Do you have an organized office or do you just let everything pile up? Since Autumn is a time for new School Year Resolutions I decided it’s a great time to get organized so I can also be ready for the busy upcoming holiday seasons. Check out this simple DIY Easy Upcycled Office Organizer to hang on your wall that is the perfect place to save important notes and reminders.
Upcycled Picture Frame: Office Organizer
Get your office space organized when you turn an ordinary picture frame into something fun and fresh. With a picture frame and just a few basic supplies, you can create an office organizer such as the one you see here. Take a peek below at how we created one and how you can too! In no time, you can have your office space organized.
Here is what you will need:
Large wood picture frame
Paint (spray or brush on)
Twine or ribbon
Staple gun, staples
I found the large frame used here at a local thrift shop. You can scour local thrift shops, garage sales, or your very own garage to come up with one. You only need the frame itself, so don’t worry about if the glass is intact or in good shape.
1. Begin by cleaning the frame with a damp cloth and wiping dry. Apply two coats of paint, allowing the paint to dry well in between. We used a brush on paint, but you can spray yours on if you wish. Lightly sand the dried paint if you want a distressed or vintage look.
2. Once the paint is dry, measure lengths of twine or ribbon to fit the width of the frame. This is what your pictures or paperwork will hang on. Whatever the width of the frame is, add on about 2 extra inches.
3. Secure the twine or ribbon to the backside of the frame with your staple gun. Pull it tightly as you stretch it across to secure it to the opposite side. Try to pull it straight, and apply two staples to each side to make sure it is secure.
4. Once your twine is secure to the frame, you can now use the clothespins to secure papers in place. Use the twine or ribbon as a clothesline and secure items directly to it.
If you notice your papers are sagging, simply pull the twine tightly and add another staple.
It turned out so adorable I can hardly wait to get my sewing room back again someday so I can use one of my vintage frames and make a really fancy one! The ideas are endless.
Why don’t you give this easy upcycled frame project a try! It is a great way to get your space organized! What would you hang on yours?
