DIY Craft Room: Jumbo Pegboard Wall

DIY Craft Room: Jumbo Framed Pegboard Wall

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve been getting a few sneak peeks of this project we completed last weekend. Prior to a week ago, my craft “space” was the laundry room, which was shared with the dogs and the laundry machines. As it only had a tiny counter with a sink in it, I usually took over the kitchen table for my crafting, which my husband just loved (sarcasm). With being part of the 2014-2015 Silhouette Design Team (yay!), my crafting has been in high gear lately so we decided it was time I had a proper space.

The spare bedroom was rarely used and held just a twin bed, small nightstand, and leather recliner. We sold the bed and recliner in just a day and then the Jumbo Peg Board Project began!

I started looking up ideas and really loved the big size of this pegboard at Honeybear Lane. I decided to go even bigger because the closet in the to-be-craft room was filled already so, the wall would need to organize the bulk of my crafting goodies.

Off to Lowe’s Home Improvement we headed we three kids in tow. The guy who helped us was awesome! He was a chatterbox and the kids loved him (that’s them giving him “knuckles” below). BUT……..we totally didn’t think about how we’d fit a huge 4 ft x 8 ft pegboard in a van with 3 kids in carseats/boosters. There was no way it was fitting in. We tried. And tried. And then we tied it to the roof which turned out to work fine. All the holes in the board allow the wind to pass through. Whew!

When we got back and put the kids to bed, I immediately went to work painting the pegboard and the framework.

We spent around $100 to get all the supplies. Everything else you’ll see on the board are things I had, “shopped” for from around our house, or made for the board. The frame pieces cost the most at $36 worth of the project…since I wanted the pretty, decorative stuff!

For this project we purchased:

  • 1 (4ft x 8ft) white pegboard
  • 3 (8 ft) trim pieces
  • 4 (2.5″x2.5″ wood block corners)<—Adding these was my husband’s idea. He’s pretty smart sometimes! :)
  • 3 bottles pegboard spray paint, 1 bottle trim spray paint
  • Peg Board Accessories kit and various extra pieces

I did three coats of the Valspar spray paint on the board (color: Flat, La Fonda Mirage) and two coats on the trim/decorative pieces (color: Gloss, Frosted Berry). I’m not the greatest spray painter and I’ve tried several brands. This is by far the smoothest and easiest to apply I have ever tried!

The next day, I glued on the four block corners and we trimmed the beaded wood to fit the edges and glued in place and we moved it up to the room to hang it. I just used E6000 glue and clamps to hold the pieces in place while they dried. My husband used studs and/or wall anchors to secure four pieces of wood to the wall, two at the top near each corner and two at the bottom near each corner. Then he held the pegboard up while I screwed it into the wood anchors.

We moved a utility table from our garage up to the craft room (Pretty? Not really. But we’re on a budget and it works!). I used an old outdoor chair we had in our garage and painted it pink like the trim of the pegboard.

Then, I got to work doing the layout and organizing…by far the hardest part.

The giant scissors I got a few years ago at Hobby Lobby.

The “Work Hard & Be Kind” sign is one I designed and made. You can find it in my Etsy shop as a downloadable printable or a custom wood sign order!

The “Create” banner and dress form I created from paper using my Silhouette CAMEO. The Fabric Yo-Yo Lampshade tutorial can be found here. The lamp stand was an ugly bronze and I painted it with two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Arles.

All the shelves on the wall are from my husband’s scrap wood bucket in the garage. All painted in ASCP Arles as well.

The tin “Make Stuff and Be Happy” was a Pick Your Plum score and I used my Silhouette CAMEO to do the vinyl text (this cut file in the Silhouette Store).

          Hi Marisol! Thanks so much! The basket is so old, I sadly can’t recall where we initially purchased it but it’s just a rectangular rubbermaid container. I’m sure you could find a smiliar one somewhere like Target, Lowe’s or Home Depot. Have a great weekend!

    I’m working on doing something similar for my sewing room, and I wondered what you are using to hang your scissors.

      Hi Jennifer, they’re just a hook (the “technical” name is curved j-hooks). They came in the variety pack of pegboard organized I picked up a Lowe’s but you can buy them individually in the same section. :) Have a great weekend! -Dawn
