Three handy projects using pegboard

Hugely versatile pegboard is a great solution for restoring order to clutter-attracting spaces, while also working as a display tool. We’ve used this handy material in three ways: as a unique wall surface for catching hallway mess, as an office storage board meets inspiration wall (just in time for tax season!) and to keep tools ordered and accessible. Pegboard is less than 5mm thick so, regardless of the sheet size, it requires support to prevent bowing. It also needs a little room behind for hooks to slot into the holes, so it’s essential to add framework, either at the back or around the sides. For a large sheet, support the pegboard on a frame attached securely to the wall, either with anchors and bolts into masonry or through the timber wall studs.
