{jewelry can do more than make you look pretty.}

Jewelry is eye candy- it sparkles, it’s delicate, it’s pretty. Who says they could only be admired when worn?

Since a friend asked me for a solution regarding the tangled pile of jewelry she has in a drawer, I thought I’d show what I did at home and a few other ways jewelry could double as décor while being easy to keep organized and handy.


I use a jewelry stand, cupcake holder, glass box, & IKEA’s Noresund to stash my stuff.

    These are all very creative they are like funtional art and jewlery at the same time thanks for the ideas

    I have one of these really cool jewelry stand. Mine is in the shape of a corset. It is all black wire and it holds so much! I bought mine about 4 years ago at a TJ Maxx for under $20. I love that thing! Its perfect for those messy gals (like moi :D). Just through it on top or hoop it in. Definitely a good item to own.

  3. I must say, I like this idea a lot. It’s way cheaper than buying you jewelery boxes and looks nicer too. :-)

    LOVE every single idea. Especially the cupcake stand, I have one that quite honestly I never use, so I’m excited to have another use for it. Your so creative, can’t wait to try more of your suggestions. Keep the posts coming! I always thought it would be impossible for me to have an artsy looking room, but your ideas I feel I can honestly do. thanks!

    • I’m glad you found a way to repurpose your cupcake stand. I hate having things that aren’t in use and still take up space so I just hold on to it for a little while until I find a need it could fill.

      It’s really not difficult to have a room you love. The hardest part is getting the idea, thankfully there are a lot of good ideas out there in magazines & sites for us!
