First Project- Office

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.

I labeled the cups with what would go in them. I really love this because it gets some of the extra stuff off of my desk. I hope you like this. I would love any comments. Thanks!

  2. Such a cute project! Love the paint job! I'd love to see the rest of the room. My craft room needs a bulldozer to come through it, so I could use the inspiration. Thanks for sharing.
