Pegboard Storage Solution

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, April 2011


Organize tools with a hanging storage station made of basic pegboard. Items will be in plain sight and within reach when needed, and everything on the pegboard is removable and adjustable, which makes changes or updates easy.


  • Pegboard

  • Circular saw or jigsaw (optional)

  • Satin or semigloss paint

  • Paintbrush

  • Frame

  • Two D rings

  • Pegboard hardware and hook holders


  1. Begin with a piece of pegboard. Because pegboard usually comes in large sheets, either get the board cut to fit inside your frame where you buy it or use a circular saw or a jigsaw to cut the pegboard to size at home.

  2. Paint pegboard with satin or semigloss paint in a color of your choice. Let dry overnight.

  3. Insert the painted pegboard into the frame and secure.

  4. Attach the hanging hardware -- two D rings -- to the back of the frame to hang pegboard on wall.

  5. Add pegboard hardware and hook holders to the front side of board to hold your supplies. Be sure to snap the pegboard hook holders in completely to keep the hardware from wobbling.
