Jewelry Organization

So, up until now I've had the really classy jewelry organization system shown below.

Great huh?
Understandable how I forget I even have accessories.

Well, I decided this past weekend to remedy the situation.

So, I picked up some chicken wire from the hardware store...

...and this handy staple gun...
(can you believe I've lived without one of these so long?  neither can I.  especially as it was only 8.87)

...and stapled the wire to an extra frame I had lying around...

Perfect fit, it was meant to be.  I only had to trim two sides.

...I just clipped with my wire cutters...

...and then rolled over the sharp edges so they wouldn't scratch things...

ta da

I hung it in the closet.
The idea being that I can see everything as I'm getting dressed, and maybe it will remind me and I can actually use the things I have.

I forgot to get "s" hooks from Home Depot.

No biggie, I made my own out of wire that held the roll of chicken wire together.
Cost: Nothing

So Fun.

What do you think?

That is such a GREAT idea! Thanks for sharing! I have the same problem and don't wear or remember half the stuff I have. I am going to do this!
