So I have an issue with my jewelry. I don’t have a ton of stuff, but what I do have, I don’t wear. Why you ask? Well I have most of my jewelry in a chest, some hanging on a stand, and some in a drawer in my dresser. I love to wear my earrings, but it’s such a pain to put it back in my jewelry chest that I end up just leaving it on my dresser, creating a big mess. Nothing is easily accessible. Once I actually get around to putting it all away, it’s more of a hassle to keep up with it so I end up not wearing anything at all.
|Sorry for the terrible before pic. Still trying to figure out how to take better pics with my camera.|
I’ve got two Malm 6 drawer chests (one for me and one for hubs). I also have another Malm 6 drawer chest, but with the mirrored top, that sits in between the two. The colors below aren’t the same, but in really life it’s closer to the mirrored top chest. The mirrored top opens up to hold anything from jewelry to lingerie to t shirts. The top two drawers are also really thin so it’s hard to store clothing in. I decided that I only wanted to use the mirrored top and the first drawer. The second drawer I use for storing sunglasses and other miscellaneous items.
I bought a ceramic egg crate from Marshall’s to hold my earrings, my favorite owl ring, and other little things.
I had a jewelry tray I also bought from Marshall’s a while ago that I use for some other bracelets, etc.
Now, my dresser top is clutter free. That’s Hubs’s catch-all tray. The mirror is now in the bathroom and the candles were moved into storage.
All of my leftover jewelry holders I end up putting in my yard sale box. Oh and all of the jewelry I got rid of is now in a pencil box.
Who else is organizing jewelry? Getting rid of anything? Of course not, I’m the only girl I know that actually wants to get rid of her precious gems .
