Before I jump into today’s project I want to take a minute to say thank you for all the comments and well wishes from yesterday’s post! I’m feeling better, although I do still have a headache, thankfully it’s not as bad as it was 🙂
I’m in the midst of redecorating my master bathroom right now and am looking forward to sharing the finished product with you soon but it’s not quite done yet… Until then, I can share one of the projects that desperately needed to be tackled: creating a shutter jewelry organizer!
I have had the hardest time getting (and more importantly keeping!) my jewelry organized. I’ve tried a tabletop jewelry case, divided storage trays, shoe boxes, a hanger… you name it, I’ve probably tried it and none of it has had staying power. While this probably says more about my personality than the actual storage solutions, I still was in need of a jewelry organization system that would work AND blend well with my decor.
I was feeling tempted to dish out ‘the big bucks’ to get one of those tall standing jewelry cabinets that I’ve often admired but was reluctant to spend the money on that right now. And then, it hit me! What about that big shutter screen that I have? It’s just leaning against the wall – why not try that?! Well, a few Christmas ornament hooks later, all of my necklaces and bracelets are neat and tidy. Best of all, I can see what I have! Some of these treasures were buried in the jewelry pile for so long I had forgotten about them!
This is truly the simplest DIY organizational project I will likely ever stumble upon: Hook one end of necklace onto ornament hook and place other end of hook on edge of shutter and your done. So easy, right?! Shutters of any size will work for this project and you can normally buy old shutters for a song making this a very budget friendly DIY project! I think I have finally hit upon a storage system that will stick with me for quite a while to come.
I’m really excited that the weekend is here! My best friend and I are heading up to Lucketts tomorrow to see Miss Mustard Seed!! Not only am I super anxious to get an autographed copy of her brand-new book but she is also selling my Jennifer Carroll Designs notecards in her booth (she even blogged about it here!! Pinch me!!!). Even though I sent the cards to her, it doesn’t quite feel “real” to me yet so it will be very exciting to see them in her space in real life! I will try to take lots of photos of the festivities at Lucketts to share with you next week!
Until then, do you have a cool jewelry storage system? I’d love to hear about it! Please leave a comment below or hop on over to my facebook page and upload an image and tell me why it works so well for you!
