Whether you’re a girlboss, or just need to get stuff done, an organized workspace is totally essential. But being organized doesn’t have to be boring! Transforming a pegboard into a desk organizer is not only functional, but can display art or motivational quotes to inspire you as well!
As for supplies, you really only need the pegboard and hooks, but I’ll show you how to customize with mason jars, a rack, and a clipboard as well!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Pegboard sheet (I used a 3’ x 4’
- Package of assorted pegboard hooks
- Pegboard rack
- Mason jars
- A clipboard
- Small clips
Prop the pegboard up on your desk and start placing your hooks for what you would like to hang or store.
First up, the rack is an awesome multi-purpose hook. It has multiple hooks if you have supplies to hang, but also doubles as a great shelf. Prop up some artwork or your favorite notebook to grab when you need it!
Everyone needs a touch of glam in their office, don’t ya think? I do. Use a couple bar hooks to create a display for your favorite statement necklace. You can also pick up a few small clamps to quickly clip a note or sketch to your pegboard.
And how perfect is this loop hook for storing scissors?! Keep it low so you can reach for them easily. Now, let’s talk about how to hang those cute mason jars shall we?
Wrap a length of string around your jar a few times. Leave a bit of slack so you can slip the hooks though, and tie a knot. Next, slip the hooks through your string.
Then just slip the hooks into the holes as you would normally and it should hang easily! You’ve got a storage solution that takes the clutter off your desktop.
Finally, if you’ve got a clipboard, slip it onto a hook to display something motivational to remind yourself of the girlboss you really are!
Just a few inexpensive supplies and an afternoon of rearranging, and you’ve got yourself a bright (and encouraging) work station! I think you’ll be ready to kill you’re to-do list in your workspace. You go girl.
