A Quick (& Inexpensive) Fix

Quick and inexpensive? Yes please.

My scarves and necklaces are sort of thrown in a few spots in our bedroom. The scarves more than the necklaces, but I've been thinking about getting something to have them all hang in one spot.

(We have a serious lack of closet space in our home so we need to maximize every inch we can when it comes to storage. That means that large closets are on the top of my wish list for our next home.)

We were browsing a community yard sale a few weeks ago, and I spied a wicker wall organizer that I thought could work for my accessories. I asked the person running the table how much they wanted for it, and he said $1.00. SOLD.

Of course my husband asked what it was when he saw it. And of course I kindly responded what it was, how much it was, and where I intended on using it. I still don't think he got it.




Much better. And it brings me such satisfaction to have everything in one spot that I can see easily.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

  1. Organized and it adds a little color too, almost like art.

  2. Great fix! My Scarves are thrown into a basket, and my necklaces... well, let's move on to the next subject ;-) We're having a great Sunday, and though the sun isn't high, it is out there somewhere behind the clouds. The main thing is it's dry out there! :-)

  4. Like it! It looks great esp. under your piece of art hanging on the wall. I was just thinking about how to store scarves the other day when I saw a ladder leaned up against a wall in a closet used to hang scarves. Thought that was really unique too!!

  5. It looks great, Holly! I love the shape of it - something different - and that you did not change it in anyway. A great organization tool which you will enjoy having and it was a steal!

  7. That looks great! I actually really like it -- it's way more interesting than the normal plastic wall organizers. And, keeping maximizing space + keeping things organized is worth way more than $1! Good find :)

  12. I think it looks great and I love that you have it next to a mirror. Perfect for adding that last touch when getting dressed. You can't beat the price either!

  14. Great idea. Must be so much easier (and definitely prettier) to have your things in plain sight all the time!
