Decorative AND Functional Wall Cubbies

You may remember the DIY potting bench I shared a few weeks ago that marked Susan from Between Naps on the Porch’s debut in the world of woodworking.

When Emily from On the V Side decided to turn her office into a usable craft space, she says there was no question the walls needed a little “pick-me-up.” Emily started with the “simplest of organizational tools” and created a corkboard for the wall.
