I love jewelry. I love to wear it, buy it, and make it.
Most of my jewelry was stored in this armoire*. The rest was on my dresser. And it was kind of a disaster area.
*the furniture in my bedroom was a gift from my parents. the color inside was the color of the outside when we recieved it. we painted it "toasted marshmallow". click here for that post.
All the sudden, I wanted to clean it up. And organize it. And paint the inside of the doors with chalkboard paint.
In total, this project took about 1.5 hours. I purchased the mirror and the jewelry box specifically for this, but the rest of the items are things that I already had.
I look forward to opening these doors now. And I feel more creative since I can easily see all my jewels! It was also good to go through and look at what I own (colors, length, statement, etc) to see what holes I need to fill in my collection.
Oddly, I own a lot of green/blue statement necklaces but I don't wear a lot of that color. I supposed that is good since I won't be too "match-y". Also, I'm a big fan of gold these days, which I never thought I would wear. Now it's rare for me to wear silver.
How do you display/store your jewels?
