Ok, so I have a wonderful jewelry box, but it's overflowing with necklaces and often ended up like this:
I got really frustrated of constantly untangling them or wearing the same necklace over & over due to my impatience. I finally decided to make a jewelry rack for my longer necklaces and those that tangle easily. The rest of the necklaces will remain the jewelry box.
Requirements: cheap and using as many of the items I already have. I decided I wanted the rack on the back of my bathroom closet door, so the look of it didn't really matter since only I will see it. If the jewelry rack would be visible, I would've made it more aesthetically-pleasing. I also didn't want any nails or screws to come through to the other side of the door.
I liked how the drawer pulls on my cabinets/drawers (from Ikea) looked and wanted to use some as a jewelry rack but I knew the screws would show through the other side. What to do?
I got out a level, the handles, a hammer, and I had some mug hooks. These are tiny enough that they don't show through to the other side. I nailed (yes nailed, not screwed) in the hooks. I hung the handles on the hooks. I then hung S-hooks from Ikea on the handles. My jewelry hung from the purple S-hooks. Problem solved! Yes, the hooks are purple and don't match anything, but since I already had the hooks, and I'm the only one opening the door, it doesn't bother me.
I'm pleased with the way it turned out, and I like having it hidden, as opposed to hanging on the wall. My necklaces are gifts from loved ones, treasures of my travels, and memories from family. And that's the way I like it!
How do you hang your necklaces? Are they on display? Or hidden? What piece means the most to you?
