Craft Room Peg-board...

Every craft room should have a pegboard. This is the conclusion I have come to after using mine for the past few weeks. It is probably the most functional part of this room besides the desk. I never knew having supplies at your fingertips could make such a difference in the time it takes to make something and clean it back up.

This was another one of the projects that we got started when my brother in law was visiting. Very simple to do. We bought a piece of 4x4 pegboard at Lowe's. He then screwed 2 pieces of wood to the wall along the studs.
Next he screwed the pegboard into the other boards. ( There has to be space between the pegboard and the wall for the hooks to attach.)

I am a "matchy-matchy" type of person, so I decided I wanted to tie in the color of the craft cabinet (click here to see it) on the other side of the room. I ended up taping off large squares and painting every other one Escape (the same color I used on other projects.)

I had a hard time finding cool hardware to use on it, but the main purpose is function not beauty, so in the end I just got a pack of pegboard hooks from Lowe's for under $10.

Once I got all my stuff piled on it, it looked pretty good. The white shelf you see under it, used to be in an office and held forms. It was on its way to the trash when I saw it and thought it might work here. I didn't paint it or anything. It is all rough and chipped, but I love it just the way it is. It is perfect for my fabric storage.

I miscounted all my projects, so I will be posting about the whole craftroom tomorrow instead of today and putting up pics of the everything then. So what do you think of the checked pattern? I can't decided whether I should paint the whole thing white to match the cabinet holding my fabric, or leave it.
** Update*** I am linking up this post to DIY Thursday at ASPTL, and for those of you wondering, I decided to leave the pegboard as it.

I love the check pattern. Don't paint it white! That color blue is so perfect for your craft room and I think it works so well especially since your entertainment center is that same color. I can't wait for tomorrow. I'm really wanting to create a craft room for myself now!

Super cute and how easy. Thanks for the tip on this. Great Idea. I may have the hubs do this for me in our basement. I love the color with the brown. I have a lot of craft supplies this would sure help me organize.

I like the checks on the pegboard, but you kinda loose the impact of the paint with everything hung on it.

A friend of mine sent me your blog because of your WWWednesday posts -- I'm about 3 weeks in almost 10 pounds down. Enjoying reading your journey.

Michelle said...

Looking forward to seeing more of your craftroom!

I like the pattern. It fits well. Your room seems to be turning out really well and I can't wait to see the finished project. Great work. Oh and I'm thinking of getting some beadboard and putting it on the back of an old bookshelf. Wish me luck.

I've never been one for pegboards but after seeing how well everything is displayed on yours, my mind is starting to change. I'm more of a put it away and hide it kind of girl. Looking at the shots of your craft room, I feel like I'm looking into a really cool craft store. It's just so great! And, your pegboard colors match your blog background! Keep the check pattern and colors!
