I don't know about you but I am often overwhelmed by my craft supplies. Their awkward sizes and shapes are enough to make me go nuts trying to store them. That's why I was super excited to share this easy and fun Customizable Craft wall storage on the Kreg tool "Build Something" site. This project is the perfect solution to keep your craft supplies organized and accessible.
I had this idea to create peg board for my office/craft storage but I didn't want the traditional peg board you find in the hard ware store. I wanted more of a square pattern. Here are the step by step plans:
Step 1: Layout your plan
This may seem like a silly step but it will help ensure your end product suits your storage needs. Start by laying out all your craft supplies, then pull out your most used items, like scissors, pens, glue etc. Determine whether they should be placed in baskets or hung off hooks etc. and draw a rough idea of what your ideal craft storage center would look like. Remember, Don't stress too much, this project is customizable so you can adjust it any time.
Step 2: Drill Peg Holes
Be sure to check the off-cut bin for wood/mdf for this project, it's more economical and often you can find a suitable piece for a desk area.
Now that you know what you want your craft center to look like you can simple drill your holes using the Kreg Shelf jig. I wanted my holes to be fairly far apart so I drilled every third hole. Be sure to use the stopper that comes with the Kreg Shelf jig to ensure you do not drill all the way through your material.
Step 3: Add Pegs and Organize
Insert your pegs into the holes according to your original plan. Cut the pegs or dowels down to any size you like. Add your craft supplies and adjust the pegs as necessary.
