I've been working on organizing my shipping station for a while now, the first project I did was the frame to organize orders, washi tape, bakers twine and other goodies. Ken helped me by making a custom table for me to organize my paper, shipping rolls, and mailers. The new table was designed to go side by side with an old dresser we had in our bedroom but that didn't fit anymore, so now with both of them my work surface is bigger and I have space to set one of my printers and use the rest as my wrapping desk.
I used a wood dowel that I painted white to organize my spools or baker's twine and a small kraft wrapping paper roll. I used a wire mesh behind the frame, and with the same mesh and cage wire clips, I made make small containers sized to fit all the small items I wanted to organize in the frame. Since the edges of my boxes were pretty rough, I added pink yarn around the top edges of the containers.
I also made covers for both printers and added white shelving paper on the top of the dresser and shipping storage table. You can see some additional pictures of how the station is shaping up.
I'm pretty happy considering I spent $20 on the material for the frame and $20 for the material for the table, all the rest were things I had around the house, paint included. So a shipping station for $40 I think it's a pretty good deal =] Read more »
