Pen Organization

If you know me, then you know that organization is my super power.  So, when my pen collection was taking over 4 drawers and I was having to constantly dig through them to find what I was looking for, I knew I needed a new plan.  After searching online at Office Depot, Amazon, etc. and not finding what I needed, I turned to Pinterest.   Why didn't I go there first!  Everything you could ever want or need is on Pinterest......right!  I found these cool looking pen organization units made with PVC pipe and asked my hubby if he could make it for me.  Off to Lowe's to buy the pipe, he sawed them to the length I needed (5 inches - so that the pens would stick out for easy access) and then glued them together with PVC glue.  The ones I saw on Pinterest just stood on their own or were placed in a bin on its side.  Doug wanted to make one better looking then that, so he stained a piece of wood and hot glued the PVC tubes to it.  He then put legs on the back so it would stand up with the weight.  It is now located to the left of my drawing table and I just have to reach over and grab the pen I need.  I love it!  Thanks, honey!

  1. Yours is somewhat fancier than mine. I use toilet and paper towel rolls

  2. Cool! I made something similar to this, a few years back, for my colored pencils, but I made it out of TP rolls Works great so I think I'll make another one for my pens. Thanks for the share:).LOL!
