Organizing Jewelry

This past weekend I decided I needed to get more organized with my jewelry, since I use our guest bedroom as an extra closet and dressing room. I still want everything to look pretty and presentable if we have a guest! And it needs to be easy to grab and use on a day to day basis. Here is how I decided to organize and display everything...

-I took a pretty plate we never eat on (Orla Kiely for Target) and laid out all of my watches on top of the dresser for easy access.
- A mirror (Ikea) sits in the corner where I draped a few beaded necklaces and a trinket from traveling over it. It is easily accessible if I need to use it but there is another (larger) mirror nearby.
- The heart shaped box (Urban Outfitters) actually has 3 seperate compartments where I have organized earrings, bracelets, and miscellaneous. It doesn't take up much room, but holds a lot! 

- That ceramic hand (Urban Outfitters) is one of my favorite ways to display fun cocktail rings! 
- The polka dot bowl (Fish & Eddy) houses all of the bracelets I wear on a day to day basis. Not to mention, I love the bowls so much I wont eat out of them so this works perfectly to display them as well!
- The small box was bought in Prague and holds sentimental brooches and charms that I want to keep safely tucked away!

- Bigger bangles, necklaces, and sunglasses are organized in this pretty tray (John Dorian for Target) that I also set out on the dresser or can be hidden away in a drawer if we need more space.

- This vintage jewelry box actually used to belong to my sister when she was in high school. It has lots of drawers for keeping everything organized and hidden and two glass doors that house some more favorite necklaces on hooks. It spins so it is perfect to hold anything and everything! One drawer even has all the spare buttons that come attached to clothes.
- I keep my 2 fedoras right on top in case the mood strikes to wear one!

- Tackle boxes are perfect and airtight for storing the rest of my baubles out of the way while still being organized. These are affordable (around $5 and these are from Kmart in the sporting good section) and come in all different sizes!

- The dividers come loose so you can adjust the size of the space that you may need. Everything stays untangled and dust free and these slip perfectly under the guest bed or in a dresser drawer! I have been using these for years and everything stays put... they are perfect for jewelry storage!

  5. I LOVE tackle boxes! I use mine for all my buttons. Color organization! I like the idea of putting my jewelry in them. Oh and get this... me and my love challenged each other last christmas and had a budget and we couldn't make a list. Anyway... he bought me a little mini jewelry armoire. He was tired of seeing my jewelry everywhere. Sadly... its not big enough so my jewelry is still everywhere. The good thing is that it forced me to get rid of a bunch!

  8. I love how you organized! When we moved a couple years ago, I found myself with an extra over-the-door hanger, and now I use that on my closet door to hang necklaces on.

  16. These are great ideas for organizing jewelry! I feel inspired, as my collection is out of hand. I especially like the second photo, tray with dividers for bracelets (duh) and the bead/craft box in the last photo is so simple. Thanks for sharing!
