I got you pegged

Not gonna lie, my fabric covered peg board is something to behold.
AND, I'm gonna tell ya how to make one for your very ownself.

Materials needed:
  • pegboard
  • frame
  • spray adhesive
  • fabric, wrinkle and crease free
  • scissors
  • iron
  • pegboard hooks
  • awl
Find a frame.

Purchase some pegboard at a lumberyard or Lowe's or Home Depot. Or totally luck out like me (because People Give Me Stuff) and snag brother-in-law's leftover pegboard material.

Cut pegboard to fit inside your frame. (Don't install pegboard into frame yet.)

Walk yourself outdoors with a can of spray adhesive. Spray the pegboard with adhesive.

Carefully smooth your fabric over the tacky pegboard. Get it right the first time because there isn't much forgiveness between the fabric and glue. Trim excess fabric.

Install the pegboard into your frame. Stand in awe of your near wonderful creation.

Install two Gorilla hooks to balance and level your framed pegboard.

Now we're getting to the fun part. Drag a finger across the fabric to select a pegboard hole. Grab your handy awl and gently poke through the hole. Aggressive poke-age will result in stretched and unfortunate fabric puckering.

Insert a pegboard hook.

Start filling that mutha'!

Don't forget to add a disco ball, fool!

With remaining pegboard material,
I repeated the procedure for
three smaller framed pegboards.

I love! You have so many great (wh)organizational ideas! I wish you were my neighbor....but then I'd be embarrassed when you saw the mess I call my work area. I am printing out some of your photos to put on my wish board. Thanks for sharing. The fabric covered peg board is so much prettier than painting it some bland color. Don't you love Wasabi Peas? All that tasty, crunchy, spicy goodness in a fabulous container to be used at a later date.

Never thought of covering a pegboard. Yours look great.
