I have made this pegboard several times so have decided to create a smaller one to hold small spools.
Once you have confirmed desired dimensions, its time to head to your local lumber store. I went to Home Depot, as I find they are helpful and provide complimentary straight cuts.
Its time to pick out the frame for the organizer. I just use baseboards, which can be purchase by the foot for this. Each end needs to be cut on a 45 degree angle. Unfortunately Home Depot does not offer this cut complimentary. But they do provide a DIY cutting area to complete this step, in which I made use of.
The outer edge of your baseboards should match the dimensions of your pegboard.
Make sure you paint in a well ventilated area and use a mask if possible. Lay down newspaper and balance a few empty food cans under the board to create a raised level. This ensures as the paint dries it does not stick to the newspaper. Depending on your paint, give at least 24 hours for paint to set.
- Use anchors in addition to screws to give strength to organizer
- Use a level
- Use spacers in between organizer and wall with the screw going through it to ensure your hooks have enough room to hang nicely. Spacers can be found in the variety hook package below. Package can be purchase from Home Depot.
