jewelry storage and display racks

two useful ideas if you have lots of accessories and want a way to organise them ikea style.

nora’s chain display
nora was searching for a practical storage and display solution for her self-made earrings and necklaces and turned to ikea. here’s what she did.

“what you’ll need:

  • one bekvam spice rack
  • three fixerad knobs (can’t find link)
  • one meter of chain (about 2 euros at hardware store)
  • some drawing pins
  • brown acrylic paint

1 2 3 4

first i painted all the pieces brown and let them dry. then i made three holes in the front bar with a drill and fixed the knobs on it. after putting everything together i separated the chain into two pieces of different lengths and attached them on the front and the sides of the rack with drawing pins. then i used some more drawing pins for decoration.

i spent less then ten euros for this rack and as a plus i can use the otherwise useless space on the flagstones.”

cheryl’s jewelry rail
“i’m using the enetri shelving with this item (if you can see- i had to modify that piece of furniture since it didn’t fit my stereo system, there are lifters on the shelves).
2 (1) 1 (1) 3 (1)

what i did was take the dignitet curtain wire system and add the curtain hooks (i cannot find them on the website but they are similar to the ones in deka system.) which yeah, this seems pretty normal but i didn’t use it for curtains. i used it to unknot the massive blob of costume jewelry i own. as you can see they are all hung up neatly and separated from one another.”

    Well done! Agh, that works much better than my dental floss solution. I’m also a fan of mini earring trees. Maybe you could make one out of kitchen forks for me! ;)
