Jewelry Organizing Tips: Magnets

Decorating Tip: Use Magnets to Organize Your Jewelry

To say that I'm inspired by magazines may be a bit obvious, but very rarely do two magazine-related inspirations meld into one perfectly realized DIY that I can use in my home. But that's exactly what happened when I combined a post from Paul Lowe (the stylist and creative force behind Sweet Paul magazine) and a photo spread from Country Living.

Paul had featured some DIY magnets he'd made from vintage jewelry on Sweet Paul, and I expanded on this idea in another post to encourage readers to use metallic trays as inspiration boards. A week later, I was leafing through the October issue of Country Living and came upon a photo spread feturing Anthropologie's new State Fair Magnets ($34). I immediately wanted them, but after I got them home, I realized they weren't going to work on our fridge — I have a toddler who's very good at removing nearly everything from our refrigerator, no matter how high up it may be (he uses a broom to access things he wants, clever little rapscallion).

So I moved them into the relative safety of my bedroom. I used a tray with rosemaling on it to riff on the vintage feel I have going on in this corner. The magnets are surprisingly strong — I can easily loop three to four necklaces on each magnet. While this may not end up being used as a permanent jewelry organizer, I'm really enjoying the switch right now.

Have you ever used magnets for displaying jewelry?
