I am by no means a gal who is crazy about going to the hardware store unless it's to pick out new appliances. I usually reserve the privilege of finding nuts, bolts, snaps, screws, tools, etc., for my hubby. Little did I know the treasures awaiting me that lurked in the aisles of what I would often refer to as the "man store"! I discovered a little slice of wonderful called PEGBOARD AND ACCESSORIES. Ever since we moved into our apartment the biggest challenge has always been space and lack thereof. For months all of my scrapbooking supplies stayed in boxes, to remain there until I found a way to house numerous accoutrements of my addiction. With pegboard and the all hooks, bottles, and little bins you can get with it, I've managed to organize everything without taking up much floor space, plus the added bonus of getting rid of more moving boxes. It also makes me feel like I have my own little 'scrap store' in the house every time I look at it, which is so much fun for me! So for my visitors who just might happen to be looking for an organizing idea, give pegboard a chance...it's not just for garages anymore!
My crafting scissors.
A small shelf I made using two long hooks and a small scrap of wood.
They even make bottles that screw right onto the board! Cute!
My other scrapbooking supplies stored away in my IKEA shelves/bins.
To BFF Kim who is my organization guru: aren't you proud of your little grasshopper? He he!
