#trashouttuesday / September Storage Solutions Week 2: A DIY Jewelry Wall in Your Closet

Last week on #trashouttuesday we started a new theme for the month of September – all about storage solutions for your home!

September Storage Solutions: Week 2 – A DIY Jewelry Wall for Your Closet

I actually came up with this idea years ago when we first moved into our home. I convinced Brian to put up a peg board that we bought at Lowe’s. Then, we bought the hangers like they have in stores – it was like my very own Jewelry store!!

But….here’s how it has looked PRETTY MUCH the entire time I’ve had the peg board:

That’s terrible!! And Brian reminds me ALL the time about how I said, “Oh, if you build me a storage wall then I’ll keep my jewelry organized…”

Bhahahahahah!! Well.

Tonight I decided to tackle that big pile of STUFF and make this DIY jewelry wall usable again.

Once I got the area cleaned off, I decided to add several elements that I think will help me use the counter top more and keep the clutter from collecting again.

First, I found this cheap photo frame for $2.50 in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby several months ago. The back is about to fall apart, but that doesn’t matter if you put it on a photo stand!

Plus, the photo stand in this area can double as a holder for some of your jewelry. You can hang some of the pieces you wear most on the hooks – see the earrings at the top??

I also decided to add these cork board “pot holders” I found for a few bucks at IKEA!

It came in a pack of 3, but I decided to just use 1 for now.

I added 1 nail and put it on the side of the closet (I really only added one because Brian wasn’t thrilled that I was adding nails to the side of the closet wall hahah).

It’s perfect for earrings!

I also added a couple of pretty bowls to collect my random clutter, watches, etc. I wear cheap watches, so I like to have my collection πŸ™‚

Also, did you know you could buy earring backs at Claire’s??? Genius. Especially for people like me that lose the backs all the time!

I added this cute little dish that my Aunt brought me back from IRAQ earlier this year. Yes, I did say IRAQ!!!

I have other earrings that I don’t wear as often that I keep in my dresser drawer. I organize those earrings in ice cube trays!!

My favorite piece in my closet is a ring holder we found at my grandmother’s house last summer!
