How To Organize Your Vanity

Hey Everyone, this week was all about organizing for me. I finally got to tackle a few projects I’ve been putting away and my vanity table was definitely one of those projects. Though most of the time I keep my vanity pretty neat, I still like to go through it once in a while to make sure that the jewelry and fragrances I wear the most are nice and handy, and pieces that are more “special occasion” are neatly stored away. A few tricks I use to keep it all organized is categorizing, different types of storage and finally, color themes.

Let’s start with the color theme. Choosing a particular color theme helps to create a uniform look, which is why I’ve decided that all the storage items will be either black or gold. This way, I didn’t necessarily have to match each storage container to the other, I simply acquired items in my chosen colors as I found them.

Next is types of storage. I like to keep my perfumes on a tray. Aside from the fact that I simply love the effect it creates, a tray helps to keep them all in one place and I can display more of my favorite fragrance without my vanity looking messy and overwhelming. I also keep a jewelry tray on my bedside table, where I store the pieces I wear everyday.

Normally, I store my “special occasion” jewelry in glass shadowboxes. Clear glass boxes keep these pieces in clear view, and provide easy access, which I love.

Organize your jewelry by look and type: for example, I often store pearls, crystals, and various metal types separately. This way, if I am looking for a particular ring, necklace or a brooch, I know exactly where to look for it. I also prefer to keep rings, bracelets, and earrings separate. Necklaces are particularly tricky to store which is why I only store them on necklace trees. I have not found a better way of storing necklaces so they don’t tangle, not to mention the fact that trees provide easy access.
