Overview

Organise your home office with this handy pegboard D.I.Y. project. It will not only provide you with extra storage space, but it also looks great!

Steps

1Cut the pine to fit your pegboard

Cut the pine to two lengths of 915mm and two of 526mm. Have the pegboard sheet cut in-store or use a handsaw to cut it in half to be 915mm high and 610mm wide, then arrange the pine pieces to fit the pegboard.

2Secure the pine

Position the pegboard over the pine, edges flush, and attach it from the top with white screws, securing through the existing holes, with three screws evenly spaced down the long sides and two on the short.

3Sand and paint

Smooth along the edges and corners with 180-grit abrasive paper, removing breakout around the screws. Wipe with a clean cloth to remove dust, then use a mini roller to apply two coats of white paint.

Tip: When painting pegboard, use a roller for even coverage, but avoid overloading with paint to prevent the pegboard holes from clogging. It's best to use a primer before applying strong colours, although it's not needed for white

5Thread the wire and hang it up

Thread framing wire through both hooks, doubling it over with 100mm extra, cutting with combination pliers and twisting the excess around both strands to prevent it unravelling. Hang the display on a wall hook to stop it tipping forward.

6Your home office is complete

Be inspired by your new home office that is not only functional but adds style to your working space.
