To make an art and homework station in this happy playroom, designers added a wooden countertop (in eye-catching cherry red) that rests atop two sets of built-in drawers. Hanging metal bins hold pencils, notebooks and more for clutter-free imagining.
Measure board, evenly spacing desired number of hooks or knobs to hold three to six stockings. Mark each spot with pencil. Drill pilot holes in pencil marks and insert knobs. Hang on nails secured in studs or screws and anchors. Always use caution and wear safety glasses when working with power tools. Tip: Use knobs with a flat screw backing so shelf will hang flat against wall.
