I organized everything so that the things I use the most are near the edge of the board and lower. Higher up and toward the middle of the board houses items I use less frequently.
The little baskets hold rubber stamps, molds and paints that I use for beadmaking. Mason jars, bamboo pencil holders and ceramic dishes hold items on the shelf.
I painted the peg board a bright color to avoid the 'garage' look. To see it in living color and read more about my studio makeover visit my blog.
*Expenses for the peg board display only - there were shelves, plastic bins and a broken window that added up!
