Tweak It Tuesday - Bracelet Organizer


Good Morning everyone....
It's Tweak It Tuesday.

Tweak It Tuesday - DIY bracelet organizer




Today I am bringing back a great little organization project 
that has been quite popular on Pinterest.
I love to wear bracelets and I have quite a few of them
but, 
I was always forgetting to put them on.
I would realize after I had left the house that I hadn't added my favorite
accessory to my outfit and be so upset with myself.
But, in my defense I am a very visual person 
and
they were hidden in a jewelry box - out of sight, out of mind for me.
I had to come up with some kind of  storage that was easily 
accessible and pleasing to the eye so I could remember to use them.
I mean why have them if you keep them in a jewelry box.
I had seen several ways of organizing jewelry that just didn't work for me.
But, one day I saw something I knew would work on Pinterest.
(I didn't pin it then (in 2012) therefore I can't give credit
but if it is yours please let me know)

Remember these old 1960's coffee mug trees?
Everyone had one sitting next to their coffee pots.
I know I had one back then.  
But, it has long been gone.

It took me a while to find another one - they must still be popular.
One day when out thrifting I ran across this one
in a thrift store for $3.
I was sold immediately because a new one with only 4 arms was $10 
and 
finding one in a thrift store was not happening.
So, I grabbed that baby fast.
You would have thought I had found gold....
I do not have a before picture but, it was brown wood and ugly.
I painted it with Valspar's Anthem White latex paint.
(This was before I discovered chalk paint)
That was all that was needed for this little update.

Then I hung all those fun bangles (grouping them by color) from the six arms
and 
set it on my bathroom counter.
Right where I can see them.
 They are so handy when I am getting ready to go out.
I love it because now I remember to put them on
and 
they make a colorful addition to my bathroom counter.
Such a simple and easy solution to a problem 
that was driving me crazy.
Why did I not figure it out sooner?
