Tuesday Tangle - Tangled up in a Re-do

I may be absent from blogging but I haven't been absent from spring cleaning and re-doing my home office/jewelry studio. It's a slow process, trying to squeeze out some extra time from my already over-scheduled day. You might remember the cleaned out home office I showed you a couple weeks ago. Added to the picture below is a white pegboard my husband put up for me.


Last weekend, I had a whole day to myself so I spent the time running between home and the hardware store to buy just the right pegboard components to mount my jewelry tools and chain

You may notice the grouping of butterflies I added over the pegboard.  I love the wall decals you can buy on Etsy to add interest to a wall of your favorite color.  You can't really see the butterflies that are on the sheer curtains in the picture above this one but the wall decals carry on that theme.

I collected all my pliers and cutters to put on the pegboard. It's funny how you don't realize how many tools you have until they are all in one place!

Thinking of adding a pegboard to your workspace? I found a nice how-to on eHow that will help you. If you'd rather buy them yourself? Here's some colorful options made of metal from Wall Controland here's a list of places from eHow.

I put up a pegboard too (I have one on the other side of my studio for quilting things) but I really like how you organized yours - I may be changing some things. Thanks for the inspiration.

I really like the pegboard! The butterflies add a nice touch as well.

Thanks for the comments! Such a simple thing but it really does help me alot. I like to have everything out where I can see it but it usually ends up in a mess. The pegboard is a good solution for me.

That is quite a good looking peg board! I always have trouble finding the exact right size holders but yours look just right. Butterflies are a nice touch.
