A Thoughtful Place: Jewelry Storage {Repurposing the Apothecary Jar}


Jewelry Storage {Repurposing the Apothecary Jar}

If you have been following me for a while than you may recall seeing my little jewelry area in my bedroom. It’s been really nice having it all in one organized spot. I showed much of it here. Well my darling sister, Kristin, hooked me up on Christmas with something I had spotted at West Elm when we were shopping together. Originally, I really wanted to use it in my bathroom as it is intended. But once I set it down on my little jewelry shelf, it wasn’t moving!


This cute piece is a stackable set of three jars. So if you were to use it in the bathroom you could fill it with cotton balls, q-tips, etc. Here I have some of my favorite necklaces and bracelets.




I can’t tell you how much I love this little baby. Here is why it makes me so happy:

It doesn’t take up much real estate

It holds a ton of jewelry

It keeps my pieces dust free

I can see what I have



And a shout out to my sweet mother in law who saw this post and sent me the darling cuff in the above photo.



My other favorite ways to store my jewelry is in cute bowls, the egg crate and raised up on candlesticks just to vary the height. The picture frame is nice for hanging chunkier pieces on each corner.




So next time you are checking out bathroom accessories, keep your jewelry in mind! You can go here to see the West Elm stacking canister my sister gave me. Thanks, Kristin!
