make a huge difference in your house by organizing with pegboard

by respaced on February 24, 2012


Pegboard is pretty easy to come by — we found ours for free along the side of the road last summer! It’s relatively simply to install, yet it makes a world of difference in rooms that hold lots of tiny things such as craft rooms, garages and pantries. Any Home Depot or other builder’s supply store stocks all the little hooks, bars and racks that fit into the holes of pegboard. Check out these pictures for inspiration for how you can make pegboard work for you in your house.

Im always worried that pegboard wont hold up or that the pegs are too annoying to deal with (they fall out). Have you come across either of these?

I love the idea of organizing office supplies and jewelry with boards.

Suggestions on where to buy pegboard? I know you have to buy a huge sheet of it at Lowes — any other ideas?

Hi Jennifer, we use pegboard out in our garage and basement and have never had problems with the little hooks and other hardware falling out. We love our pegboard! As for where to get it (besides alongside the road!), I would first check building materials resale businesses. We have a place in Portland called the ReBuilding Center that stocks used and excess building materials for super cheap. Barring that, I would check Craigslist or Freecycle. Good luck!

I have been trying to find some family room decorating ideas. I’ve heard of people putting pegboards on the walls, but I’ve never seen any this cute before. I loved these.
