Work wall storage
What it is: Turn a wall into a storage and work space with just a few add-ons.
How to make it: Cover the top half of a blank wall with stick-on cork tiles to create an oversize pin board. Use colored tape to delineate zones for different purposes. Install a ledge beneath the cork tiles, and add a hanging rail system just below to make the wall of storage complete. For a fun bonus, paint the lower half of the wall with chalkboard paint to create a kid-friendly place to draw. This is a cheap storage solution—but remarkably attractive and effective.
