Materials: Bygel Rail, S hooks, Bygel wire basket, Bygel buckets
Description: I was looking for a good way to organize my ribbon and other craft items I needed close at hand over top of my desk. After some Pintrest-ing, I found a great use for the Bygel rail kitchen system – I’ve found it to be very effective in keeping things organized and “put away”, but still accessible when I need it.
I used two of the Bygel rails – one 55cm once and one 100 cm one. I attached them to the wall where I wanted them over my desk. I then attached the wire baskets to them as directed and placed all of my ribbon spools in them. I used to S-hooks for hanging items such as scissors and a paint can opener. The Bygel bucket keep things like writing utensils and paint brushed close at hand. Even some paper punches slide into the top of the rail and I have seen them used exclusively as storage for punches as well.
A simple hack – but incredibly useful in my opinion.
