So, it's a New Year and it's time to get ORGANIZED!
I don't know about all of you, but I've definitely been hit by the organizing bug this month! I've been working on a few different projects over the last couple of weeks and I must say, it feels SO GOOD to get rid of the clutter & bring some order to our home! I still have more areas that I'm wanting to tackle, but I WILL get there!
We are kicking off our "Organize It" week this week as part of our Dog Days of Winter Series, so I had to pick one of my projects to share with you today! Here it is.....
If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you might remember that this time last year, I was working on one of my biggest organization projects to date.....a major closet overhaul in our master bedroom! I created some jewelry hangers at that time to hang some of my necklaces from.....
And they worked for a quite a long time, but then, I developed a new obsession for accessories & purchased quite a few new necklaces over the course of this past year! The two hangers just weren't cutting it anymore! The necklaces were too heavy & the chains were constantly getting tangled up. So, I knew it was time for a new solution!
I actually used my friend, Mandy's tutorial to create my new organizer. Be sure to check out her post HERE. Let's take a look at what you will need.
I got all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby with the exception of the fabric.....it came from JoAnn's. I got the frame (24x36) for 50% off & used my 40% coupon to purchase the cork roll. The cardboard came from the framing department. I just asked them if they could cut it to fit the frame for me.
I started by cutting the cork the same size as my cardboard.
I sprayed the backside of the cork & the cardboard with my spray adhesive and attached the two of them.
Then I wrapped the cork with my fabric & placed it in the frame. I made sure to pull the fabric tight on each side, so that there weren't any wrinkles, and then I trimmed off the excess.
Once I was finished, I just started hanging my necklaces using pushpins that I purchased at the dollar store.
These pictures give you a closer look at the fabric that I used. It's a small chevron pattern. I wanted a large pink chevron, but was unable to find it.
Here is what it looks like hanging up in my closet now.....
All of my necklaces fit perfectly & I still have room to add....PERFECT!!
You might have noticed that I had to get rid of my mirror in order to bring this into my closet. I have moved it into my master bathroom for the time being, but it doesn't match our current decor. Guess I'm gonna have to come up with something for that next!
So, that's it! A quick & easy solution to organizing your jewelry!
I hope you'll come back tomorrow & join in the organizing fun as we kick off our linky parties!!
