Just Hangin' Around

The other day when I went into my costume jewelery drawer to accessorize an outfit, I was appalled. All my necklaces had somehow interlaced and become one large mass of stringy, claspy, beady horror. What is a neat freak to do in a situation like this? Organize, that's what!

I immediately formulated a plan and set out for my local Canadian Tire in search of 3M hooks. Armed with 12 of these babies, I got busy setting up the inside of my armoire door. Here is the fab result. Now it's easy to see all the necklaces and in the morning when I'm in a hurry and need a bit of neck enhancement, finding the perfect piece is simple. Pretty darn good, if I say so myself! As you can see, Simon is understandably amazed with my jewelery organizing skills.

The best part is that the armoire door was not harmed in the making of this jewelry display, as the hooks are completely removable.

Now, THAT is a great idea! I'd like to know how you store your nail polish. I need a way to organize them.

Great idea, I could use it too as my necklaces seem to know when I am in a hurry (they interlace even more on those mornings). But what is a girl to do when 1/her doors are sliding doors, 2/ she is owned by two cats who would love to play with hanging necklaces :-)

Also my necklaces are a horrible giant tangle! I think I'll copy your solution. It's much more practical and fast then the one I had in my mind (and that I've been postponing and postponing for ages)

I believe Simon is saying... "That's all well and good, but where are my hooks for my bone organization going to go now!?"

Now that's a great idea! I have an armoire door that will work for this too!

Yea you! Way to beat down the necklace tangling beast. Simon looks a bit worried that his toys and leashes will be too far away for you to reach now. g

Smart, and Simon looks as cute as ever.

OMG, I thought I was the only one doing that... I have TONS of necklaces... Last year I came up with this same idea and now my closet looks like a jewelry store display!
