Sarah Hearts. The home project I’ve been most excited about (and anxious to complete) is my new home office. Since moving to L.A. in September, I’ve been planning how best to organize and set up my new workspace. Our home is a bungalow after all and about half the size of our home in Florida so I definitely wanted to be intentional about how the space was arranged. After chatting with my creative mom, I decided the best solution was to go up! Since the room is long and narrow, with doors at either end it made the most sense to utilize the wall space. My mom works at The Container Store, aka one of my favorite places ever, and helped design and plan the Elfa shelving. I wanted to break up the space a bit and add a pop of color to the floor with a bright rug.

There is about a 30″ wide space right when you walk in the room, so I decided to use that space to store fabric, tissue paper, and gift wrap.

These home owners did a fantastic job of turning a very common and mundane basement into a colorful and bright office and hobby room with every day materials.

I have always loved the idea of using pegboards to organize a space but, for some reason, I have never used one in our home…until now!

The frame has a routed rabbet on the front that the pegboard sits in. This allows for a 1/2″ gap between the pegboard and the wall for the hooks to be easily inserted. I used the biscuit joiner to assemble the frame – pocket holes or flat corner braces can also be used. This super-easy project is suitable for all skill levels!

For the most part, I've been pretty happy with all of my quick decisions, but not so much my office/workspace. After, you know, actually working in the space, it quickly revealed its shortcomings -- chief among them was that there wasn't enough storage for what is apparently an ever-expanding craft supply stockpile.

What you'll find conspicuously missing from old photos of the room is an overhead light. As for the curtains, I had gone with white back in November, because I'd thought that a bold pattern would compete and ultimately clash with the wallpaper. And now, my pegboard.

I gave my peg board a fresh coat of white paint. We also make a 4 foot by 3 foot frame using some wood trim the same exact way we did the 1x2 frame.

Using a nail gun we nailed the peg board to the 1x2 frame. Put a thin layer of wood glue around the edge of the peg board then sit the nicer trim frame right on top of the peg board.

After three weeks of steady working on our Craft Room Makeover it’s finally time for our biggest, most creative project. And the best part is that with just a fifteen dollar investment at our local hardware store I’m finally sharing exactly how to make a giant pegboard.

The hubby and I picked up our giant pegboard at Marvins… it’s four feet wide by eight feet tall and took 2 guys (the Marvins loading dude and the hubster) to tie it to the top of our SUV. I thought about purchasing a smaller pegboard and adding a pretty frame but in the end the need for space won out and I decided to go with a tall pegboard that would really carry the eye allllll the way up to the ceiling. It’s a small space so anything that makes the space seem bigger is a good thing. Of course, the pegboard we brought home was just a tad bit too big so the first thing we did was take this bad boy outside and shave a bit off the sides.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We spoiled Mr. Sugarplum with love, and confused him with all the mustaches (especially since I much prefer him clean-shaven). We also heard from a lot of friends and family who saw the feature in the Dallas Morning News yesterday…thanks for the love!

Houseful of Handmade. If you haven’t use pegboard to organize your sewing or crafting supplies, you should! Seriously, it was a huge game changer for me when I created my pegboard in my old craft corner. Having my scissors, washi tape, ribbons and other frequently used crafting supplies within arms reach, always ready to go, makes crafting so easy.

But when I moved from my craft corner and desk in the living room to my new office & craft room, I knew I wanted my pegboard hung so it wasn’t permanently attached to the wall. With a few extra steps, I figured out how to hang pegboard so it is removable (or easily moveable). If you missed yesterday’s post, I am working on redoing my new office & craft room this month by only spending $100. If you do not have an old piece of pegboard and a pile of scrap wood lying around, it may cost you a little bit to make this awesome craft room storage solution.

Why pegboard? Because they offer a way to maximize vertical space while keeping commonly used items right at hand. They allow you to mix and match a variety of storage options and keep your surfaces and work areas clutter free. And they are versatile! My first peggy project is done and it was the easiest project ever. After we removed a storage cabinet from our laundry room to use as a gift wrap station, we decided to take advantage of the fresh blank slate and bring in some new functionality.

Did I mention that this was super simple? As you can see from the photo above, we measured, cut the pegboard to the size of the frame, and popped it inside. I gave the frame a coat of my favorite gold spray paint, and opted to leave the pegboard white to allow the colorful accessories to shine. As far as what I selected to store here, just the most commonly used items. And that is that! IHeart Organizing. IHeart Organizing. In My Own Style. Just A Girl. Just Between Friends. Lara Robby.
