Before you get started, get all your tools out and see how many you have – this will determine which sized pegboard you will need. We are using two 900x450mm boards. Some types of pegboards require a timber frame – you can get that pre-cut at Bunnings. Just ask one of our friendly staff members for assistance.
Our pegboard comes with pre-cut holes on the frame to attach screws. Use these as a guide, and mark out with a pencil where the board will hang. Use a level to make sure everything is straight – when the bubbles are centred, you're ready to go.
Once everything is marked up, use your drill to drill pilot holes for your wall plugs. Remember to pop your safety gear on for this bit – it gets loud, especially if you're drilling into masonry like we were.
Once you've made all your holes, tap in your wall plugs with a hammer.
Grab your drill and your screws and place them into the plugs. Remember to leave them sticking out about 5mm – this will allow you to slot them into the holes once the board is ready to be hung.
Grab your board and fix the screws into the pre-existing holes on the board. Grab your accessories and start hanging your tools and – voila! Everything's hung, sorted, and ready to go. How easy was that?
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
