Hi friends, I'm so excited to be here today because, the month of May at 'The Organised You' is going to be wardrobe month, where I'll be sharing lots of ideas, tips and tricks for getting your wardrobe and clothes sorted! I've got ideas for organising scarves, belts, kids' accessories and clothes, as well as the essentials for keeping your wardrobe organised.
Today I'm here to talk about jewellery display and storage ideas. I don't have a big collection by any means, but I do like to keep it organised and on display to encourage me to wear it more often. I think when I had my babies, I stopped wearing jewellery, especially earrings, as they were always pulling on it when I was feeding or we were playing. Now that they're not babies anymore (sob!), it might be time to start getting back into the jewellery-wearing.
I got this simple jewellery display rack from ebay a year ago, and it is perfect for my earring and necklace collection. Next to it is my perfume collection, and a wooden jewellery box from Ishka - a gift a few years back.
This all sits atop our slimline dresser, which is just to the right of our walk-in wardrobe. The idea being that I can easily match jewellery to the outfit... on the rare occasion that I wear it!
The left side of the display rack can hold up to 24 pairs of earrings.
While the right has 10 hooks for necklaces or bracelets. The rack is only 30cm long so it is not suited for really long necklaces, but works perfectly for the ones I own.
The wooden box holds chunky bracelets in the bottom drawer, and beaded ones in the top two drawers.
I always take my jewellery off at night, I just find sleeping with rings on uncomfortable. Are you a jewellery sleeper? I keep my rings, watch and necklace in the console drawer in the Wedgewood box on the right. It was a gift from my beautiful cousin (who was also my bridesmaid) on my wedding day, so it is very special.
As long as my jewellery is organised, I'm a happy girl, but if I had a bit more space - or a bigger collection - here are some ideas I've been coveting for a while. I especially love the gorgeous wooden-tray-turned-jewellery-display at BHG.
