House of Jewels

I have been needing a place to store all of my jewelry for quite some time. I have tried many ways to organize my collection of earrings, bracelets and necklaces but they usually end up in all sorts of places...hat boxes, dresser drawers, jewelry bags and even hanging from candle sconces in my bedroom. Really, they end up everywhere.
I finally came across a really nice (and really expensive) jewelry armoire while I was scouring the internet. It took awhile to find a comparable piece that would fit my space and my budget and match our bedroom furnitureas well. It arrived last week and I spent a few hours organizing my jewelry and then placing all the pieces in their new home.

The top shelf opens and has a mirror on the inside. Here is where I placed my rings and jeweled bracelets.

The next two drawers are also set up with little dividers and I filled them up with delicate necklaces, brooches and watches.

Next up are my cuff bracelets, beaded bracelets and beaded necklaces. These last three drawers are open without compartments so there is plenty of room to add more! 

On each side of the armoire is a door that has eight hooks for necklaces. Here I separated the gold from the silver. These are mainly ones that are too delicate to be in the drawers.

As you can see, this armoire didn't have enough storage space to fit my arsenal of earrings so those are still in another jewelry box. Eventually I would need a bigger jewelry armoire but it does the job in the meantime.

Now my candle sconces can go back to just holding candles. ;)
