I wanted to create a place to put all of the pens, pencils, and makers that I have. I found the bar at Ikea. It is the Bygel bar and the blue Bygel containers. I also got the Bygel s hooks for my scissors.
I didn't just want to just mount the bar to the wall. I got a piece of wood at Home Depot. I primed and painted the background white. I wanted to bring in some color so I used the wall color and red as an accent. I think that the red really makes it pop.
