Good morning and Happy Memorial Day!!! I have spent the past week working on the pegboard for my office. And, let me tell you, deciding what to put on this little organizing jewel was a lot harder than I thought. Actually, I haven't even gotten half way finished with it yet.
But, I wanted to share the parts I have finished with everyone...
I purchased the pegboard material from Lowes. For $16.94, I got a huge 4-in x 8-in. sheet. I had them cut it into four smaller identical pieces. I used one of the four pieces for this project and I am still trying to decide what to do with the other three.
I also purchased the wood for the back supportive structures at Lowes. They were located on the same aisle as the pegboards. I prepared the backing by priming one of the four sides and then spray painting that side. I only painted one side to save on paint, since you would only be able to see one side.
If you notice, after I connected the backing, I needed to paint the edges of the pegboard. Even though I spray painted the front, the edges were still their natural color. So, I spent a few hours fixing this small issue.
And, here is the finished product on the wall. We used nails and the top edge of the backing to hang the pegboard on the wall.
The pegboard is still a little wet in these photos. That is why you are seeing a little shine on the front.
I purchased the pegboard hooks below at Wal-Mart in the hardware section for $4.98.
I also purchased skewers at Wal-Mart for around $1.98 to use to hang ribbon on the pegboard.
The picture below is the box where my ribbon used to be stored. As you can see, it was a complete mess.
I held the rounded edge of one of the skewers and stacked the ribbon through it. Then, I used two 2" single hooks to hang the skewer on the pegboard.
Tomorrow, I will show you how I added some soup cans to the mix.
