Overview

If you have a large range of tools, it can sometimes be difficult to find what you are looking for. Hanging everything on a pegboard is a great way to maximise space and keep track of your tools easily.

Steps

1Gather your tools and materials

Below are all of the tools and materials you'll need to complete this project.
Pegboard, spirit level, safety equipment, screwdriver and various other tools.

2See what you've got

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.

3Mark out screw points

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.

4Drill pilot holes

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.

5Insert wall plugs

Once you've made all your holes, tap in your wall plugs with a hammer.

6Affix your screws

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.

7Hang your pegboard

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?

Health & Safety

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.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
