Organize your tools the Ikea way
Lots of you have noticed the railing we’ve been using for tools and we’ve had a few inquiries about it.
Sarai picked out the Fintorp system from IKEA to store our scissors and various small things. It’s made for hanging pots and pans, with little bins you can use for cutlery. But it also makes the perfect tool rack.
We have so many little things such as chalk, fabric pencils, seam rippers and larger things such as rulers that really needed a good home. We used two rails, which fit together into one long rail. This has worked really well for us since we put it up! No more searching for the right pair of scissors or the eternally-hiding seam gauge.
You can see that we’ve tied yarn to a few tools that didn’t have holes for hanging. You could do the same with pretty ribbons, lace ribbon or twill tape.
Our studio is really coming along and there are only a few things left that we need to make it feel complete. As we continue to make changes, we’ll show you little peeks. I hope to give you a tour of the studio once we’re done decorating it!
