Jewelry Frame

Posted on Apr 27, 2012 in DIY, Organization | 0 comments

Here’s another idea that has been a while in the making. I have desperately wanted a better way to store my jewelry, especially my earrings. In the past they have sat in a small bowl on my bathroom sink which was functional to a point but not at all aesthetically pleasing. So I took inspiration from a earring holder my mother made me years ago that used a free standing photo frame and window screen. Since then I have amassed way more jewelry so I knew it had to be bigger… much bigger. I also knew I wanted it hung on the wall since counters are way easier to keep clean when they are clear of clutter. So I came up with this…

With the help of my hubby, I took a wooden frame from Michael’s and attached screen to the back. Since the back would need to be accessed for earrings that have posts I came up with the idea of mounting it with hinges.

So it can open like this…

It pretty much turned out exactly how I envisioned and I love the combination of form and function. I’m such a visual person it’s nice to have my choices all laid out before my eyes. There’s also quite enough room in the holder so that I can add to my collection. I think in the near future I will add some small cup hooks here and there so I can hand necklaces and bracelets as well.

So this is what I get to look at every day when picking out my accessories. Way better than a dish full of jewelry if I do say so myself…
