Apartment Sweet Apartment: Jewelry and Makeup Organization
Growing up, I was a terribly messy child. No matter how much my mother yelled and screamed, my bedroom always looked like a hurricane came through it. Moving into my first apartment it wasn't much better. I had a horrible habit of leaving clothes all over the place, not washing my dishes... it was gross. I was gross.
Now that I'm older, I'm NEUROTIC about my apartment. I get anxiety if everything doesn't have a place, and if people come over and everything isn't "just so". My biggest problem was that I didn't know how to ORGANIZE things. Thanks to the wonder of Pinterest, I've learned this skill... and I've been slowly but surely tucking my two bedroom apartment away into boxes and hooks and all sorts of little nooks.
I have a lot of jewelry and makeup, so my bathroom was a long time coming. This is what my CURRENT setup looks like, though it's bound to change in the near future. I got the dresser off of Craigslist and organized it with little dividers from Daiso. The bowls are all thrift store finds. My ex boyfriend's mom got me the cool hands. The AMAZING jewelry rack I got off of Amazon a few years back. This corner of my apartment makes me so happy.
