If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know what a huge mess my office is! It's definitely even more of a disaster after Christmas crafty season. YIKES. I made it my mission in January to tidy it up and make it easier to work in again. You might have seen my craft room office mood board last Friday with all of the fun colours and beautiful furniture I plan on incorporating in the space, and today I'm sharing with you a mini tour of the pegboard gallery wall we installed above my desk!
Here's the super-scary before of how my desk was... "organized". Oh boy.
And here's the after! HOORAY! Using a scrap piece of pegboard left over from our laundry room pegboard wall, I made a really functional and pretty pegboard and art gallery wall for my desk wall.
Ain't she pretty?! I'm just so pleased with how my desk looks and functions now. It feels so good to get lots of things up and off my desk to create more space to work. Plus, gallery walls and pegboard just make my heart smile.
Not only do we have this pegboard and the DIY mason jar storage system that actually hold craft supplies, but I've also included some art and accessories to make the wall personal and fun.
I even have the space on my computer desk now to place my sewing machine if I want to!
For fun ribbon and twine storage on the pegboard wall, I hung a knitting needles on some pegboard hooks and slid the rolls of ribbon on.
Baskets hooked onto the pegboard hold some trim and lace.
To create this wall, I compiled some art and accessories that I already had and noted their measurements. I knew that I wanted to include my DIY mason jar storage system and a piece of pegboard that measured 2 x 5 feet, so I played with all of the pieces on graph paper until I came up with an arrangement that I loved.
To fill in some of the awkward blank spots that my artwork and pegboard didn't cover, I hung my DIY hearts banner and made a banner using this method for the other long horizontal spot. I love the addition of texture and textile to the wall... and it really makes sense to add these into a sewing and craft space.
My husband and I hung the giant piece of pegboard to the wall the same way as we did our laundry room pegboard, but we didn't frame this one.
So, what do you think? Would you work here? I'm really, really happy with this wall, and I can't wait to tackle the rest of my office space!
