I know, it doesn't sound all that creative, but for someone who rarely touches power tools, this was kind of cool!
So here's the situation: I wanted my craft tools close at hand, but I didn't want a ton of clutter on my table like there usually is. So I thought a pegboard on the wall would be great. But being also a very thrifty person, I realized that there already was a pegboard, 2 of them, really, on the wall of our new garage. It was old and worn and dusty, but since nobody in this house knows carpentry and was going to be using this area as a real workbench, I decided to nab it.
But how? Grabbed the power screwdriver, and got to work. These screws were encrusted pretty deep into 2 layers of wood, and my batteries were running low, so I was pretty hot and sweaty after finally pulling that sucker off the wall...
Then I had to re-attach those skinny beams on the edges of the pegboard to put some space between the board and the wall. But the holes weren't lining up right, (it's complicated!) so I'd have to drill some new holes. Power Tools!!! Woo-Hoo!!!
Then I cleaned up the board, sanded it and gave it a fresh coat of white glossy paint.
Ta-da!!! My finished product!!
And here's just a few of my artsy fartsy books.
