With the recent disassembly of my tall bookshelves, I’ve found that we have a lovely amount of free wall space now – perfect for hanging things. I began drawing up organizational “trays” for the utensil drawer when I realized everything fit spaciously if I just took out our large cooking spoons. So where do they go? The wall, of course!
These planks of wood were $2.50 USD, 3′ long, and are perfectly for these lightweight hangings. I bought them for backing ideas for the Mantle, then for the utensil drawer, and now they’re just going up on the wall in storage bits. These are the same pegs I used for the other scrap wood hangers (although I had to buy another pack because I misplaced the first ones). Not including the cutting of the wood, this project was under $5 and I haven’t even used half of the supplies.
None of this would have been possible, however, without the aid of my most wonderful roommate and her mother, who bought me a Jigsaw cutter! A cut I couldn’t even get started with the handsaw was done in under 10 seconds. With my new
precious baby power tool, I can make a lot of progress on all of my construction projects. :)
More to come!
