I am sure you have all seen this in 100 hundred variations already, but I am very pleased with my jewelry organizer. I have seen jewelry organizers like this all over blogland, I wouldn’t know where to begin to backlink, or identify any one specific source of inspiration because there were so many. But I really liked the potential of adding a bit more organization to my house, so I decided to see what variation I could come up with myself.
I really needed a bit of order in this department. Often I didn’t wear any jewelry at all, just because I couldn’t be bothered to go rummaging through my big mess of tangled up necklaces while I was hurrying to get myself ready in the morning .
It was a simple project involving an old frame I painted white and gave a bit of glaze to bring out the details, an old burlap coffee sack and some hooks.
If you like this post you will like my DIY Key Organizer too. It is personalized, pretty and super functional.
I decided to hang the frame in a little corner in my dressing area.
My Love’s study doubles as our closet room too. As you can see here a large bookcase functions as a room divider. On the other side of the bookcase is my Love’s desk.
This way I have a little corridor with my closet on one side and the back of the bookcase on the other. I call this spot ‘my walk-in closet’ 😉
With the addition of a little shelf (thrifted at my in-laws), a mirror (ready bought from a discount store) and a previously revamped chair I now have the perfect little corner with a girly touch. Completely hidden from My Love’s sight when he is at his desk so he won’t feel I am invading his space too much.
Two little bowls hold my rings and earrings.
I love my little corner with the girly white ornate frames combined with the rugged look of the printed burlap. And the addition of the shelf (with additional hooks) and the mirror really makes this a handy set-up.
So I am thanking all of you creative people out there who inspired this project and who knows, maybe I will have inspired the next jewelry organizer in blogland. If I did, let me know 🙂
