Jewelry Storage for Small Homes
There’s nothing worse than a single lost earring. If you love to accessorize, you know the struggles of storing, organizing, detangling, and finding your jewelry when you’re ready to wear it. Plus, when you have a small apartment, it is difficult to maintain an awesome wardrobe and collection of accessories without feeling like your apartment is constantly cluttered. Here are a few ways to maximize your necklace, earrings, and other jewelry storage, so you can keep accessorizing to your heart’s desire.
DIY Earring Organizer
Create your own organizer with a little DIY magic. Get some plastic mesh canvas or a pegboard with holes the proper size to hang earrings. With the right kind of spray paint, you can easily customize it to match your decor. Here’s a list of paints that work well with plastic.
Plus, it’s easy to attach to a wall or inside a closet with little damage. Use a few command hooks and use the existing holes in the mesh or pegboard to hang the organizer wherever you desire.
