Hiding Jewelry in Plain Sight
When you look around your house, do you see spots where storage would be so useful? Under the stairs is a common one. Thankfully builders and remodelers are using that space more often now, for a little storage room, a pantry, or bookcases.
Or how about the space between walls? I love the tall storage shelves that slide out from that way—what an excellent way to hide a wealth of storage space?
We’ve covered the varied use of baskets, along with another article on other furniture that should provide storage. What about some of the less obvious items in your household? Do you have a full length mirror? Did you know you can get one that opens to a long jewelry case as well?
The ones featured here are among my favorites. Providing good, usable storage in an item like a mirror—something that usually has just a single purpose—is an excellent idea. I love the variety available in lieu of the standard jewelry box that takes up a surface.
The other benefit is that you can hang necklaces and chains rather than have them sit in a drawer getting tangled. They hold a lot too, don’t they?
Since the one above is a standing floor full length mirror, you can imagine how much space it provides inside for all your jewelry. The inside dimensions are 48″ High x 15 Widex 4” deep. The outside size is 60″ x 16.5″ x 19” deep. It looks attractive standing in any bedroom. We all need a full length mirror, so why not have the storage inside that comes with this one?
Besides holding dozens of necklaces bracelets and earring, it has 16 compartments, a rod for scarf, ties or bracelets, 2 drawers, a pouch and perhaps best of all, it locks. It is such a functional piece that it is unlikely one would think of it as a hiding place for jewelry. A good secret to have.
Another favorite is this smaller and attractive cabinet. It measures 16 x 23 x 4 inches. On the left it holds 6 photos measuring 3×5. On the right, a mirror. It is wall mounted which saves any floor or surface space, and when you open the door you will find plenty of storage for your jewelry.
Across the top go your earring, below that is hanging area to keep necklaces and any size chains from tangling. Then the sweet feature of 12 little drawers for everything else. Available in white or a mahogany finish, it will fit most decors.
Different colors, different sizes, there are so many to choose from. You jewelry is hidden, out of sight and away from dust, leaving an uncluttered stylish look.
A great gift idea for any woman in the family. One she will treasure for years to come.
