Overview

Keep your tools ordered and accessible with our D.I.Y. pegboard tool organiser. Perfect for your next project, you'll be thanking yourself later.

Steps

1Frame it

Cut two pine lengths to 1220mm and two to 877mm to frame behind the pegboard. Butt the short lengths against the long ones at the ends, countersink two holes in each joint. Secure with 30mm screws.

2Secure your frame

Position the pegboard over the frame with the edges flush, then secure with 30mm screws, drilling into the pine through existing holes. Space the screws with three on the sides and four on the top and base.

3Smooth over the edges

If the edges don't line up, use a random orbital sander with 60-grit abrasive discs to smooth back the sides, then finish all over with 180-grit discs, removing any breakout around the screws.

4Apply your paint

4. Wipe off dust with a cloth then apply two coats of paint with a mini roller, painting around the edges; leave to dry between coats. Leave to cure for a few days. Tip: using chalkboard paint lets you mark out where your tools are. 

Tip: To clean chalkboard paint, never use water. Instead, use cola (not diet), soaking a clean cloth to rub all over the board.

5Attach to your wall

Position the frame against the wall, mark the location of corresponding wall studs along the top and use the supplied screws to attach L-shaped angle brackets inside the frame, then secure the frame to the wall.

Tip: Adding tools can make the organiser heavy, so always secure into wall studs. To wall mount the tool organiser, secure heavy-duty L brackets into the studs, facing up. Employ a second pair of hands to rest the organiser on them while you secure and add brackets along the top and down the side.

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.
