    Framed Fun

    This pegboard that Feeling Nifty blogger Jasmine designed is actually part of an IKEA hack—a Ribba frame fits around it perfectly. Jasmine also offers some tips for those new to using pegboards in their craft spaces. "The key to storing a variety of items on your pegboard is to plan for what types of items you’ll be storing first," she advises. "If you have large amounts of one type of item (like pens, markers, or even rolls of ribbon, etc), look for bins or baskets that you can group those items in together. That way you have more space for a variety of other items. It doesn't have to cost that much, the storage section of the dollar store should have all the baskets and bins you need!'
