The other day BAGM showed me this picture of a gift wrapping station and asked if I could build it.
Fortunately for me, my dad is really good at building stuff and taught me enough to survive most simple projects. BAGM decided that it should go in our home office/computer/Blue’s Clues Thinking Chair room.
We decided that instead of having a small amount of storage above a desk, we preferred having a lot of storage and would just wrap the presents on the floor. BAGM just wanted easy access to the paper that is normally buried deep in a closet or with the dust bunnies under a bed.
Here is my finished project:
I say my finished project because BAGM volunteered to paint it herself. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Anyway, the entire project cost around $20 and it only took me an hour or so to build. The dowels are 36 inches long, the main boards are 1X4s and the dowels are just hanging on cup hooks.
The tape, scissors, labels, etc. are all stored in a shelf on that dresser on the left.
I added the top and bottom border because I thought it might be nice to paint Be A Good Mom’s Gift Wrapping Station or something across the top.
