  • Satin or semi-gloss paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Frame
  • Hanging hardware: 2 D rings
  • Pegboard hardware and hook holders

Pegboard Organizer How-To

  1. Begin with a piece of pegboard. Because pegboard usually comes in large sheets, either get the board cut to fit inside your frame where you buy it or use a circular saw or a jigsaw to cut the pegboard to size at home.
  2. Paint pegboard with satin or semi-gloss paint in a color of your choice. Let dry overnight.
  3. Insert the painted pegboard into the frame and secure.
  4. Attach the hanging hardware — two D rings — to the back of the frame to hang pegboard on wall.
  5. Add pegboard hardware and hook holders to the front side of board to hold your supplies. Be sure to snap the pegboard hook holders in completely to keep the hardware from wobbling.
