Finally! Jewellery Storage!

I have been looking for a way to store my Jewellery all year. I’ve bought some nice items to hang it on, I’ve used a mug holder (good for bracelets), I’ve rolled it up in cloth (pillowcases, actually!) I just have TOO MUCH! It’s not good jewellery, I can fit that in a jewellery box that I had  as a gift. It’s the costume, junky stuff I was having trouble with. I have looked at every option avaiable, and checked out ideas online – nothing worked for me really.

Until…in work, I noticed there was a used CD cabinet that had been sitting around for a while.

I asked whose it was and whether it was needed, was told I could take it.
I originally thought I would pull off the stuck-on CD holder sides and use small hooks inside to hang necklaces on. However, that wouldn’t allow for much room and it would be awkward fitting other types of jewellery on.  Also, I knew I would be changing the colour as there is nothing black in my room, it’s all very white/cream/ivory.

When I actually started to test it out, I decided the CD holder sides would be good to place small shelves into for freestanding items, such as nail polish. I used a wooden pole I found, cut it roughly into the right size pieces and placed these between the holders also, so it was a good way to keep them in place.

Nail polish on cardboard shelves(will be wooden one day maybe, if I can be bothered),
hair accessories in boxes (these will be painted or covered soon)

Bracelets, rings, and necklaces on poles.

Chunky bracelets and hair bobbles on ‘ahem’ toilet roll tube
(covered in magazine page and then PVA glue over it to harden)

I then bought some sample pots of paint, so have covered it roughly for now, but will see what I want to do soon, obviously this is a bit of a rough job, but I’m okay with that. For now, I quite like it. It’s a little more shabby than chic, but I’m glad I have somewhere to display everything, and can easily get to it, no more tangled up necklaces or rooting around. Oh, also, in case you didn’t notice, it spins!

And that’s it! The bottles on top – one will have a flower in, the other I have been placing bracelets on top of when I’m being lazy, as well as onto the actual jewellery holder. They’re tidy-ish until I put them back away properly.

Any other ideas on jewellery storage? I’ve looked at a lot, but I’d be interested to know some simple, yet effective ways and see what anyone else has tried.
Earrings are still a minor problem – one thing I’ve done is use a canvas picture to stick them into, but I don’t really want any more showing in my room – it’s already cluttered.

I posted this here as have read and scoured countless blogs for ideas, so thought I would share mine.

Thanks for reading and looking!
