Another pegboard option, this office supply organizer utilizes a neutral pallet of only three colors and repeating horizontal elements to create cohesion and simplicity.
Your organization station will hide away plenty of clutter, but you don’t want it to LOOK cluttered.
This modern plywood pegboard is a great way to add organization to your wall while still looking high style.
Use jars and catchalls on the shelves and hang calendars, papers and more from hooks in the holes.
