List of Supplies:
Giant Peg Board - I bought mine at Home Depot for $8.98 and it's 2ftx4ft.
Moulding - found on the chair rail, base boards, wall trim isle at Home Depot. Mine was left over pieces from the new house where wall mouldings are being added. I just snagged a piece for my peg board.
White paint - or paint of your color choice. I used white wall paint I had on hand.
Mitter saw - I have a (manual) mitter box with a saw and a giant Ryobi compound mitter saw. The small hand held manual saw works great for small projects but when doing a house full of wall mouldings, etc.... a plug in giant fancy saw makes it such a breeze. So, of course, the fancy saw was used for this project because it was just that much easier.
Hot Glue Gun & (glue sticks) - I have a few types of glue guns on hand but you just need some sort of quality glue like Gorilla glue, wood glue, etc....
3-4 extra pieces of scrap wood - these are needed to elevate the back so it doesn't lay flush on the wall.
Screws - or something similar to hang your Peg Board on the wall.
The first thing I did was hot glue down 3 long pieces of extra wood (the length of my board) to the back side. I layed them inbetween the lines of peg holes so I didn't loose any hanging options. If you cover holes with your scrap wood, you loose peg holes to hang stuff from - so be careful. You can add a few scrap pieces around the board that are small, like 1 inch by 1 inch, if that's all you have on hand. You just need something on the back to keep it from laying flat on the wall. If it's laying flat on the wall then you can't add your peg hooks to it because they will hit the wall. So you need to add something to the back to keep it away from the wall. Make sense? Below is a photo of me adding my long strips of wood to the back. I layed them inbetween the rows of peg holes.
I also use peg boards in my baking cabinet (yes, everything comes back to baking here!) to keep all of my tools organized. Peg boards are SO great for organizing your stuff. Whether it's in a craft room, babies room, makeup space, garage or kitchen! I hope this tutorial inspires you to use some inexpensive peg boards to create an asthetically pleasing way for you to organize YOUR space!
