Whether it's my grandmother's vintage pearls, a string of beads from a thrift store, gold bangle bracelets I bought online, or earrings my sister brought me from the middle east- I love all jewelry and can't seem to get enough.
For years though, my love of jewelry posed a real problem. Despite my best efforts to keep things neat and tidy, my jewelry lived in a state of complete and utter chaos. I couldn't ever find what I was looking for and it refused to stay in one place- jewelry was strewn about in the closet, on shelves, in drawers, on the bathroom counter, etc). The clutter was ridiculous.
Then several years ago my parents gave me a jewelry armoire for Christmas and it fixed all of my problems! Thanks to this little piece of furniture, I now live a very sane life. I am convinced that every jewelry loving/collecting girl should have one of these puppies.
Here's why I love (and can't live without) my jewelry armoire:
1. Everything is in ONE place!
2. Love the hooks, drawers, cubbies and built in organizers- it's a disorganized person's dream!
3. It has TONS of storage space.
4. My jewelry is protected. (Necklaces don't get tangled together and I don't lose things anymore!)
5. In addition to holding jewelry, it also functions as a beautiful, sturdy piece of furniture.
And now, just to show you how organized your world will be with a jewelry armoire, I took a few photos. Obviously this wasn't staged or I would have straightened things up a bit. (But I guess that's the point- it works for disorganized people like myself!)
Exhibit A) Two swinging doors featuring strong hooks for long necklaces.
Exhibit B) A hinged lid opens up to rows and rows of ring dividers and another compartment for bigger jewelry items.
Exhibit C) A drawer boasts perfect little cubbies for earrings and other small jewelry.
Exhibit D) Another drawer is divided into four big compartments for larger pieces of jewelry.
Exhibit E) And here's a very deep drawer where anything goes (there are 3 drawers like this).
Don't you need one of these?!
