Organize With This: Pegboard!

February 28, 2014

Pegboard has been around for ages, however, more and more frequently it is becoming the “go-to” solution for organizing projects.  People love when storage is versatile enough to be used while keeping the end result simple and tidy. This makes pegboard the reigning solution for problematic areas around the home.  Here are a few examples of how pegboard can work hard so you don’t have to.



Never go searching for a that flathead screwdriver again!  Pegboard has been used in garages, workshops and sheds for many years as amazing tool storage.  When working on a project, digging for tools is sure to slow anyone down.  Organizing tools on pegboard will ensure they are visible and easy to find during a household emergency or even a quick DIY.


Garden Tools:

Pegboard isn’t just for building tools; use it to corral all of the tools used for gardening and yard-work by installing a system over a potting bench or in a small nook of the garage.


Craft Supplies:

If pegboards are the perfect solution for building tools, surely they can offer amazing versatility and storage for craft tools as well.  And that they do!  By mixing and matching hooks, pencil cups and even thread organizers, you can keep all of your supplies for your favorite hobbies right within arm’s reach.  Nail the pegboard inside of a decorative frame to hang it above your workspace, or frame out the back of the pegboard to install it on the inside of a cabinet door for concealed storage.  Either way, it is sure to change the way you sew and craft!


Oh Baby:

Wee ones come with a lot of gear.  Prevent rummaging for basic care necessities during late night diaper changes by installing a small pegboard near the changing station.  Because shelves, bins and clips can all be attached, they are an ideal solution for holding lotions, powders, binkies, health care items and even charming photos and mementos.




To manage a plethora of wardrobe accessories, install pegboard on a bedroom wall or within a closet space.  Anything from necklaces to scarves to sunglasses can be stored in this fashion, ensuring getting ready in the morning is easy breezy.  By dressing up the pegboard with your favorite paint color, it will allow the organization to seamlessly blend with your space.


Command Station:

For those with a lot of appointments and schedules to manage, creating a command station can offer a one-stop spot for holding invitations, memos and date cards.  By adding pencil cups and small bins, office supplies can remain right within reach for the entire family.  Pegboard clips allow you to pin up important notes, bills and correspondences.


That’s a Wrap:

Create a small station for organizing the supplies needed for wrapping gifts year round.  Pegboard hooks hold tools like scissors and tape, while bins can be installed to hold markers, pens and embellishments.  Hooks paired with cafe rods or bungee systems can be used for corralling spools of ribbons and tubes of gift wrap.


Cleaning and Maintenance:


A wall or closet filled with pegboard brings together all of the supplies used to care and maintain a home.  Hooks work wonders for holding brooms, dusters, paint brushes, scrubbers and much, much more.


In the Kitchen:

Framing out pegboard in the kitchen provides instant wall storage for daily cookware.  This provides an alternative solution when cabinet spaces is limited and is also ideal for those who love to cook and want instant access to pots, pans, lids, gadgets and utensils.


If concealed storage is much more appealing to you in the kitchen, add tall pegs to pegboard mounted in the bottom of a drawer.  The pegs can be configured to fit your dishware and prevent them from sliding around or shifting while the drawer is in use.
