Today's DIY office space is easy!
Here are a few things that you will need
1. A Fence Board
2. Knobs or Hooks
(This portion depends on the desired look you want.)
5. Paint or Stain
7. Possibly an Electric Drill
(This depends on The kind of screws you use)
Start by sanding down your board, This project is something you could put to use an old piece of wood laying out in the garage.
If you used a fence board like I did, you will not get a perfectly smooth surface. Which is why I chose the fence board I was looking for a little bit of a rough look. Once you have the board the way you want it its time to stain/paint the board. I used a gray stain for my project because I wanted to carry the look of the desk up towards the wall.
Now its time for a coffee break while your board dries. I have a huge habit of starting my projects first thing in the morning and then finishing up that afternoon or the next day. I was able to complete this particular project the next day.
I found these really cute hooks at a local store here in town. I do believe I have seen something like them at hobby lobby, but I can't guarantee that you will be able to find the exact ones I used. I didn't actually buy these for any particular reason, it was something I saw at one time months ago and thought they where cute so I picked them up.
The next step is to decide where you would like your knobs to be along the board and drill in some holes for the screws. My hooks actually had holes in the front of them so I used wood screws to hold them into the board.
If you have read a past Blog you are aware that I like things that work for me, That definitely includes my clothing. I want products that can be used for different things but still carry a sense of style. Which is where these adorable bags come into play. I did mention that we would be using a few thing in the Boutique to bring a fresh sense of a unique style in my home office. Let me reintroduce you to these amazing Recycled Fiesta bags.
These bags will actually become the focal point of my wall above the desk.
I used three of these bags.
1. Lay them out flat next to each other
This is only necessary if you want them to hang the same distance. If your looking for a haphazard look then you can skip this step.
Next you are going to tie a knot to create the length you want and tad your done! Hang them up and now you have some amazingly stylish baskets to hold or in my instance hide all your stuff! A bonus is that your friends probably don't have the same look in their home office. So go for it,
Order yours today and share pictures, please!
I would love to see what you create.
I filled one with my Magazines, the second with papers, and I left the third empty so I could fill it up when I needed a quick clean.
Yet, the best part of this storage DIY is I can grab and go!
Okay, I would need to be a little more organized but the ability is there!
