Pegboards, where have you been all my life? In the past if you had mentioned pegboards to me, I would have just associated pegboards to a garage organizers for power tools and supplies. I never saw them as something I would want to put in a home or consider it aesthetically appealing. Fast forward to now … I love them! I wish I could plaster all my walls with them. Why the change of mind? I was too close minded when I was younger to see the endless possibilities.
1. They work to optimize any space.
2. Extremely versatile. You can customize it for your exact needs.
3. Aesthetically pleasing. When done correctly, they can make a great design element to your space.
4. They are affordable.

This image from http://www.yellowtrace.com.au/ makes me want to cover my whole home with pegboards. This is a great example of how you do not need to fill pegboard walls with “stuff”! You can keep it clean and add small things here and there for this great look. The holes by themselves create an amazing graphic pattern that is nice and clean but make a dramatic statement. Overall, we love it!!

Create your own pegboard now!!
Here are some of the supplies to get you started:
There are a variety of pegboard options. If you want to custom paint it, I would suggest getting it raw. Please be sure to be aware of the hole size and spacing that you would like. Getting the standard hole size and distance will give you greater options for buying accessories!
Using a mounting kit like this makes it easier to put up the pegboards because the washers will do the work to create the space needed between the wall and the board.
You can find many accessories for pegboards aswell as DIY projects to even personalize your pegboards even further for your exact needs and look.
