How to Make a Giant Peg Board {tutorial} #storage

Hello! I’m back! Did you miss me? ha! I’m sure you were just as busy as me enjoying the holidays. It’s good to be back to a more normal routine though! Time to get some projects marked off my list. This project had been on my to do list for along time. I am so excited to get this baby checked off! It was soooooo easy to put together. I’m not sure what took us so long to make this giant peg board! It’s definitely an afternoon project, & it doesn’t take long to get up at all. It it awesome for organizing all of my craft supplies, & it would make a great addition to any workspace. So keep reading, & I’ll show you how to make a giant peg board. Let’s get to it! ;) First, you’ll need to measure how big you want to make your peg board. I measured my space & decided to make a 4 foot wide by 3 foot tall peg board. You can buy peg board sheets at Home Depot or any home improvement store. I bought a 4 foot by 4 foot sheet. So before we got started we trimmed a foot off the top of my peg board with a table saw. You’ll need a few other supplies to get started: trim 1x2 boards nail gun & nails wood glue paint paint brush caulk & caulking gun table saw miter saw *At the bottom of this post I’ll link to were I got my peg hooks & other storage bins. :) First, you’ll make a frame using the 1x2 boards. Trim the ends of your boards with miter saw to a 45 degree angle so they fit together. Since my peg board was 4 foot by 3 foot I made my frame the same size. Use a little bit of wood glue & a nail gun to attach your frame together. Let dry. I gave my peg board a fresh coat of white paint. You don’t necessarily have to do this step if you don’t want to. I just think everything looks better freshly painted. Plus I used the same paint that I was going to use on the trim & frames. So it all ended up all matchy matchy in the end. ;) We also make a 4 foot by 3 foot frame using some wood trim the same exact way we did the 1x2 frame. You’ll need a frame for the front AND back of your peg board. The peg board needs to be up away from the wall for the peg hooks to fit in. So the 1x2 frame on the back gives it just enough space between the wall to hang your peg hooks & baskets in. Using a nail gun we nailed the peg board to the 1x2 frame. Just go all the way around every 2 or 3 inches or so. For some extra reinforcement put a thin layer of wood glue between the frame & the peg board before you start nailing. Put a thin layer of wood glue around the edge of the peg board then sit the nicer trim frame right on top of the peg board. Using your nail gun again to nail all the way around your peg board. Let the wood glue dry. Then I used a caulk gun to fill in the joints of the trim frame where the wood met & the nail holes. Then I gave the frame one more coat of paint & painted around the edge of the frames so that no wood was showing just nice white edges. The edges will look like the ones below. :) To hang this giant peg board up we just used a stud finder to find the studs in the wall. Put some screws in the studs & hung the peg board on the screws. All done! :) All that was left to do was fill my space with craft supplies! So fun! :) FYI: This is along one wall in our master bedroom. This is where I found my storage containers: mini card catalog made by We R Memory Keepers (found on Amazon or HSN) spinning craft organizer at Hobby Lobby on clearance small metal buckets & glass jars in the Target Dollar Spot big metal buckets at Hobby Lobby white paper organizer made by We R Memory Keepers (found on Amazon or HSN) peg board hooks at Home Depot(2 packs) peg board baskets at Home Depot (2 packs) black metal baskets inside the shelves at Walmart (I took out the cloth liners.) gray credenza from Sauder Furniture gray rolling card for my paint from IKEA Right next to my peg board storage area I have this huge armoire from IKEA that adds even more craft storage. I love this thing! :) Can you see my CAMEO up on top away from little people? ha! You can see more by clicking the picture below. :) Hmmmmmm…..now what should I organize next? ;) Do you have any organization projects in the works? I’d love to hear!

In the Studio

With the school holidays starting later this week I have taken the opportunity today to give the studio space a bit of a clean up so it seemed also like the perfect opportunity to "document it". And yes my OCD (or CDO) is showing here :) My little Liberty Stash is also growing with my monthly Society bundle from Ava and Neve. Last week I also added to my "Tower of Bonnie and Camille" with a 'The Good Life' JR. That little collection has long outgrown the cake plate! I like to keep my fabric wrapped around comic boards. They are a thinner and often cheaper alternative to some the brands that are marketed as boards to wrap your fabrics around. My last lot I picked up from Ebay. They were 2nd's and advertised as being of irregular sizes. We are talking all of mm's different to each other so of no real concern and they came in at 5c each! The white baskets down the bottom are from Kmart and they house my random colour sorted scraps. The shelving its that I am using are from Fantastic Furniture here in Australia. I love storing my fabrics like this as it means I can see exactly what I have and I can shop at home first. The wall of colour is also inspiring and having it to look upon whilst at my sewing machine just makes my heart sing. If I had a little bigger space I would have another shelving unit as my AMH is tucked away safe in a cupboard with a few more gems. The top row of fabrics are all of my Bonnie and Camille. Some days I get a little sad because it has shrunk but then that means I have been sewing with it and that is better than sitting on a shelf right? To the far right there are 6 baskets. That is where I keep my Bonnie and Camille scraps, sorted by colour and easy to go rummaging through :) Above centre, I have a slow growing collection of Kona Solids thanks to my monthly "Kona Cotton Collectors Club" at "The Next Stitch". Here I have them will my "Karen Lewis Textiles Rainbow". I hope that one day they will become a rainbow creation. This is my new baby. A Brother VQ3000. We are still getting to know each other and I am very impressed by her capabilities and her huge throat space. When we have had a little more time to play I might just write up a review for her. I recently moved my cutting table out of the office and back into the sewing hub and I am hoping that I will be able to add a bigger cutting table to this space in the future...stay tuned :) As you can see my cutting table isn't that big or is it that I just have a few projects on it that I am slowly working on all at the same time? Truth be known, the real reason for my clean up today was to find those Liberty squares (above the scissors). I knew I had cut them ready to turn into the next instalment of my Diamonds in a Square Quilt but just had no idea where they were. My OCD is happy now. Now I just need to get into the office and finish sorting it out. It has become the dumping ground and work space for many an EPP project whilst on a Netflix binge! Better go, time to go and mess it all up again :) Happy stitching, Sharon You can also follow Lilabelle Lane Creations here

HOW TO BUILD A CUSTOM CRAFT DESK

This is a Crafting Desk My husband I built for $112.00 in materials and hardware. It is a great sturdy desk with ample storage for all your crafting items. I bought the Closet maid cubicles, 2, 9 cubby ones and 1, 6 cubby one These can be found on sale alot of the time. We saved alot of money by going to a bargain center for the materials. We got the Sheets of MDF for $9.98 each. At Lowes or Home Depot they were $35 each. The Molding we put up at the top edge we got for $2.98 each. Then a tube of Liquid nails, a tube of Kwik Seal Caulk to fill in the finishing nail holes and some screws and nails. Depending on the size you want to build will be the difference in price. My desk is a quite big. The great thing about this is you can make it the size that would work for you. THE DESKS SIZE THAT I MADE WAS: MAIN DESK--75"LONG X 38"WIDE X 36-3/4 TALL SIDE DESK--50"LONG X 26"WIDE X 36-3/4 TALL MATERIALS NEEDED 2-4'x8' X 3/4inch Thick sheets of MDF with Melamine top (Melamine is like a Formica) 3-12 Foot 1"x4" Trim like Pine or your own personal choice of wood. 12-Bolts & nuts to secure 1"x4" boards to cubicles 2-12 foot pieces of Trim of your choice for the top edge 3inch screws for the pieces of frame 1-Quart of Killz primer in white 1-Quart of white paint ( I used cabinet and trim paint its high gloss) 1-Tube of liquid nails 1-Tube of Kwik Seal Caulk or hole filler Handful of small finishing nails with no head on them TOOLS NEEDED Drill & Drill bits to pre-drill holes in cubicles for bolts Philips head for drill Tape measure Caulk Gun A Square Hammer Table saw to cut sheets of MDF and trim and frame STEP 1. PLACE YOUR CUBLICES WHERE YOU WOULD LIKE THEM ACCORDING TO HOW BIG YOU WANT YOUR CRAFT DESK. . STEP 2. MAIN DESK DRILL 2 HOLES ON EACH SIDE OF THE 9 CUBBY CUBICLES ABOUT 3 INCHES APART. MAKE SURE THAT YOU DRILL YOUR HOLES A LITTLE BIGGER THEN THE BOLTS YOU WILL BE USING TO CONNECT THE 1X4 BOARDS TO IT. THEN MEASURE AND CUT YOUR BOARDS SO THAT THEY WILL BE FLUSH AGAINST THE CUBICLES AT ALL END. ON THE 1X4 BOARD TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE MAIN DESK YOU WILL CUT IT 1" SHORTER SO THAT THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DESK FRAME WILL BE FLUSH WHEN YOU FRAME THAT SIDE. FOR THE CENTER YOU WILL CUT MORE 1X4 BOARDS FOR EXTRA STABILIZING AND TO PREVENT SAGGING OF THE MDF IN THE FUTURE. STEP 3 SIDE DESK: DRILL 2 HOLES ON EACH SIDE OF 6 CUBBY CUBICLE IN THE SAME FASHION AS THE FIRST SET. ATTACH BOTH BOARDS TO OPPOSITE END WITH 3-INCH WOOD SCREWS. THEN PLACE 1X4 BOARDS IN CENTER ONE IN THE MIDDLE AND ONE ABOUT 1 INCH FROM THE END. STEP 4: TAKE MEASUREMENTS ONCE EVERYTHING IS FRAMED UP. CUT YOUR SHEETS OF MDF TO FIT EXACT ON THE TOP OF THE FRAME YOU BUILT WITH NO OVERHANG. THE TOP SHOULD BE FLUSH WITH FRAME. THIS WILL BE DONE IN 2 SEPARATE PIECES. TEST THE TOP OUT TO MAKE SURE IT WAS CUT RIGHT THEN REMOVE IT. TAKE YOUR LIQUID NAILS AND CAULK GUN AND APPLY IT TO ALL RAW WOOD ON THE FRAME ON THE MAIN DESK PORTION. YOU DO NOT NEED TO APPLY IT TO THE CUBICLES BUT YOU CAN ITS YOUR CHOICE. DO THE SAME FOR THE SIDE DESK EXCEPT ADD SOME LIQUID NAILS TO THE END PIECE THAT WILL BUTT UP AGAINST THE MAIN DESK TO ADHERE BOTH PIECES TOGETHER. STEP 5: NOW IF YOU USED PINE OR SIMILAR WOOD FOR THE FRAME YOU MAY HAVE SOME IMPERFECTIONS OR AROUND THE AREA YOU CUT IT MAY BE ROUGH. TAKE A PIECE OF SAND PAPER AND GO OVER THE WOOD TO GET IT SMOOTH WITH NO SPLINTERS. AFTER THIS IS DONE YOU MAY ADD TRIM TO WITH FINISHING NAILS (THE KIND WITHOUT A HEAD) TO THE EDGE OF THE DESK THAT WILL BE FLUSH WITH THE TOP. I USED A 1 INCH TRIM FOR THE TOP. STEP 6: TAKE SOME REGULAR "DAP KWIK SEAL CAULK"(LIKE YOU USE TO CAULK AROUND BATHTUBS AND SINKS) TO FILL IN THE LITTLE FINISHING NAIL HOLES. NOW TAKE YOUR WHITE PRIMER AND PUT 2 COATS ON THE FRAME AND TRIM. I WAITED 30 MINUTES IN BETWEEN EACH COAT. THEN APPLY YOUR PAINT (YOUR CHOICE) AGAIN I USED A CABINET AND TRIM IN WHITE BECAUSE ITS HIGH GLOSS AND EASY TO CLEAN. I APPLIED 2 COATS. I ADDED THIS BOOKSHELF THAT I HAD ALREADY TO THE UNDERNEATH ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE DESK FOR A LITTLE EXTRA. ITS NOT ATTACHED TO ANYTHING. IF YOU ARE WANTING TO DO THIS ITS RECOMMENDED THAT IT BE PLACE IN THERE BEFORE THE TOP IS IN PLACE SINCE THE STABALIZING PART OF THE FRAME IS IN THE MIDDLE. CLOSETMAID ALSO HAS THE COLLAPSIBLE FABRIC DRAWERS THAT FIT PERFECT IN THE CUBBYS. I WAS REAL LUCKY TO FIND 14 OF THE SAME COLOR MY COLOR SCHEME IN MY CRAFT ROOM IS ON CLEARANCE FOR $2.39/EACH. THEY ARE NORMALLY ABOUT $7.99/EACH. YOU CAN USE ANYTHING THAT YOU WANT THAT WILL FIT LIKE WOVEN BASKETS WOULD BE CUTE TOO OR NOTHING AT ALL. I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS PROJECT AND FOR THE MONEY ITS A GREAT WAY TO GO. THIS DESK HAS EVERYTHING I COULD EVER WANT IN A CRAFT DESK. IT IS TALL BUT ITS GREAT FOR PROJECTS THAT ARE EASIER TO DO STANDING AND THE TOP HAS SO MUCH WORK SPACE WITH LOTS OF ROOM. IF YOU MAKE ONE PLEASE SHARE SOME PHOTO'S WITH ME I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM!!!

23 Craft Room Ideas We Need to Steal

Sometimes, the only way to get something just how you like it is to do it yourself. This belief applies from everything ranging from cooking for a party (because catering is simply not going to cut it) to renovating the home just right (because nothing really ever starts out perfect). This attention to detail and commitment to perfection characterizes us Southerners quite well. That might be why we have such affection for DIY projects and crafts of all sorts. We know that with enough practice and patience, we can make something truly unique, just how we like it—and usually save money to boot.Crafting is not just for the little ones. Oh no, some take it quite seriously, and some just like to dabble every now and then. But there's something everyone can agree on—a stunning craft room would not be left unused by us. We daydream of a creative space complete with all the supplies we could ever want, displayed in a beautiful, yet functional way. No matter your style, there are some great tips and tricks for creating the perfect craft room. Here are 23 awesome craft room ideas we need to steal as soon as possible.
