There is nothing more frustrating when crafting or making than knowing you have what you need, but you can’t find it! I read a quote once that stated “if you can’t find it, you don’t own it!” I think of that often when I can’t find something and have to buy again in order to start or finish a project.
Although we have lots of craft/maker supplies for Mother Daughter Projects stored at Steph’s house, they were becoming more and more inaccessible due to lack of organized storage. Over Christmas Steph decided she had had enough of the mess and started to digitally put together an idea to install an organizational system into the closet in her Lego room. The closet we are working with is 86" wide x 96" tall x 23" deep.
Seeing that everything we wanted to use was from The Home Depot, we reached out to them to see if they wanted to partner with us on the project. We felt it had universal appeal to others like us who wanted to buy and install pre-made components to get the job done fast!
We are calling this a semi-DIY because we are not actually building anything. With the exception of cutting a few pieces of closet rod, all the other components are ready to be installed and come with all their parts to get the install done.
Please watch the video above to see how it came together, and get more details below!
These wall control pegboard panels were really easy to install. We first found and marked the wall studs then found the center of the closet and centered the first panel on that. Any panel that didn't fall on a stud got a wall anchor and screw. Once the first one was up, it was a really fast install after that.
We decided to bring our new Ryobi cordless wet/dry vac to help clean up the space. It was so nice not to have to search for an outlet since there wasn't one nearby. It worked as well as a corded version, which really surprised us as well as how light and easy it is to carry and maneuver in our small space.
Using pre-made components for this project meant is was finished and ready for use in a very timely matter. Yes, we could have built cabinets and cut our own shelving, but that would have added more time to the project. As we were anxious to get all our stuff organized we decided to semi-DIY this project with pre-made components.
We were very impressed with the ease of install of the Wall Control pegboard panels. This is a family owned company out of Georgia that has been in business since the sixties with the Wall Control brand founded in 2002. Everything is made in America!
We ordered everything online at HomeDepot.com, and the items not in store were shipped to the store for free. We received notification when the items were in the store. It was VERY convenient to do it this way. When you have stuff shipped to the store, pick up is at the front desk. If it's something heavy, they bring it to you and will even put it in the car for you!
