Necklace & Jewelry Organization

As the closet clean-out continued, next on the hit list was an array of jewelry I never wear.  Truthfully, I’m terrible at accessorizing, opting most days for diamond stud earrings or simple hoops, and James’ birthstone necklace or my favorite “j” necklace.  But, I’m hoping weeding through and giving away what I haven’t worn in forever and keeping everything else out in the open will encourage me to wear it more.  I think it’s working because I’ve worn three different necklaces this week.

I’ve got my necklaces hanging on a piece of foam board that I covered with decorative paper.  I used thumbtacks to hold the necklaces.  
Thumbtacks also hold some of my earrings. 
Little trays are perfect for keeping bracelets and watches. 
I’ve had the first jewelry board for awhile, but I just made this one, since I now have extra room with lots of clothes donated. 
Bowls from Anthropologie and West Elm hold bangles.  
I really like having everything were I can see it.  The decorative paper is from Paper Source.  The silver thumbtacks are from WalMart.

Meet Megan

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. This is a great idea and even better – it looks great too! My "real estate" for storing stuff is pretty limited at the moment, but this inspires me to try to think of a better way to keep my jewelry so that I actually see it, so I will wear it more!

  2. So gorgeous, girl. I have run out of room so I think I need to do something like this. I spy a familiar bracelet 😉 Have a great weekend.

  3. How lovely! The display looks so bright and fun. I need to do something like this for my jewelry — it's always getting tangled, and I hate not being able to see everything, all out in front of me! 🙂 Happy Friday!

  4. This is such a great way to organize jewelry. It looks so pretty Megan. Mine is in a couple drawers and I tend to reach for the same earrings, bracelet and necklace all the time. You've inspired me to find a place to organize like you have. It's fun to switch out what we're wearing. Love your jewelry….especially that turquoise beaded necklace and pretty wrapped bracelet. Enjoy your weekend!

  5. I keep all of my jewelry out on display in my closet too! It's not only easy to reach and nicely organized but it makes me closet feel pretty 😉 Love the foam board idea!
