Sometimes the key to making a tiny space look large is simply keeping it clean, and the key to keeping any place clean is organization. Having a place for everything and putting everything in its place will keep "stuff" from piling up haphazardly around your home.
You can purchase fancy organizer systems for just about any space in your house either online or in a store, but you will be paying for somebody else's labor and overhead. Often, finding just the right system for your needs or space can be frustrating. Creating custom organizers allows you to save money and make the piece fit perfectly in your space. Check out the ideas below.

Repeat that step near the top of the branch. Once it's on the wall, you can start hanging jewelry on it.
