Organization for Hair Accessories

I have been looking for a way to organize all of my daughter's bows.  My 5 year old has tons of bows but was not able to keep them on her bow hanger.  So, we came up with a solution.  

The unit is a piece of plywood which I covered with batting and fabric.  I then attached the hangers to hold all of her different accessories.

Hair Accessory and Jewelry Organizer

Bows are hung on a magnetic strip from IKEA.

Headbands and sunglasses are held by an drawer pull from Lowes.
The hooks hold bracelets and necklaces as well as other accessories.

Attic Organization

Most of my attic is stacks of boxes containing various holiday decor.  However,  I recently moved a bookcase into my attic that was no longer needed in the playroom and used it for organization. It has worked out great.  I have been able to store many more items in the space.  

I was able to store most of my wrapping supplies for Christmas on this rack as well as the ice skates that we need and did not fit in a box.
