I made this nifty pegboard for my daughter’s room to try to get a handle on the massive amounts of paper children seen to produce out of thin air. I don’t know what happens: I will purge the house on Monday morning of the assorted papers from the weekend, only to find that they have multiplied and bred like a wet Gremlin by Wednesday.
Then, there’s the papers from me.
I am a “list-maker”, you know.
Between myself and my daughter, we need to plant a forest. Hopefully this pegboard will help to keep the “important” papers from being tossed into the abyss of the recycling bin…. heaven knows I have no clue what time the game is today because that paper was tossed into the bin, and now it’s a wet pile of something that possibly could be paper mache by the time the recycling boys come around.
You start with a ceiling tile. You can get a big one ( enough for two or three pegboards) at a home improvement store for 52¢.
I painted mine white. Mainly to fill in some of the “spots”, and because I didn’t have any large quantities of any colors.
You can paint yours whatever color you want. Even rainbow sparkles. 😉
I also bought these little wooden animals… now I realize this is a candy-corn colored owl. What can I say? I’m on a Fall kick lately.
The edges of the ceiling tile were framed with decorative duct tape, and a string was thread through the top for hanging.
There you have it.
Go get your craft on.
