Several weeks ago, I sold my wall unit desk in the hopes to start a craft room in here. I purchased this dining table for $50.00 off Craigslist. I love the lines and the measurements. A “normal” desk was just not a big enough space for me, so this was perfect!
I wanted quick access to all my tools, so I purchased a frame for $11.00 at Hobby Lobby and painted some pegboard I already had. I stapled the pegboard into the frame, but I needed some help with the wood slats I wanted on the back. Enter husband.
After asking for two weeks, he finished one slat, watched some TV (“Total Drama Island”—really adult stuff)…
… and took a much needed rest from his hard work. This is how he rolls people. Don’t stand in his way.
Wanna see it?
In case you’re wondering how difficult it is to find cute accessories for pegboard, I’d categorize it in the “very” section of my file. I had to get a little creative. The tins below were from the $$ section at Target. I simply placed two pieces of glass from some frames to use as the “shelf”.
The little mesh basket was from my grocery store. It was black, so I just painted it. It houses my “go to” paint colors. The rest are kept in a different place. I figure I’ll rotate them as needed, but no sense in getting them all out at one time.
The wire baskets were a happy accident. I found them at Salvation Army several months ago. I didn’t know what I’d use them for, but I’m glad I bought them! The large one houses my alphabet rub-ons and stickers (I’m a labeler), and the small one fits my sanding sponges perfectly.
The only thing missing is my glue gun and that’s because I was using it in the other room! All together, I probably spent $20-25. Totally worth it for some pretty organization.
