Necklace Wall

Instead of writing the post I had planned to write today, I decided to organize the bulk of my necklaces.

Three tie racks followed by an accordion peg rack hanging on a wall. All of them are filled with necklaces. Underneath the necklaces, boots are lined up in pairs on top of two dressers.
Before

I’ve been using some tie racks and a diamond accordion peg rack to store the majority of my necklaces hanging on a wall in my bedroom. All the wall racks have been secondhand scores.

Hundreds of necklaces lined up on a bed. They have been sorted by color and metal type.

The bulk of my collection was inherited from both my grandmothers, my mother, and my spouse’s grandmother via my mother-in-law. The rest were gifts, pieces I’ve made, or baubles I’ve acquired over the years.

The top of two dressers being used a tool bench. There is a drill, hammer, tape measure, level, towel, and a variety of screws, anchors, and drill bits.

Early on, I made the decision to move all the boots, so I wouldn’t have to deal with sheetrock dust getting on them. It was a double bonus because then I could use the top of the dressers for my tool bench.

I forgot to take a pic of them all empty, but I wasn’t going to take down the necklaces on the filled first rack just for a photo.

My spouse suggested I draw out a rough sketch before starting, and it was a very helpful recommendation! It turned out perfectly to put 2″ of space between each rack.

Underneath the necklaces are two dressers that are cleared off.
Look at that spacing.

The second diamond accordion peg rack (on the left) was something I got for free on the side of the road last summer. It has been thoroughly disinfected, washed, and dried in the months in between then and now.

My brain loves the symmetry of the racks now.

I’m happy with how this jewelry wall turned out, and I’m looking forward to wearing all these cherished necklaces in the future!

Catch me back here next week for another post.
