Boy Room - DIY Wall Organizer


I've been working on some projects but haven't been able to finish them, and the ones I'm done with, I can't post yet. 
Then, there are some other projects that look like I'm never going to finish them!

So, last Saturday I really didn't know what to do. I had to do stuff in the garden, finishing organizing the garage, picking and organizing all what I'm going to bring to the flea market...
And of course I wasn't even thinking about the regular household chores that always keep on piling up.

What did I do?
NOTHING!

It was a rainy morning, the computer was the most appropriate thing to grab. 
Then, in the afternoon when the day cleared up, I couldn't help it! Sunlight was purring through the window in my son's room so, I stayed there and forgot about all the tasks and instead laid there on his bed and then took some more pictures of the room.

This post about the wall organizer was shared over at Lil'Luna at the end of February. I'm so glad to share it with you today because I think is the one project that has kept my son from throwing his clothes onto the floor. REALLY!

I need to do something similar in my daughter's room, and PRONTO! That girl is driving me nuts.
It's an easy project - a frame done with 1 x 2's, separated in the middle by 1 x 4's.  You can follow the plan for exact dimensions, but the beauty of DIY work is that you can customize it to your own specifications.


Pocket hole joinery (Kreg Jig) was used to put together the frame.


Metal cloth was stapled to the back of the two lower sections to give it an industrial look.


Just like that it was mounted on the wall, onto the studs or using anchors if needed.


In order to give the frame some more dimension, the hooks were mounted onto another piece of wood-
I got the hooks at Marshalls. I even used the little metal plaque that came on one of the planks.


Once the hooks were on, the two pieces were brought in and installed on the frame.


I love the rustic feel they have.


This vintage lunch box fits so well here. This was the present my daughter gave to her brother upon the completion of the room makeover. It now holds shoe cleaning supplies.


A poster of his latest obsession: Rocket League was the one that gave us the needed dimensions for the frame, well, at least the width.




As usual, I cannot leave you without the before and after. I love how the ceiling looks like its higher than before!
