This is not your Daddy’s workshop! In fact, we’ve come a long way since thinking tools are just for the men in our lives. This DIY project does however pay homage to the crafty garages and work spaces that we may have seen growing up. Our Pegboard project is in honor of Father’s Day, but is useful for everyday! We encourage you to create the perfect organized space inspired by Dad’s iconic workspaces everywhere with some help from our friends at Ace Hardware!
To create, you will need some essential items: Pegboard (we used two for our space), screws, drill, level, a pegboard organizer kit I found at my local Ace (trust us- it’s awesome), double peg hooks & curved peg hooks. Before drilling your pegboard in, use a level to align directly with wall, aka make it even. Mark it, and drill screws directly into the wall. Depending on the size of your board, you will have to drill enough screws to secure it safely to the wall. The fun part is merchandising all of your tools and/or art supplies! Create an organized design with your hooks and hang away with everything from tapes to scissors and more! The pegboard organizer kit I used even had small jars and containers that hook directly onto the board!
P.S.- Ace’s Father’s Day sale is taking place now through June 19th and includes amazing products that you (and Dad) are sure to love.
