I am obsessed with finding new ways to repurpose items and to display my jewelry/fashion at home. Take for example this setup below.
I wanted a staging area where I could put my basic jewelry that I wear pretty much every day, my perfumes, small rings, etc. My necklaces are otherwise hanging in my closet but I wanted a display as I don’t like things on top of my dresser other than art! I am a HUGE fan of NO NO NO Clutter and minimalized design so this was a perfect solution for me.
The entire project only cost me a few dollars. But first here’s the pic!
I found a small craft table at Goodwill for $2. Just a basic table. I then went to JoAnne Fabric, found a pattern of fabric I liked and that went with my decor, had it custom cut and voila I have a side jewelry table. The fabric cost me $7.
From there I got some statement and art pieces to snazz it up – the “blah” sign was from Target and only $1 on clearance. The mirror frame is also thrifted from Goodwill for 50 cents, and I found one of my favorite Carrie Bradshaw quotes and had it printed and framed. I then thrifted the milk vase and small bowl you see in the center to stack my Alex and Ani and my smallest jewelry (earrings, rings, etc.) The tray in the front I used for displaying my perfumes and earrings and that was also only $2 from Goodwill. So all in all, in total it cost me $12.50! The pink necklace display was from Christmas from my sister, including that gorgeous statement necklace, so definitely a nice little addition!
From there I found my three favorite perfumes that I mix up depending on how I’m feeling that day. And ladies you should always mix up your perfumes to keep it spicy 😉

For FLIRTY: Twirl, by Kate Spade NY (middle)
For SOFT/EVERY DAY: Wildflower, by Banana Republic (to the right)
So there you have it. A small, non-costly project that helped me repurpose items in my home and upcycle thrifted goods from Goodwill. I truly believe that if you display your items creatively, rather than throwing all your jewelry in a drawer, it will make you feel fabulous and help you better see everything you have to wear and find new ways to style it up. Having a staging area in the morning also helps me on the days I’m running behind so I don’t have to sift through I can just grab and go!
