Clutter Control: Jeweling the Walls

August 20, 2009

I have finally found an efficient and beautiful way to store my jewelry. It’s not only Jane-proof (I have a penchant for losing things), it’s also dust-proof and cat-proof! (My cats would love playing with my baubles if I stored them in any of those pretty little jewelry bowls or hanging on jewelry trees.)

 
As you can see in the photo, I picked up a few shadow boxes, hung them on the wall, and pinned my neckaces to the foam backing. My earrings and rings are stored in a pretty wooden jewelry box on my desk (thanks, mom).
Things I learned:
  1. Never pay full price for frames and photo mats at Michael’s. There’s a sale every few weeks for 40% off.
  2. After hanging the boxes with their respective hooks, I felt they needed more stabilization. I slipped a few of those wall-safe sticky strips from the Command Adhesive Wall Hooks behind each corner of each box, then pressed each box to the wall to ensure it had good hold. They haven’t budged since!

And here’s an “after” shot of my bedroom, with the jewelry boxes on the wall next to the large mirror.

    Those necklace shadowboxes rock. I ended up hanging all mine on little hooks in my closet. What we go through to make it all fit. We have a house, and I wouldn't say storage is limited, but it's at a premium. (Renting for a while is always such a great idea – you really learn to use a space)
