Hello! I wanted to share one of those short and sweet projects that I asked my Dad to build.
We’d designed and built some wall organizers to hold papers, files, and keys.
He used various pieces of plywood, and simple trim. I added the hooks from the home improvement store.
Then we got a request for a custom organizer for a teen girl’s room. She needed a place to pin up photos in addition to a place for papers and keys.
We got the dimensions, and Dad used the same basic principles to construct this.
My memory has failed to recall exactly which Minwax stain I used here – I believe it was Dark Walnut. I’ve used that shade on lots of things before and I really like it. I may have also used a coat of Red Mahogany. I finished it with water-based Polycrylic in satin finish, two coats. Dries in a snap.
Then I added dark cork tiles, which I cut using a craft knife, and simply glued in place. They weren’t as wide as I needed, so I butted two tiles up next to one another and it worked out just fine.
Once the stain and poly were dry, I stenciled the girl’s name on.
The customer was thrilled with how this turned out, and so was I!
Thanks for stopping by!
