One way to help keep your house clutter-free is to have a place to put things when you walk through the door. Martha has solved this problem by outfitting her mudroom with peg racks modeled after a beautiful Shaker design.
To make your own peg rack, first decide how long you want it to be. To determine the number of pegs you will need, divide the length of the rack by 6 inches (the distance between each peg). Martha's molding is 67 inches long; so 67 divided by 6 is, roughly, 11 pegs.
