Gift Wrap Station

I've been wanting to complete this little project for many months, so I decided yesterday that I would make myself a Gift Wrap Station and I just LOVE it! Funny, that it's been in the back of my mind for so long, and it only took a few hours to actually complete {the longest part was waiting for the paint to dry.} Why did I push it off for so long? It feels so great to finally have it done.

This area is located in my craft room closet & is SO much BETTER than before. Just wait, my next post will show you the before & afters of this closet. Also, more Craft Room Organizing Coming SOON - Follow my blog to stay updated. Here is my little Gift Wrap Station:
 Quite a while back, I seen this awesome idea in a Lowes catalog & I had to make one. 
I changed it up a bit to the way I wanted.
 I painted the peg board black 
 and got some inexpensive cafe curtain rods and attached them
{when I want to change the wrapping paper, the rod simply lifts off}
Genius huh? Thanks to Lowes for this great idea!
These awesome containers are from Ikea 
{they're located in the kitchen organizing department}
 I used pegboard hooks to hang them. They hold my scissors & tape
Aren't they just adorable?

I store larger rolls of wrapping paper & cellophane wrap between the bookcase & the shelf
on the shelves of the bookcase I store:
and
storing larger boxes on the side of the bookcase 
These are the boxes that don't fit in the bin.
My curling ribbon
are on a spring loaded curtain rod
extended from one wall of the closet to the other.
{kind of like the way a shower curtain works}
I simply can't wait to wrap a gift in my new gift wrap station.
If the bookcase was a bit deeper {more like a table} it would be absolutely perfect. 
That way I could cut a piece of wrapping paper off, and wrap right underneath the peg board.
As I am doing things as inexpensive as possible, I have to use things that I already have.
The bookcase use to be in my toy closet and NOW it has a new home.
and I LOVE it!
That's a WRAP folks!

  13. How very Martha that is, I love it. My two oldest have moved on from gifts to gift cards, so I find I do not even buy wrapping stuff except for Christmas. I do love the peg board idea for many other uses in my scraproom and the ikea cups that hang are just adorable.

  14. absolutely love it! I am so into wrapping pretty gifts but always have to run out and get new paper cause mine is all wrinkled, get new ribbon cause mine is all tangled and new tape cause I'm constantly losing mine! I so cannot not wait to build with your ideas in mind:)

  22. Just saw this, very cute! What about a drop top that would cover the plastic bins when it is down, and then you lift it up and it has brackets underneath on the sides. You could take scrap wood to make the top and make it pretty easily, I think. Paint it a pretty color or use contact paper on top. Maybe it would hinge to the bookcase. Do you understand what I'm trying to describe? My other idea would be to install something on sliders, to push in and pull out, but I dont' think that would give you enough space.
