Necklace & Bracelet Storage

I love wearing necklaces. I have recently been stocking up on them because they are so fun. They can add some much to a simple outfit. I have always had a place to put my necklaces, but they were hidden away in a cabinet in the bathroom so I would forget to wear them. After I painted my vanity I wanted to add some fun storage for my necklaces so that I could actually see them.

I decided to put up some hooks on one side of my vanity mirror. Since I had such a skinny place to put them  (the bathroom door swings open right here) I decided that two rows of small hooks was my best option. I spaced them out using a short necklace as a guide for my top row and a large necklace for the bottom row.
I found these hooks on amazon so I bought two of them for just under $20. I enlisted my husband to hang both the hooks and the mirror for me as well. We hung the mirror using wire across the back and a nail with a picture holder for the wire. For the hooks, we used a dry wall anchor and a screw.
So far I love it and I never forget to put a necklace on. Plus it makes it super easy to put them away at the end of the night as well. This is so much more convenient than my old system. And an added bonus is that it makes the space look pretty.
I also needed to find a storage solution for the few bracelets that I have. Luckily, as we were walking through Ikea I found a skinny little vase that I could put them all on. Not bad for less than a dollar!

This was the perfect solution and I am loving it so far!

  1. I love your idea of storing jewelry out in plain sight. I tend to forget about the jewelry I have when I just pack it away.
