Wooden Labelled Organizer…

January 21, 2013
 So… I was laying in bed the other night… scrolling through Pinterest on my phone when I found a neat little cubby organizer… I clicked on the picture to check out the source… the source was a sweet little website tutorial!.. SCORE!.. The next morning Pickle and I got up and headed to Home Depot to pickup supplies so that I could make this beauty!..
Check out this amazing website ChalkBoard {Blue} for the tutorial… materials list… cut list… great instructions…
It took longer to finish the wood than it did to prep all of the cuts and to nail the thing together!..
Broke out the measuring tape and square!.. got serious on this bad boy…
Pickly helped me with cutting the thin strips of plywood… I did all of the mitre saw chopping… and Chris helped me to secure the last board to ensure that everything was lined up!..
I’m so stoked on this!.. I can’t wait to make another… I think the next one will have a solid colour paint job… I love the weathered barn board look but it took so long to paint and sand and distress and stain!.. 😛
OH!.. These label holders!?… they came from Staples… We tried two Michaels and they had nothing… we went into Staples on a whim Pickle found these Martha Stewart Stick on Label Holders!… he knows what I like!…
Seriously… this was a dream to make!… really a one day project if you’re going with some solid coloured wood!… if you’re going with any sort of faux finish or specialty finish then the wood prep will take longer and you should probably do this project over two days… I’m so stiff and sore and a little bruised at the moment!… I was working on the floor in the basement!… hahaha… but it was worth it!…

    It looks fab. What kind of expense did you have in this project. Dianntha

  • Lacey January 22, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    ohiofarmgirl – it was about $35 in wood total! and then another $25 in the little stick on metal label holdres! And I have some wood adn a few tags left over! I had the glue, paints, brad nailer and aircompressor and other wood working tools in my supplies already.
