Office Pegboard – DIY

I am still adjusting to being a remote employee, so its important that I have an inspiring and organized space to work from at home.  I grew up with pegboards in the garage so I know how great they can be for organizing tools and I quickly fell in love with the concept of dressing up the pegboard for inside and hanging office and craft supplies on it.

Office Pegboard – DIY
Materials

  • Pegboard
  • Paint (for the pegboard color)
  • Paintbrush
  • 6 1x 1/4 1inch scrap wood blocks
  • 6 screws
  • Drill or Screw driver
  • Peg board hooks
  • Spray paint (I recommend matching your pegboard color)

Directions

Lightly sand and Once and paint pegboard – I used two coats of white paint.  Let dry.  To hang the pegboard you will use 4-6 wood blocks to lift the board away from the wall – this way the hooks or pegs have somewhere to go.   Measure, level, and mark where you want to drill with a pencil – double check your work – and begin drilling (I used a stud finder to find and drill into the studs for maximum support).  Spray paint peg hooks – I spray painted them white so they would blend in with my board color – and decorate.

I recommend picking up the pegboard at Home Depot or a hardware store that will cut to size on site.   Lightly sand and paint to color of your choice.

Hand surrounding artwork before decorating the board – or you might find yourself knocking things down.

I found these pretty ceramic vases from one of my favorite Atlanta stores, Paris on Ponce, and filled them with air plants.
