Wood and pipe stencil storage hooks

In my quest to further organize my little photo studio, I have a new industrial pipe project I didn’t even realize I was going to make!

My photo studio is a small room filled with windows that I use for photographing DIY projects and stencil products.

So I like to have a few tools, paint supplies and stencils nearby for when I create step-by-steps.

Since I had just painted the photo studio floor white HERE and hung new sheet curtains on pipe rods HERE, I wanted to keep the inside of the studio at a minimum this round so there’s lots of room to stage props.

I currently store all my stencils on THIS STENCIL TROLLEY but it ate up a little too much space.

So I came up with a compact way to just bring a few stencils into the studio at a time while I work with them, utilizing this small little corner!

And it turned out so cool!

If you’re searching for an easy and compact stencil storage solution yourself, this may work for you too!

How-to:

.

1. Cut 3 planks to desired length, then lightly sand.

My planks measure:

2. Position 1 board at the height desired, then with a level on top, insert one screw into the centre. Tap the board until level, then add more screws to secure the board.

Attach the boards to a wall stud if possible. If not, you can use wall anchors if you think your stencil hooks will hold lots of weight.

Adding pipe hooks

.

3. Screw the pipe fittings together, then attach to the centre of the middle plank with short screws.

Each hook was created with ½” pipe fittings of:

  •  flange x 2
  •  elbow join x 2
  •  ½” x 4″ long straight pipe x 2

The finished hook!

And just like that, your wood and pipe stencil storage hooks are ready to load!

I also hung a galvanized container filled with stencil brushes to keep them within reach. Super handy!

Need more than one hook? Create another wood and pipe hook above the one you just installed to take full advantage of the wall height!

I spaced the bottom hook higher off the floor to allow for longer stencils, and the higher hook  positioned for smaller stencils.

It works perfectly!

Stencil merchandising idea

.

Do you happen to sell stencils? Here’s a merchandising idea!

Use a pant hanger or curtain ring with clip to hang stencils facing towards you. I think this looks really cool!

Need more? Imagine a row of pipe hooks attached to long lengths of boards for a full wall. Anyone have a store I can play with?!

On white chippy boards

.

And here’s one more look using white chippy wood!

This was actually my original idea, however I decided to turn the boards over to stay with the woodsy look which chimed in better for my studio.

The boards are abundant enough to hang other stencil accessories on it as well, such as masking tape and a ruler.

  1. Great idea to store stencils. I think a while back I got the idea from the way you hung your stencils to do the same. So much easier and practical. And the biggest thing is they’re not getting crushed or wrinkled in a drawer. Love the addition of the pipe.
