DIY_Pegboard Organizer

DSC_0782 Today I found this scrap of pegboard in the wood shop at my school, and I knew I had to make something with it! I decided to go for the most typical use for the material--an organizer. But, I was in desperate need of a way to store all of my bracelets so I couldn't resist!

You will need some pegboard, a drill, 2 screws, and these long strips of hooks which I found at Home Depot for about 2 bucks each.

Simply screw the pegboard into your wall at the top corners. Don't screw all the way into the wall because when you slide in the hooks, they will need to rest against the wall.

Slide in the hooks into the holes. I offset mine for an asymmetrical look.

Finally, hang up your jewelry! You can also use the holes to hang up longer earrings.

And here's the finished product! I'm so happy with this and it was really fast to hang up.

OOTD 71_"Timing is Everything"

DSC_0418 Today's #coasttocoastchallenge was "Winter Whites," which had me realize, I really don't have that much white in my wardrobe. However, I still decided to incorporate some white into my outfit, especially because I've been excited to wear this new sheer blouse I recently got at TJ Maxx. I love the skull detail and think it looks like a top that would be from Brandy Melville, but was only 15 bucks! For another pop of white, I grabbed this grommet-studded clutch that is super cute and worked with the white theme. I've had this baby literally since middle school, and think it's great that it still works with my style!

The track for today's outfit is a song by one of my favorite artists. I listen to this album typically when I work in studio. The song is "Timing is Everything" by Lights. Listen along here while you view, and maybe discover some new music!

DSC_1223 After making this skull tee last night, I needed to wear it right away. Today Jake and I were headed to Trader Joe's so we could make lunch and also worked on some upcoming DIY projects for the holiDIY series! Tonight we're headed to the record store, so I was sure to bring a warm jacket. I picked this denim one up from Goodwill yesterday while I was shopping for tees and fabric for projects. I like the throwback vibe of this outfit and completed it with some old patterned Keds to tie the whole look together.

DSC_1297 copy It has been drizzly and cold all weekend, so today I biked downtown to meet my friends at our favorite coffee shop to keep warm and work on some essays because we are applying for study abroad! I dressed in dark neutrals that went well with my DIY studded denim vest and creepers that I felt I hadn't worn in a while. I also took my own photos today, which I sometimes I enjoy doing because I feel like I can capture a certain mood that I'm trying to convey.
