The Organized Life, Necklace Wall Organizer

I am lucky enough to have a large walk-in closet all to myself, but there is just one tiny little problem…


There is a giant column in the center of it!


The center front, as in 2 feet inside the door, so when you open the door,  there it is, right in your face!  To get to your clothes, you must navigate around it on the right side.  But that’s also where I would lazily  conveniently kick off my shoes.

I have looked at this wall several times a day for over 20 years, and finally I had an Ah Hah! moment~ I could paint it!

I could paint a girly shape and add polka dots!

and a border and

and then in the center of the polka dots I could put vintage knobs!


in lots of colors and shapes!


It would look so fun and festive!!  It would be such a cheerful greeting!


and it would be the perfect place to hang my necklaces

I sort of have a thing for necklaces

funky, clunky, colorful necklaces~

I also hung a flat clear organizer on the opposite wall to the left of the door, across from the column


for earrings.  Now I can see everything at a glace and it’s all right there with my clothes.


The necklaces used to hang on the shoe organizer that is on the back of the column~ which is why my shoes were all over the place.  Now they are actually on the shoe rack and I can actually walk into the closet without tripping over them.

And it only took me twenty years to figure this out!!


2014 is going to be a great year!  You know, now that I am so organized and all, and not tripping over my shoes….

  1. I love this idea Jenna. I have my jewelry hanging from hooks and door knobs. I have a spot in my closet where I could do this very thing. Wonderful!!

    Jenna, this idea was worth the wait! Very creative…… I love your idea, the paining is adoraable and the knobs there, well, just over the top place for your necklaces. Now I wish I had a column in my closet………….

  3. You are the clever one! You took a lemon and made lemonade.

    Love your idea. And your design choice with the door knobs, is oh so Bohemian chic. 20 yrs….. like moms use to say….”I don’t care how long it takes you as long as you do it right.” Looks like you did! 🙂 Love it.

  5. Great idea and pretty too. Good job.

    Jenna, Cute & fun! I LOVE your painting and the addition of those cute knobs for hanging jewelry,functional and fashionable too! Better late than never! I think it’s easier to be objective and have solutions for someone else’s space or house rather than your own 🙂

    Jenna, you rock! I’m wishing I had a column in my closet! 🙂 I’m in the midst of a jewelry storage challenge at my house. I’ll be looking for an empty wall to copy you, but I can NEVER paint like you! Can you come over? 😉
