Homemade ClipItUP

Posted: July 24, 2008 in Scrapbooking

Thanks to the ladies on 2peas for the inspiration.  Initially the rod was attached directly to the wall but it didn’t stick out far enough for my items to hang sideways.  Imstead I drilled large holes in the shelf brackets and fed the curtain rod through.   I found the rod on clearance at Joann’s.  The clips are also from JoAnn’s.  The shelf is one I got awhile ago at Target.  Now I wish I had used a larger shelf and bar.  I may still add another one somewhere else in the room.  I just love how much this thing holds and how easily accessible it makes all my rubons.  I am considering taking on of my pegboards off the wall since this system seems to be a more inefficient use of space and even provides a horizontal surface to store stuff.



I also hung some layouts that have been published.

    Cool- looks like one I saw where the lady made it all herself using washers and paperclips to hold it. I’ll try and dig it up and share… maybe also orginally from 2 peas.

    I think your homemade clip it up is awesome! And such a better use of space than the spinny one!
