In my quest to become a more crafty and budget-conscious lady, I decided to take on the task of creating an entryway organizer. Inspired by this post on Apartment Therapy, I created this:
1 piece of wood 5.5" x 18" (3/4" thick)
1 piece of wood 2.5" x 18" (3/4" thick)
1 piece of wood 11" x 18" (3/4" thick)
2 wood screws 1 1/2" long
Sand paper (1 medium and 1 fine grit)
Pencil and Pen
(please pardon the shoddy iphone photography)
Choosing and cutting the wood at our local hardware store.
Sanding all the wood (medium grit then fine grit)
Three coats of white paint (the name of the color is Sheep's Wool, which pretty much sealed the deal)
Painting over the stencil (my favorite part!)
The finished stencil on the organizer backing.
Each piece of glued together and clamped overnight to set.
Sanding off the center stencil to re-paint in preparation for the hook rack.
Centering the hook rack
Prepping the organizer to hang on the wall
Making sure it's level
