The third and final room on the upper right side of the house is coming along nicely. We have deemed this last bedroom the Craft/Art room. Oh and wrapping room. Every wrapping station needs a wrapping paper holder. Probably the easiest DIY project around. And a super cute and a fun way to display all that fun wrapping paper.
For the holder we purchased 4 small backing pieces to secure it to the wall, two side pieces and 10 dowels.
For the two side pieces, one straight 1" x 4" x 8' board was cut into two 42" pieces at Lowes, and two 1" x 2" x 8' whiteboard were cut to make four 42" lengths for backers. After letting the paint cure (Flirty Fuchsia by Sherwin Williams and a coat of PolyUrethane,) the backer pieces were mounted at studs just under 12" apart (measuring exactly 42" to the top, then we used a Kreg pocket hole jig to drill holes in the side pieces at the positions of the backers, and used a spade bit to drill holes for the dowels at 4" intervals (top of dowel to top of dowel. The dowels measure just under 3/4" and were stained gray.
The rack was mounted directly above the counter top space so that I could reach all the way to the top. So cute huh! A dedicated space just to wrap gifts. I even picked up extra scissors and tape that are on the side.
Stay tuned for more craft room updates including this cool worktop space.
