I have been pootling around on Pinterest again, this time I have been looking for ideas for storing my necklaces and I when I found this I was inspired.
We have tongue and groove on the walls in our bedroom and so the little ledge running around the top was just ideal for making this little project come to life. I bought some upholstery pins from Ebay and knocked them in at one inch intervals.
I now have all my necklaces hanging across the width of the chimney breast, in colour order as I'm a bit manic about that kind of thing, plus there are a few empty pins at the end so room for plenty more.
As well as trying to store my necklaces in a better way I also did a search on options for bracelet and bangle storage, which led me to buy this bud vase in a charity shop yesterday for £1.00
and so a selection of my pink, purple and red bracelets now have a new home. I need to keep my eyes peeled now for more suitable vases for the rest of my collection.
To be honest I enjoy the searching for suitable pieces just as much as i enjoy looking at the finished and tidier result.
