DIY Art Supply Pallet

It’s been way too long since my last DIY post and I’m here to remedy that!  I’ve been in one of those moods lately where everything in my house needs an upgrade.  This is a relatively common occurrence (annoyance, if you ask my husband) once I’ve finished an area.  I’ll finish a space, love it for a few weeks and then want to change it.  Maybe it’s the perfectionist in me but I prefer to think of it as the “perpetual need to be creative-ist” in me.  That’s totally a thing…

One of these spaces that has incurred my creative wrath is Gav’s art table/creative learning corner.  I decided that I wanted to reorganize his art supplies in a way that didn’t put a million tiny holes in the wall.  I tried using those little plastic drawers but Ro quickly showed me that those made it much easier for him to eat crayons.  That’s when I came up with this super simple, inexpensive and minimal wall damage project.

What You’ll Need: Large Wooden Pallet, IKEA Hanging System and Containers, 4 Screws

You can, of course, make this pallet yourself.  It’s a pretty straight forward design but I had a coupon and got this one from Michael’s.

Lay out your containers to see where to place the hanging bars then attach the bars to the pallet.  Hang your baskets and fill them.

You’re done!  This was so simple that I have no idea why I didn’t do it sooner.  Now, if I happen to change my mind again, the whole thing comes off the wall in one piece.
