... I can't remember the number of times I've known that I have a certain necklace or a pair of earrings but I just can't place where they are.
Or even when I have looked at a magazine article and thought 'I have something similar to that' but I don't know where it is.
So, with a need to organise and to over come this. I decided it would be a great idea if I could see my jewels, not least because I actually like looking at them.
So armed with some short 1 inch brass pins and a hammer I set to task on the bathroom walls... (I don't know why the bathroom walls!)
I can actually say as DIY projects go - I loved this one!
I found hidden gems - jewels I forgot I'd ever owned. Some pieces, I remembered I had but actually were so much more fabulous in reality.
So the upsides are...
Everything is so easy to see,
I don't really think I'll ever 'need' to buy another necklace,
The walls look so much more interesting and dare I say it (in a house full of boys) prettier.
And the down side...
... I'm not so sure if anyone will ever want to re-paint the walls...
