Now that you’ve created your own custom drawer organizers (last week’s post) you might be like me and have a plethora of wood organizers with no home….so sad… Not to worry, a little spray paint, hooks and you can re-purpose them to organize your necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
I still had lots of earrings that needed a home. I checked out the fancy clear organizers they had at Target (oh, Target, how I love thee…) but they were rather pricey. I stumbled over to the sporting good section and saw these — fish hook organizers — I think they are called tackle boxes…yes, my hubby confirms indeed they are. For a fraction of the price of the original organizers, I had just about the same thing — and these are customizable! You can make the compartments bigger or smaller instantly. (Another case of the Sporting Good section saves the day. I’ve opted for a $4 tackle case for makeup travel and for sewing organization. Gotta love thinking outside the box….or even close by the box….or is that even a box at all?)
Jewelry Boutique Display
I found two of these at the local Goodwill and I knew they needed to come home with me. One of them practically jumped in the cart — thanks to my 5 year old. I cleaned her up — I call her Jade — (the jewelry boutique display, not the 5 year old). I use Jade as a decoration and also a holder for the jewelry I plan to wear the next day (as I wear full jewelry every day — don’t you….aren’t you planning on sporting the pearls to vaccum later?!) Okay, so I only dress Jade when I have an event the next day that requires jewelry. I think she makes a nice addition to this jewelry station in my master closet.
