Pegboard Craft Organization

Pegboard organization isn't just for the workshop...



Back in the day, my Grandfather had every tool outlined in marker on the pegboard in his shop. He was very careful to put the tools back exactly where they were supposed to be. 

He was also one of the first guys I knew that had baby food jars hanging from their lids under a shelf. 
They were filled with nails, screws and bolts.

I remember thinking how great all that organization was!


I will not be outlining my craft tools on this pegboard
because my style is a lot more random...
(though truthfully I did think about it for ten seconds)


 I do like my organizers... especially in the craft room.
They make me feel less stressed.
(I just seriously have a hard time putting anything back where it goes)

I love seeing exactly what I have. It's so easy just to grab something I need without rummaging through bins...



This was an old thread holder that I cut down to 2 rows. 

Drilling a hole in the top of each end made it perfect to hang on the pegboard hooks. 

These little spools of Baker's twine love their new home.


Packages of tags hang just like in the store for easy access.


Drilling a hole in the back of the buckets 
made them easy to hang on hooks.


In case you missed it, you can go here for instructions on antiquing cheap shiny buckets for more of a vintage look.



I'm hanging the ribbon on long peg hooks for easy access.
Waxed twine, Baker's twine, and wire are wrapped around cardboard pallets for more easy hanging storage.


And... I've strategically left room for more craft supplies... 


This clear cup was once a water bottle.... 

I cut it out with a loop on the back side, it hangs over a hook
showing exactly what is inside...


I love pegboard...
a great storage solution for easy visual organizing!

  1. It looks great, but I can't help but feel even if I did that AND outlined it that my family would still mess my space up and put things in the wrong spot. That's how they roll!

  5. This is really great. Question about putting up the pegboard -- Did you nail it directly onto the wall? Or did you put anything in between the wall and the pegboard?

    1. No I used a spacer between the wall and the pegboard. If the pegboard was directly against the wall then the hooks wouldn't work, there has to be a space in between :)
