It’s only fitting that my first post of the new year involves getting organized (yet still food-related). It is a standing resolution of mine every year. One of my responsibilities is keeping the storage closets in order. My baking supplies have gradually taken over one of the closets. So, I finally got off my duff and did something about it.
Somehow, I’ve amassed quite the collection of cookie cutters. And I’m not a huge sugar cookie baker, so I don’t know why I have so many. I saw the idea of a pegboard on Annie’s site over a year ago. What a brilliant idea! I’m not the most handy person around the house, so I looked for further instructions on how to install pegboard on a wall. I found these detailed instructions, and decided it was easy enough for even me to accomplish. For supplies, I used:
- two 1×2 inch wood planks
- pegboard cut to specific dimensions
- drywall anchors and corresponding screws
- additional screws and washers
- paint (I used Valspar’s Spun Honey)
- paint roller and tray
I got really ambitious and co-ordinated the cutters and labeled all the hooks. Not that I know exactly which cutters I have, I may actually start using them!
