How to Create a Custom PegboardNov 21, 2021
Hi everyone, I'm ELISA and I'm a feisty wife behind the easy-going feisty wife and when people see my craft room the most they ask is this craft board right here. I made this
customboard with the help of my husband. and I'd like to show you the process of how I did it how I
customized it and I'm going to do it by creating a new
pegboardthat's going to go in this blank area right here and I'll be working on that with my husband I'd like to walk you through the process so you know the steps on how to
createyour ultimate craft board. let's get started Thought I'd give you a quick tour of the
pegboardthat it is.
Currently in my room is a large square board about 48 inches by 48 inches and it holds a fair amount of my art supplies, everything is displayed in the order of the rainbow and I use a variety of shelving, some from Ikea like this spice rack, some of household items like this tray I personalized on a washi tape holder many standard pegboards h Looks like the ones holding these scissors here some thrift stores find these mason jars that are meant to be candle holders but they do a wonderful job holding pens and markers and then these custom shelves that are made from a piece of wood we found. in our white painted garage and they work great on my pegboard so this is the custom Pike board.
I'm going to make a similar one that will go in this blank space here ready to hold more art supplies. The first thing you'll want to do when designing your custom backboard is measure the space you intend to fill. This is a space I'm working with and my ideal pegboard would be about 24 inches wide and 48 inches long but I don't want to buy any more supplies I have this piece of pegboard left over from two different projects we bought a huge long sheet at Home Depot about let's see about a year ago for a Christmas present and he made a large pegboard for my kids made this pegboard and then t this is what we have left so this is what I'm going to work with to
createmy pegboard custom right here I found these two foot by four foot pegboard sections at Home Depot for just $9 great for creating your own custom pegboard customizing my pegboard background is actually going to be a multi step process before putting up the edge around the pegboard.
I'm going to use this tissue paper with the gold lines to add a design in the background and I chose this mostly, I couldn't find the same gold. I dotted the tissue paper that's on my pegboard up here, but I thought gold would get the same feel, so I'm going to put this on the bottom. I am using Mod Podge. I'm just using glass because that's what I have this huge 32 ounce thing of gloss modge podge I'm going to use that and then I'm going to assemble the rim around my table top and I'm going to show you how that happens and after the rim is in place I'm going to add a little detail just like i did with this jane pigeon importer a big rubber one right here with this chick.
I'm going to use a napkin and this girl is very similar. I'm going to cut it out and add it to the corner of my board and I'm waiting because I want to see how. the edge hits before i apply it so it doesn't cover too much, that's ok. I'm going to put you in a time lapse and show you how to modge podge the back of my cover work ok the next step in the process is probably the most tedious what I'm going to go through is I have my mechanical pencil here and I'm going to punch each of the holes in the board and I'm not just going to drill but I'm going to move my pencil around so the tissue paper while it's still wet with Mod Podge will smooth out along the side and if I have any that come on up i can add a little more Mod Podge in that area when i'm working on this part i recommend putting a movie sitting in your living room and it just works better still put it on my youtube channel and check it out get out of there anyway i'm going to put you back in time lapse because no one wants to see this and i'm going to get these holes out and we'll be good to go ok since the scrap ended up being a little bit smaller than i wanted so what we're going to do is try to add a little bit of width using these fence boards and the way we're going to do it is have the top and bottom line up perfectly with the edge of the peg boards to help create some stability and then the sides that we're going to join in the first or second hole they don't quite line up with the inside flush here but we're going to push it out to get a bigger pegboard in the middle and give the illusion of a wider piece to fill that gap in my craft room ok to create a border around the pegboard we are using old fence posts that the previous owners left in the garage and I like the weather to show and my husband is measuring the distance 37 and 3/4 each side and he will cut these peg posts and then we'll cut this one to fit the top and bottom and get ready to put them in, but before you put them in, there's a step that needs to be done right before a side note. maybe we should have measured twice and cut once when we first aligned this board it was covering part of the holes like this making the entire row of holes unusable so let's move the top of this edge up to make sure we can use those pegboard holes but that also means we have to switch the sides and then we'll have to send this end in and measure and fit it exactly where we can see the holes on both sides are a bit complicated and what we're going to have to do is cut a row of pegs right there or we'd just end up with new side pieces anyway.
I am always so grateful to my husband who helps me with these crazy projects. ideas of mine and the patience he has for when I miss out on sure or want something done in detail is amazing this is the part where we had to be extra careful we used clamps to fit the fence boards against the pegboard exactly where I wanted it and then we flip the pegboard so this is the back of the pegboard and my husband uses screws that go through the holes in the pegboard and attach to the fence board. The screws needed to be long enough to attach but short enough not to go all the way through the fence boards and this is how we are attaching the trim all the way around without seeing any marks now that the sides are in place we are using this look where we're reusing the square to show the ends and measure the length of the top and bottom we'll be drawing a line and then getting ready to cut the last two pieces that are about to storm out, but we're trying to get this last part of the project done sooner before it rains ok the last little part we are measuring this top section marking it with the square drawing g the line of the last few cuts to make the border around this quick word and there is the garbage truck in the bottom ok getting ready to screw on the last part, this is definitely an imperfect look, but we can use materials we already had on hand hand and I like the rustic look sorry about the dump truck I like the rustic fence post look and imperfect is something that happens a lot in my craft room so we'll stick with that we're trying to that the garbage truck is here and strong as i like concerned ok the next part we are going to do is the crucial part that makes it work like a pegboard and what it is creating is what i call backing pieces and we're just using scraps from the fence post again and it'll do it if you can see here from the side when you hang it you'll be able to come off the wall that way when you put things in the holes for the pegboard they have room to go between if you don't make the backing piece, then your pegboard won't actually work ion as a pegboard, it will rather, it's really exact, it just has to be shorter than the actual width of the pegboard. beating the storm hopefully look at this crazy storm we were here two minutes ago and it looks a little crazy ok the back piece is flush to the top so it doesn't cover any of the holes i would like to use as part of my pegboard just a couple screws as you can see we move the feature in forward and because the storm comes fast and furious outside this is love folks we add pieces on top on the bottom that way when screwed on. at the stunts in my room it will hang nice and even want i lean back and forth and flip it let's see my pup settles in for the night the last step on this project tonight will be T's Mod Podge to cover and attach this napkin from Jane Davenport that I trimmed around the edge of this girl and added a nice little sentiment in the corner right there and normally when I do Mod Podge on napkins I remove as many layers as possible however I'll leave it on this one because I want it to look a little duller against this pegboard.
I'm not going to drill the holes in the girl because I'm going to make accessories around her. I'll also coat the whole pegboard again, the whole inside with Mod Podge another coat to make sure it's nice and secure and then once it's dried overnight tomorrow we'll hang it up here and I'll customize it and this project is done. when you hang your pegboard you definitely want to screw it into a stud with my larger pegboard we found a couple different studs to make sure it's more secure this one isn't wide enough to reach two different studs but that's ok, we're marking where they are, we'll put the pegboard in and then screw it in there at the top and bottom, that's the point. with or without screwing we're going to level it and then add the screw on the bottom so it's nice and secure and I'll be able to add the hardware any home improvement store will offer a variety of hardware that you can use with your pegboard .
I recommend that you sketch out your plan in advance of what you want your pegboard to look like and what kind of accessories you might need before you hit the store or else you might get a bit overwhelmed or they have a variety pack that you can maybe use to try out. a few different types of accessories to see which one will work best to meet your needs here is my final product with my new pegboard installed on the wall and i am very pleased with how it turned out i think it complements the original pegboard very well and will be a great solution of storage while still being beautiful and inspiring, which I think is an important part of a craft space, making sure it's not only functional but also inspires you.
Most likely, you will change some of these accessories. I'm not entirely sure. I am happy with the arrangement. started collecting for craft projects so far i also have some metallic paint stored in there and beginnings of some of my jane davenport supplies in those hanging jars i got on sale at hobby lobby for a dollar twenty five each which was a deal fantastic but that's the great advantage of pegboards - you can change them as you need and change them to suit your needs, so I think it's a great loose source for any craft space. I really hope you enjoyed following along as I created a custom pegboard for my craft room do you use pegboards in your craft room?
