I Can See My Bathroom Counter Again!

This week I FINALLY attacked my jewelry organization problem. I've been meaning to do this for awhile but I actually DID it this week. I think it's because the Hubs started talking about wanting to "take out the bathroom cabinets and just put in a pedestal sink" because "it just creates clutter"

I have NO idea what he could be talking about.

We agreed that this was crazy talk and we needed the cabinets/counter top, but just in case he had an hour to himself in the house alone and the necklace pile was too much for him to bear, I got to work on a solution.

  • 4 Cork Tiles - Walmart/Target $5-$7 (I like this option because you can use as many as you need and put them where ever you want, totally customizable)
  • Fabric - at least 28" x 28", mine was just a remnant I picked up at Joanns for $2 :)
  • Push Pins - Dollar Tree $1
  • Rockstar - Optional but helpful
  • Hot Glue Gun/Glue
1. These cork tiles are 12x12 so I cut my fabric at 14x14.

2. Hot glue onto cork and press fabric down onto hot glue.

3. Do all 4 sides.

4. Nail them to the wall, one in each corner.

5. Put up as many as you want/need.

6. Then I separated my stuff into 3 categories - bracelets, necklaces, and earrings/clips.

7. Use push pins to hang jewelry on the cork :) and you're DONE BABY!

Look how NICE and ORGANIZED that looks!!

I even found a spot to pin my flip flop flower clips from dollar tree ;)

I even found stuff I had forgotten I had! I am LOVING it! And it took like NO time to make it and was pretty cheap too :) Cheap & Easy are 2 of my favorite words ;)

Linking up to these AWESOME parties, check em out!

Awesome! I myself just recently decided to finally organize my jewelry, too! Isn't it amazing how much more jewelry you wear when you can see it all hung up?

I'd love for you to stop by and perhaps check out my jewelry organization.
