A place for everything…..
January 24, 2011
January is a great time for taking stock in our “stuff”. With the generous gift-giving season behind us – our closets, drawers, attics and basements continue to accumulate with it. There is nothing more refreshing than cleaning out and cleaning up.
So Girls: Does your jewelry box look like this?
Mine did and I decided there was no better time than the present to come up with some ideas for cleverly storing and displaying my favorite things on a budget (since my wallet still hurts)! I came up with several great solutions I wanted to share with you.
Take for instance this great hinged shadow box I found at WAL-MART in the craft isle! For less than $10 you can create a great display for necklaces and bracelets that you don’t want to get tangled up in a box.
With one pull you can open the door and have easy access!
A shallow drawer makes for a perfect way to store and easily see all your goodies. I lined this drawer with an inexpensive remnant piece of ultrasuede from 1502 Fabrics (for $5 a yard!)
The ultrasuede is a great backdrop – just like the jewelry cases at Simon Jewelers – one of our projects that landed the cover of ASID magazine!
And what about all those great rings you have? Girl, you need to get those out where they can be seen! Check out this silver “tree” from ROOST – rings hung from the branches look spectacular and can really dress up your closet or bedroom! This is more of an investment at $235 but for the statement it makes, you can put it anywhere for a lovely statement piece!
I would love to know how you store and display your jewelry – please share any ideas or comments you have! We look forward to hearing from you –
