DIY Jewelry Display

I have been in a cleaning & organizing mood lately and boy does my apartment show it right now!  I have been using Pinterest as my guide and thought I would share some of the projects I have tried.  First of all, the one I am most excited about is my jewelry display.  I found some inspiring images on Pinterest and decided to use what I already had to create a pretty jewelry display.

So I went into my storage unit and saw what I had...

There were quite a few options, but I really liked this picture holder that I found at Gardner Village a few years ago as the main display to hang my necklaces and earrings:

The picture holder was only $12, and the rest of the pieces on my dresser I found at DI and Goodwill- all under $2 each!

My rings and stud earrings I put in the little box, and bracelets are in the silver tray and glass candle holder.  Sorry my instagram picture isn't super great- I will post more pics later with a room redo.

So, really anyone can do this for under $20 or even cheaper if you "treasure hunt" at your local secondhand store!

Lately I have been trying to be better about accessorizing my typical jeans and a t-shirt wardrobe.  I bought a couple of bracelets at Forever 21 that I have been wearing almost every day, and just a few days ago I splurged on a bib necklace that I have been eyeing for over a year now...


I bought the turquoise one, and now I am just patiently waiting and planning all the cute clothes I will be dressing it up with.  What's your favorite outfit to wear a statement necklace with?

Allie's Big Girl Room

Since Allie will have her own room (hopefully soon) I am thinking about how I want to do it.  She is SO girly and loves everything princess, so I am thinking about doing something like that.  Here are some ideas that I love and will probably use for my inspiration:

Big Boy's Room

I have been thinking about how to do Macsen's room once it is just a boys room (not sharing with Allie) and I am really leaning toward something very masculine and grown-up.  Here are some rooms that I am using for my inspiration:

I love the idea of one dark blue wall...I like this color blue a lot:
