DIY Jewelry Storage

I’m back with another storage solution for your jewelry, specifically, the necklaces.  I don’t know about you, but for me, if I can’t see my necklaces at a glance, I’m much less likely to wear them.  I had a behind-the-closet-door storage system that worked really well . . . pre-baby.  Now, one of my son’s favorite things is to pull the necklaces he can reach off the wall.  So, I needed to get them higher.

I wasn’t sure if my idea was going to work, so I didn’t photograph it step-by-step, but all I did was apply my pretty paper to a piece of foam board and attach pushpins at the top to hang the necklaces on.  (The pins actually poke through to the other side- you could obviously use a cork board too, but so far, my pins are staying strong).

WalMart had a really cute selection of push pins in different sizes and colors (hot and pale pink, light and dark aqua).  I chose the shiny silver here.  

Now I can see my most favorite necklaces right where I get ready in the morning. 

Since I had a shelf handy, I added my watches and some bracelets too (contained in bowls from Anthropologie).

Also, over on my friend Chassity’s blog (Look, Linger, Love) she is sharing a sale of artwork created personally by Sally King Benedict.  Visit Look, Linger, Love to order:)

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. I have complete closet envy! I'm redoing our much smaller walk in closet soon, will have to consider this…..I LOVE the trays and bowls you have out. Had to laugh at your trio of watches…I have THE SAME THREE! I thought I had a problem….lol….I also have the light fixture you have in your closet, in my dining room…..I swear, I'm not copying you….it's just a coincidence!!!

  2. This is just what I need for my accessories. I like being able to see them otherwise I feel like they get hidden, and I forget what I have. Couldn't help but notice that I have the same gold and white watches–I like your style 🙂


  3. Everything is so perfectly organized – it looks lovely! You've definitely inspired me to start a new project!

  4. Cute idea and I couldn't help but notice the Anthroplogie bowls – aren't they the best? They "doll up" everything!

  5. That looks so fabulous Megan. All of my jewelry is just laying around, I must zhush it up a bit!

    Thanks so much for sharing Sally's art 🙂

  6. Megan you are a genius! I must do this. I can't tell you how many times I have caught Sterling playing with my jewelry. What kind of paper did you use and where did you find it? I might tackle this project this weekend!

  7. It looks beautiful, Megan, and I am inspired by your organization. My jewelry is kind of all over the place in drawers. You've got fun pieces!

  8. This is a great idea for toddler hands! My daughter is all about mommy's things, especially shoes and jewelry and purses. She can just about reach the top of the dresser now. Danger zone!
    The paper is really pretty!!
