Moving into my first apartment was fun because I had an entire apartment to myself to decorate any way I wanted. When it came to deciding where things went, I was able to have everything fit perfectly and easily to get to. Now fast forward to moving in with my boyfriend and we have a house with two apartments worth of stuff so it’s been a bit of a challenge to unpack and both find room for the stuff we need.
One thing I needed to find space for in the bedroom was my jewelry and makeup. We have a good size bedroom but we still had to get creative to arrange the furniture in the best place so we had room for our stuff. Once the dressers and bed were delivered, we sighed in relief because there was still a good amount of floor space and room for my vanity and our end tables. I thought it would be helpful to do a full post on how I store my most used items without taking over the entire bedroom. Thank goodness Jake doesn’t mind the color pink and most of the furniture besides his dresser is from my original bedroom.
I have a jewelry wall organizer that holds all of my necklaces perfectly so I just needed to find the perfect spot for it. Luckily, there is some wall space behind the bedroom door so i can be easy to get to it but doesn’t become an eye sore. While moving, I found another jewelry organizer in a storage bin that fits perfectly above it to hold my earrings and bracelets. I found that if I don’t see what I have, I forget all about it so I like having everything in one place so I can quickly look and grab something on my way out the door, literally!
I thought about investing in a big jewelry box or some piece of furniture, but we just don’t have the room for something like that. Now after a few months of having everything in one corner, it becomes so easy to see what I have since it’s all on display.
I have so much makeup but I don’t like seeing it on display so I keep everything in my vanity. The items I use the most are on top of my vanity in a cute storage container and everything else is in my vanity drawers. I’m constantly surprised by how much this vanity can hold and it’s been a great investment piece!
I hope you found this post helpful and helps inspire you while finding storage solutions in your home!
