There's a thing I call "decorating on auto mode", and for me, what that means is that I see a space in my home that needs a solution, and I go out and buy the most convenient or cheapest thing I see to fill that space. And that's not always a bad thing. Easy can be good. Cheap can be awesome. BUT if you fill your whole home with stuff you like just OK, it's pretty impossible to love your space. And that's not cool.
With that said, today I'm excited to share ten random ideas for jewelry storage. Some of these items you might already have in your home. And like the ceramic giraffe in my space (above), these pieces can be even more interesting and fun than traditional jewelry storage.
You don't have to spend a lot to fill your home with interesting pieces that fit your personality! Let's pinky swear to no more auto mode shopping. OK—let's go!
1. Unique dishes! Like this Jonathan Adler horse tray. Search kitchen dishes, and you might be surprised by how many fun kitchen dishes you can repurpose for jewelry! 2. Glove forms! These make awesome displays for rings, necklaces and bracelets. I like to buy them on Etsy (vintage) and Fishs Eddy. 3. Brass Pineapples. These come in a pretty big variety of sizes and many of them open up for secret storage. You can find the best deals on eBay. Just search "brass pineapple" and try "brass cactus" too! 4. Marbled dishes. This inexpensive little beauty is from H&M. Did you know they have a lot of really great, inexpensive housewares online? Yep! 5. Dinosaurs and giraffes. Ceramic, plastic…whatever. Perfect bracelet holders! The one in my opening photo came from TJ Maxx. 6. Ceramic egg crates! This one is from Anthro. These are perfect for holding earrings and rings! 7. Hooks. I love this one especially. You can find cute hooks at every home decor store. They're perfect for hanging necklaces on your wall. 8. Mermaids! I love this Jonathan Adler piece. Perfect for draping necklaces or bracelets on. 9. Wall planters. The rhino and elephant are perfect for hanging a few favorite necklaces! 10. Brass elephants. Just do a quick eBay search and you'll find a ton for awesome prices. They're so pretty! Keep one by your bedside or makeup mirror!
