Every evening, when I get ready for bed, the first thing to go is my jewelry. Any necklaces, bracelets, rings I have on are taken off before I dive into my skincare routine. This usually means piling it all on the bathroom counter where my tiny catchall earring dish sits (and overflows), or stringing all of necklaces on my cabinet knobs below my sink. To no surprise, this looks chaotic and messy – which is exactly the opposite view you want right before you go to bed. But the most obnoxious part of this was the clanging of my necklaces as I opened and closed my bathroom cabinets. It had to go.
I searched the internet and found some beautiful jewelry organizing options.
In an attempt to keep my counters clear from clutter and keep my sanity, I narrowed down my search for the perfect hanging jewelry organizer. I wanted something sleek, simple, and practical.
I loved the look of this jewelry hanger, but it’s no longer available on Etsy.
I came across a few other options but none of them really fit what I was looking for.
Enter the winner!
When it finally came in (it originally came with the mirror broken, so I had to return and reorder), I sat on it for a while before deciding where and how I wanted to hang it.
Something that helps me decide what I want to do with my walls is taking a photo of the wall and literally doodling where I might place things. None of it is proportionate but it’s a quick way for me to know whether an idea might work or not. Here’s what I mean:
Once I figured out where and how I wanted to hang it, I laid everything out on the floor and started taking measurements.
Since there are wires behind the drywall leading to the outlet on the other side of the wall, I decided to use monkey/gorilla hooks for this project. These hanging hooks are a lifesaver for a quick fix and gave me peace of mind that I wouldn’t need to drill.
Now that it’s all hung and in place, I’m so happy with how it turned out! I also love how close it is to my sink – that way I know I’ll use it and not resort back to tossing jewelry on the counter.
