It's starting to all come together in the basement craft room! Especially now that I have my tools and materials (or at least some of them) nice and organized on my pegboard.
This is a really quick and cheap way to organize craft and art supplies. I did this a couple of days ago and I think it took me about 30 minutes to get it up on the wall with everything in place.
I picked up a 2x4-ft. piece of pegboard at Home Depot for less than $8 and attached it to the wall using the hardware that came with a peg hook assortment kit. I made sure that the screws went into the wall studs. Had I had an extra set of hands, it would have been up in half the time. It is a little tricky trying to get the spacers in place while holding up the board with only 2 hands...but not impossible.
The pegs are sold way on the other side of the store near the garden center. The sales clerk I asked was confused about where they were and it took a little searching to find them. You can also find sets of wire baskets that are great for holding all sorts of stuff like paints, different mediums, glue sticks and inks.
Other supplies that found a home here were ribbons, embroidery hoops, a glue gun, scissors, paint brushes, a paint palette and a rotary cutter.
Then, because I thought the plain white pegboard could use a little something something, I "framed" it with extra wide washi tape. I just stuck the tape to the wall. It peels right off if you get sick of it.
So if you are like me always searching for your glue gun, scissors, Mod Podge or whatever, you might just need a little pegboard in your life.
Enjoy your weekend!
