Ok so don’t judge me and the disaster that was my jewelry stand. I wish I was a neat person, but as you can very well see, it is a struggle.
This jewelry armoire, while a great idea in theory, wasn’t exactly functional for my needs. Like the doors that wouldn’t even close because of my long necklaces. I had been wanting to do something different for a while but wasn’t sure where to start.
Then I saw this 3-drawer chest during our trip to IKEA and for only $34, I knew I could do something with it! I loved that it was unfinished so I could stain or paint it whatever color I wanted. Plus the extra storage for things like undergarments and socks and such was definitely needed!
The next item that I found was the bird cage (similar to this one) at Kohl’s. It’s actually designed to hold notes and pictures, but my husband had the brilliant idea to use it for my necklaces. I used hooks very similar to these to hang the necklaces on the cage.
I already had the silver dish and the small dish that is holding my wedding rings was something we found on our honeymoon, so it’s got some sentimental value. I found the white dish and the knobs at Anthropology (the knobs were ON SALE too— I only paid about $2-$3 per knob! Definitely a great find since they were normally $10+ each)!!!
The earring tree came from Target. It really holds a LOT of earrings!
Even though it may not look like it, I got rid of a TON of jewelry during this whole project too. It felt so good to purge of items I didn’t need or wear very often, and get down to the items I would utilize.
So honest opinion, what do you think of my jewelry re-do? I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts!
