Now, since I didn't have a window on the area of the wall where my main shelves would go, I had to improvise and decided to put a dry erase board there, as you can see in my pics from the post about the ribbon organizer project.
The thing is, I NEVER use that whiteboard! Never. I think Thing 1 and Thing 2 have drawn on it more than I have.
So, I decided I wanted to replace it with something more functional...a peg board.
I went to Lowe's and was able to find a 2 ft x 4 ft pre-cut peg board (otherwise they came in HUGE sheets!) for $5. I also picked up a 47 pc assortment of peg hooks for $9.
The pegboard was a brownish color, so when I got home I primed it and painted it white.
Then I hung it (remember you need to leave space behind it for the peg hooks...my assortment kit actually came with rubber spacers, which made it easy).
Then I added my peg hooks.
Then I ended up totally rearranging the peg hooks as I placed the items I wanted to hang. :)
I don't have it fully organized yet, but here it is so far.
(Please ignore the mess on the bottom right. It's a combination of some stuff that needs to make it onto the board and stuff that needs to find a place to go.)
