I have kind of slacked a bit and keep forgetting to share peeks into my craft room that I spend so much time in! I go to do it, and then I get distracted by shiny things like shopping for bathroom supplies online, or something. This craft room pegboard organization area is one of the most heavily used areas of the room. It gets changed around quite a bit as you can see from the pictures in this post. The picture above was taken today, and the picture below was taken when the room was first completed. And yes, I know it’s not Thursday…my kids love turning the flaps on that desktop calendar I made.
DIY Craft Room Pegboard Organization
For the most part things stay in about the same place, but it’s easy to move things around. To make this area, we purchased a smaller piece of pegboard from Home Depot. Originally I wanted the huge full panel one, but in my small room it just didn’t make a lot of sense. I believe this is about 4 feet by 2 feet. To hang it we made a simple frame on the back side with thin strips of wood, you don’t want to use something too wide because the bigger the frame on the back, the more holes that are covered.
You do want a frame though so that you can easily hang it and so that you can put hooks through the holes. We just used screws and a little wood glue to put the frame on the pegboard. We made sure to find studs in the wall before we hung it so that it could hold the weight of the board and the supplies that would hang from it.
For most of the organization tools I just purchased a pegboard kit at The Home Depot and used the things in there. I also got the wire baskets in that same section. These are great for some of my paint and my sticky thumbs. The hooks work great to hold up my twine, scissors, glue gun, Cropadiles and Letterpress plates.
The little buckets I get at Target in the one spot, and I have a ton of them that make it through the rotations. I use them in some of my mantel, piano and porch box decor schemes and then in my craft room I always have them full of pens, markers, craft tools and of course chocolate. 🙂
I hang a couple on the pegboard itself and then I always have some on top of the filing cabinet that I made over too. The white basket that I keep my ink pads in is from the dollar store, I’ve had it forever, but I’m sure they have lots of fun things you can add. The pink crate with all of my glue and adhesive in it, is a painted CD crate from a craft store. You may remember it from when I made those produce crates.
I still need to show you my DIY waterfall desk, my wrapping station, my standing craft table and my built in storage shelves! This craft room was such a HUGE production for such a small space, but I have to say that I spend sooo much time in here! It is important to love the space that you create in if you want to feel inspired and happy while creating, and I am in love with my space. 🙂
