Introduction: Corkboard Accessory Organizer

This is the single greatest improvement to my morning routine I have ever made. 

Before I implemented this solution, I had a way-too-cluttered corkboard of random things, a pile of tangled necklaces and bracelets (which I never had the patience to untangle and wear), and no storage place for sunglasses and glasses.  (Every time I needed them, I would just wear the first pair I found.)   

This has cleaned up my tabletops and allowed me to actually choose and wear accessories.  (And, it has cleared out my jewelry box for my better jewelry which keeps the fragile stuff protected.)

I'm sure that people could make this prettier in a thousand ways; this solution worked for me because I didn't have to do anything except clear off the board I already had and place all of the thumbtacks.

    I'm about to move into a smaller space than the ridiculously small space I already share with my family. We have no storage and everything is always a mess. I'm doing this in both my girls' and my bedrooms in the new apartment. Thanks for a great idea :-)

    I was using this on-the-door organizer for jewelry but this is way more clever and accessible! I have such a small amount of accessories (1 watch, 1 pair of sunglasses, 3 bracelets, 2 pairs of earrings) that this will work great! I have a small cork-board I can mount tonight... and some pins! Thank you!

    That's very nice of you to say. I lucked out; my mom makes jewelry. Many of these things are from her.

    Awesome idea! It seems so obvious, but I never thought of using a cork board for my jewelry :)

    Thanks! I thought it might be a little too obvious for an instructable. It's totally one of those things that once you do it, you wonder how did it any other way. :)
