I started out with just “Jet Max Cubes” and a glass top table from Ikea
I love Ikea!!!!!
I tried to keep them up on a bulletin board but before you know it they get hidden.
The other day I was with my BFF (Phyllis) @ where else Ikea and found these semi-clear (frosted) dry erase glass boards. Ok, I bought one on the spot and had to go back and get the second.
I start out by cutting/folding/manipulating newspaper to the exact size of the object I want to hang. Then I tape it to the wall and rearrange until I get what I want.
Pull out the Tom Girl drill gun (love this) and the hardware (or plastic in this case).
The Tom Girl drill is a “Compact Drill”. What that means is it gives you a little help in screwing things in.
You could dress it up by putting some decorative paper behind it (that is the way Ikea had theirs displayed) but I like to see the color of the paint coming through and it makes it feel transparent.
The nice thing about this hardware is there is room to adjust and have a little play. I get one installed (then I can place a level across the top). This ensures I’m on line for the next hardware to be screwed in the wall.
Now I have everything in place, a place for “To Do” for the house, “To Do” for craft projects and my schedule for various items I want to do. A place to hold notices and other items I want to have handy.
Now I need to do something with this old ceiling fan (26 years old to be exact) maybe a Chandelier?……Ikea has one that will fit this room perfectly. Would that be appropriate a “Woman Cave” with a Chandelier……….yes, oh yes adding this to my “To Do” Home project list, cost about $40!
By the way the opinions are my own, I’m not getting paid by anyone to say nice things about their products.
