...and the new color is...purple!
In our visit to Wall Control last fall, we were told that work was underway to bring two new colors to the Wall Control line up. Earlier this month, we got word that the new new colors were in production and a sample would be coming our way!
Since purple pegs are not available yet, they sent along some color peg possibilities. It was a no brainer for us to choose the blue!
Follow along as we share our install of one of the two new colors. (P.S., pink is also available now!)
This is a little hack I discovered halfway into the install. I was having trouble marking the screw holes with a pen and thought there had to be a better method. I didn't have time to make a marking tool, but discovered one of our new Bosch spade bits would work quite nicely to mark the drill hole. I simple put the spade bit into the panel hole, gave it a quick tap, and moved onto the other five! We found it to be way more accurate to mark the hole this way.
The finished wall. It's a beautiful sight! That long row of shelves was an important part of this Wall Control set up. If you look at our BEFORE picture, you'll see the shelf with the screw jars. We've gotten very used to the convenience of that set up and wanted to recreate it with Wall Control. We originally had the screw jars sitting on top, but realized, DUH, the shelves are metal. We added some rare earth magnets to the jar tops and now they store easily under the shelves. That leaves more room for other things!
I wished we had shown you an overview of the entire garage because finishing up the Wall Control wall set up an entire garage clean up! We were able to free up a lot of space in the garage once we moved our tools to the wall and out of their makeshift storage places.
The best thing about the wall is that we can see everything thing we have. Things are easy to locate AND to put back!
