I am a jewelry addict. I’ve loved to collect jewelry, much like one might collect stamps or sports memorabilia. I have it all – bracelets, earrings, anklets, toe rings, brooches, lockets, and thumb rings. I’ll admit, it’s gotten a bit out of hand. I realized that it was becoming a problem shortly after I moved into a new apartment that was much smaller than the place I’d previously lived. Soon, my abundant jewelry collection seemed to take over the space. It was spread out over the kitchen table, on countertops, atop the bathroom vanity, and on pretty much every other available surface. It was getting ridiculous, and I was becoming frustrated by the chaos. When I lost one of my favorite pieces, I decided that something had to be done. So, I looked into purchasing a jewelry armoire.
I was hesitant at first. I worried that it would be a waste of money and just one more item to clutter up my tiny apartment. I wondered where I would even put it – space was incredibly limited in my suite. But, after I did some research, I learned that armoires come in a variety of sizes and styles, and the price range varies. There really does seem to be something for everyone when it comes to armoires, regardless of your price range, space limitations, or desired style. I decided that a tall, skinny one would be the best for me, because it would take up the least amount of space. But, then I found something even better.
What I stumbled upon was an armoire that is mounted right to the wall. This was perfect for me, because it hardly took up any space at all. The one I selected is beautiful oak, and blends in nicely with the rest of the furnishings in my apartment. It also doubles as a mirror, which is a neat feature. It has a mirror on the top, and compartments along the sides and bottom for my jewelry. Now I’m able to put everything away where it belongs. It’s no longer taking over my apartment, and I can find what I’m looking for without all that frustration and panic to which I’d grown accustomed. My jewelry armoire is something that I know I’ll use for years to come, and that makes the cost of it seem worthwhile. As an avid jewelry collector, it’s important to me to know that my prized possessions are safe and that I can find them quickly and easily.
