Lavender pegboard to keep craft supplies organized

A few weeks ago, while helping clean up an old building donated to my parents’ non-profit, I found something very exciting.

In the back of the basement, behind the other things we were moving around, was a large old green pegboard.

Step 1 – Gather supplies.

I had to collect all my tools before I could turn my ugly old green pegboard into the cute craft room storage of my dreams. And if you don’t have an old pegboard you salvaged from an older building, don’t worry. You can easily hook it up (and it probably looks a lot better than mine 😉).

Step 2 – Cut the pegboard to size if needed.

Once I gathered my supplies, I started by cutting down the Pegbird. This one was big and I wanted it to fit between the bookshelves in my new office, so I cut off a few inches here and there until it was just the right size.

Step 3 – Paint the pegboard.

After cleaning, it’s time to paint the pegboard! My craft room/home office will be a girl’s haven in a house full of boys, so I chose Behr’s Rosy Lavender.

Worried that he was running out of glue, Donnie unobtrusively attached the frame to the pegboard with wood screws from underneath.

Step 5 – Hang your beautiful pegboard!

When you’re sure the frame won’t fall off the pegboard, it’s time to hang it up!

I needed to make sure the pegboard was well supported so that it would stick firmly to the wall. I also needed to move it slightly away from the wall to make room for hanging accessories.

Donnie screwed two 1×4 boards into the wall studs to make sure they could hold the weight of the pegboard.

I then used flat wood screws to screw the pegboard into the crate behind it using the existing pegboard holes.

I applied a few coats of bright white paint to the trim and got the beautiful pegboard of my dreams.

Step 6 – Add accessories and get organized!

I had already decided which craft supplies to store on my pegboard and was looking for the perfect accessory to hold them.
