Living on the Ledge
I’m no Elizabeth Taylor, but I have enough jewellery to warrant special storage concerns that can’t be solved with those woefully small trees meant to dangle baubles on.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Mark dots on the bottom of the picture ledge where you will place your hooks. Create two rows the length of the ledge with each dot three centimeters apart.
2. Use a nail and hammer to tap a small hole in the place where the hook will be.
3. Use that hole as a guide when you hand twist the cup hook into place. This takes a little muscle, but keep going until all hooks are in place. You’ll be able to fit 50 hooks.
4. Mount the picture ledge. Hang your necklaces from the hooks and place bracelets and rings on the ledge above.
Mine is on the wall beside my vanity, making accessorizing so much easier. —Jaelyn Molyneux
