A completed pegboard tool holder mounted on a brick wall

Overview

Learn how to easily install a pegboard in your shed to neatly store and display your tools. We'll show you how to attach a solid timber frame to a brick wall. You'll learn how to attach a pegboard to the frame. We'll show you how to mark where each tool goes so you can easily see when tools are missing.

Steps

1Attach the timber frame to the wall

Use the Hammer Drill to drill a hole into the brick. Insert ‘spaghetti' or a wall plug into each hole. This gives the screws something to bite into. Pre drill a hole in each end of the timber. Insert the screw through the timber and into the hole in the brick and screw it in place. Repeat to fix each end of the top and bottom frame timber to the wall.

2Insert your struts to the frame

Mark where each end of your pegboard will sit and position the timber struts. Use your spirit level to make sure everything is lined up. Then drill through timber into the brick using your Hammer Drill. Make sure you drill into the centre of the brick and not the mortar. Tap a piece of spaghetti through the hole. Then drill the rest of the holes for the struts and screw them to the wall.

3Mount your pegboard on the timber frame

Mount your pegboard on the timber using 30mm chipboard screws. Make sure your frame is flush with the edges of the pegboard. Add in more screws at the bottom. If you have a particularly long pegboard it's a good idea to add some screws in the middle as well.

4Place and mark around your tools

Place pegs into the holes in the pegboard and hang your tools. Once you have arranged all your tools use a black marker to draw around each tool. This way you'll always know where to put them and if any tools are missing.
