I can’t believe it’s already Week 4 of the One Room Challenge! This really does prove that time flies whether you’re having fun (or not)! Things are cranking up this week and I’m getting down to the nitty gritty. The ORC is making me really get it done…otherwise knowing me I would be off in a million different decorating projects. Click here for the first three weeks: Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 5
So the pegboard is totally up! It is amazing how many cool attachments there are! This is going to be my go-to wall for organization from now on. It’s brilliant! I got several of these little metal clipboards at Michaels for $5 each. They come in lots of different colors & patterns. The cool thing is that they are hung on the pegboard by a super strength magnet found at Home Depot that screws right into the pegboard! There must be a zillion uses for the magnet. I went back to buy more but they only had 2 packs left so I have to wait another couple days to collect all 11 that I need/want for this project.
Since I’m leaving this faux mantle in place, I want to use it as an organization shelf. I found these glazed flower pots, also at Michaels, for just a couple bucks each. The question is…should I do a turquoise/orange combination or….
Turquoise and white? I love both but I’m leaning towards turquoise & white, just to keep it simple. There will eventually be a LOT of color on the wall and I can use the orange elsewhere. What do you think?
That’s a little magnet board above the pots from Michael’s. I’m just playing around with placement of everything at this point.
I went up to my attic earlier and snapped a picture of this handy dandy little thing. I call it a “pegboard spinner” although I’m sure there’s some other more official title for it. It belonged to my grandfather (“Papaw Guy”) who was a genius at building things…mining machinery, houses, churches (I like to think I got a few of my DIY skills from him). He used it to hang his myriad collection of tools. I inherited it from him along with many of his vintage tools. I’m thinking I may paint this and put it in my craft room or garage, especially now that I know how many cool attachments there are! It would look adorable holding ribbon all the way around, don’t you think?
I know I vowed not to get too “cutesy” with my pegboard, and stick to functionality, but I couldn’t resist this little shiplap-ish sign from Michael’s. Maybe I’ll paint something useful on it!
This coming week I’m focusing on spray painting all the attachments I now have…GOLD! I can’t wait to start organizing! Tune in next week to see a much bigger transformation.
Until then, head on over to the One Room Challenge to see what the other Guest Participants are up to this week!
