Jewelry Organization: Upgrade

Happy 2013! I know I’m a few weeks late, but better late than never, right?

I have to say I really missed you during my little really long break, but I thoroughly enjoyed the extra time to enjoy Christmas and then recover. With that, I’m back now and like just about everyone around the blogging world I have something on my mind: ORGANIZATION.

I have more problem areas than I would like to admit but one of the biggest is always my closet. I tackled this last year and while it was a start, it didn’t stick. Last week I spent some serious time cleaning out every little nook and cranny, reorganizing, and clearing out the clutter. That part is really not much to show you (meaning the “before” is way too bad and the “after” is much improved for me but probably looks like some of your befores); however, so far it is really working. It’s like having a new wardrobe to be able to see everything (i.e. not dig through it on the floor) and I even found some shoes I forgot I had. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Now, the part of my closet I do want to share with you is my jewelry organization system. Last year, I made huge strides toward my goal with my zero budget-get it done in a day project but it just wasn’t exactly what I wanted. I HATE that this is one of my most frequent pins (repin the update, PLEASE!) It has served it’s purpose, but I’m over the burlap. It’s so 2012 ;)

Jewelry Before

I bought cutlery trays for this purpose forever ago and they have been sitting in the garage ever since. Long story short, I had white spray paint and a free Saturday so I did it! But wait, there’s more! The frame approach actually worked so I just updated that with, you guessed it- more white spray paint! So, want to see it?

To be honest with you, this was a very easy project BUT there are so many little pieces to it that I will share with you later this week but for now, let’s just enjoy it and talk about what I love…

  • There is room to grow and I’m still adding hooks and jewelry pieces.
  • It’s clean, white and just pretty.
  • Why not style it up? I channeled my inner Emily Henderson with the little brass camels #whimsyJewelry Organization

So much better than the old done in a hurry version. This is exactly why I always think you have to continue to evaluate your organizational systems. Sometimes they may be totally wrong and sometimes they may just need a little upgrade- like my jewelry. What about you- do you have a perfect plan in place for your jewelry or do you need an upgrade? What’s working for you? jewelry organization

  5. I love your jewelry organizer. I am making one that is somewhat similar but vertical instead. I really like the center piece with the 4 cubicles and was wondering where did you get it from? I been looking for something like that, that’s the same depth as my trays.

  6. I love this idea! The 4 square “cubbies” in the middle where you have your saying propped up against, what is that and where did you get it? I am going to get frames and cutlery organizers from Bed Bath and Beyond to spray paint tomorrow and the hooks and pins too. I’m excited. Thank you for sharing.

    • Hi Mary! Thanks so much for stopping by! The little cubbies in the top are also bamboo drawer organizers that I picked up at TJ maxx. Good luck with your project! I know it till turn out great!!
