And when it came to finding a good way to hang my necklaces (instead of leaving them to get all tangled in the box) I tried to find a cheap option at Home Depot. The formal jewelry organizer either took up valuable countertop space, which is at a premium in our tiny little love nest, or cost several hundred dollars. A painted 2x4 with hooks on it cost about $15. I found a baggie of tiny c-cups for less than $2 and headed home.
An unused picture frame, leftover fabric, and a silver permanent marker (to take those c-cups from nasty bronze to shiny silver) and a movie later, I give you:
Is it perfect? Naw. But it's perfect for me and my needs (and my wallet).
