Organize Your Accessories

One of my favorite sections in the blog Adventures in Renovating a Brooklyn Limestone, is the section called "Steal This Idea". Part of why we read design blogs is to get inspiration for our own homes, projects, cooking, etc, right? (Well, at least that's why I read them anyway.)

A while back I was visiting my good friend Brittany from "For The Love of Gold" and she had the best DIY solution for organizing her jewelry hanging in her room. Needless to say, I went home and stole that idea! It's a super simple idea really, yet so functional and totally easy to do.

All you need is a cork board and some thumb tacks and you're on your way to an accessory organizing solution that I think you'll love.

Check it out:
You can hang earrings, necklaces and even bracelets on the thumb tacks and they stay organized in pairs and don't get tangled up the way they do in the typical jewelry boxes you find in stores. Plus it's kind of a cool way to create a little vanity area in your bedroom and have your accessories out on display.

I hung mine above my dresser, added a small mirror, candle and grandma's jewelry box for rings, watches and post earrings. The whole project cost me less than $20!

What do you think?

(Oh, and BTW, if you  aren't already reading the two blogs I mentioned above, you should be! Check them out.)
