye hooks into the shelf, about an inch apart and then simply screwed them in.
Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking about!
My little corner is almost complete!
Still need to fill those frames though!
Now I can easily choose my jewelry in the morning and match items up. Organization makes me sooo very happy! I think I might actually add another cafe rod below and move the necklaces to that rod and keep the top rod for bracelets. And as I acquire more earrings, I can simply add more hooks!
I might also add a small bowl to the shelf to hold my rings and stud style earrings.
How do you organize your jewelry?
