Simple and Inexpensive

I love doing simple and inexpensive projects.  Keyword on inexpensive. Even if its not simple, I can call in help from family and friends.

So, easy project for today - Scarf Organizer!

I first saw the idea for a scarf organizer from the blog Ikea Hacker. I loved the idea of it, except for using the office binder clips to hold the scarves.  But, I feel I really one upped it by what I used instead.

BYGEL rail from Ikea
S-hooks from Ikea
4 screws and anchors from my local True Value hardware store
Shower curtain rings from Target

Bam! That's it!

Now, assembly. Just measure and drill holes in the wall for the anchors. Put in anchors, grab the rail and go ahead and screw it in.  Hang the S-hooks and then just place rings on the hooks.  Pull scarves through the curtain rings and....Voila! You're done!  This project was done in about....maybe 5-10 minutes. But, it makes a huge difference for my storage of scarves and adds instant color and interest.

Here's the finished project.


  1. Very fancy! I see it's hanging right next to your wine cork board!

  2. Awesome! I have the scarf holder from Ikea, but this is a great way to display them outside of a closet!

  3. I love it! Thanks for sharing this with me. I wish I had an Ikea closer to us.

  4. LOVE this! Thanks!

  5. this...I have been looking for a nice way to display my scarves. Thanks for the share!
