Secret Reveal Project #3
My Favorite part yet.
Yes! We have pegboard.
Bright, Beautiful, White Pegboard.
I LOVE IT!
And by now I imagine you have guessed what I intend to use it for.
You guessed it!
Only one problem.
Have you ever tried to organize a pegboard with random items when you have O.C.D.?
It isn’t easy.
I will not tell you how many times I have rearranged the pegs and the products trying to make it pleasing to the eye.
I finally gave up and decided to simply work with the products I have because
Hey, I am a crafter and my supplies change like the wind depending on what deals I find so this time next year it will probably look quite different.
If you look closely you can see that each peg has a variety of items hanging from it. After a LOT of trial and error I realized that in order to see everything I had at a glance it was a necessity.
I often walk downstairs and just glance around for inspiration then grab whatever I see. You can understand why having things visible is important to me.
I also worked on organizing the counter and storage space underneath.
I love it!
You can see the progression as I worked at getting everything purge and organized. It certainly wasn’t a one day event.
It seemed like everyday I was adding “discovered” items to the pile. Just as I would think I was finished “discovering” all my “hidden” craft stashes I would find another one.
I had crafts in a tote under my bed, the top of my closet, the hall closet, the craft room, garage, office, office closet and the shelf in the living room. Just as I thought I had found a home for everything I would have to “rethink” my strategy to make everything fit nicely.
Each box you see was COMPLETELY emptied, purged, repacked and clearly labeled for optimum storage.
This is where I confess some items have been transferred to three or four different containers until I found the perfect one.
I suppose while I am at it I should also confess that this is by far the most expensive project I have EVER under taken. I have repurposed, reused and upcycled as many items as I could but this part of this project alone cost more than I had hoped to spend in total but I LOVE the results.
I will break down the total cost in the final reveal.
