I'm slowly, but surely, redecorating our bedroom. There are a ton of things I want to do around the house, but I find it most important to start with the bedroom. It's my favorite room. It's our space. It should be beautiful and relaxing - and it's well on it's way!
One of the things on my list was to organize my jewelry! We have a beautiful bedroom set and all of my jewelry and things were just scattered across my long dresser. Something had to be done.
That was just part of it. It was pretty much a nightmare every time I wanted to find something. I needed a simple way to organize my jewelry. So this is what I came up with...
I bought three little wooden boxes at a local store for about $2. They had some super weird designs on them, so I painted over it with some acrylic paints so they match the rest of our bedroom - blues, tans, whites, and accents of yellow. They work perfectly. The top one holds my rings, the middle one holds bracelets, and the bottom one holds stud earrings and other miscellaneous things.
And then there were the necklaces. Oh, the necklaces! For these, I took two wooden frames and spray painted them white. Then I bought some screw hooks and, with the help of my lovely husband, screwed them into the top of the frame. Ta-da! It doubles as some pretty neat "wall art", as well. I made two of those for my necklaces.
Then I made a small one for all my fancy dangling earrings, which I don't own too many of. So the small one was just perfect. I strung two pieces of twine across the frame and my husband nailed them in for me.
And now I have a pretty cute little jewelry corner! I might do a couple things to spruce up the frames, but I'm not sure yet. I'll keep you posted.
Next up I'm re-working a lamp for my bedside table. Things are coming along in our bedroom and I'm getting pretty excited about it!
