DIY Garage Tool Pegboard

For most of us our garages are no longer the place we keep our car at night. Chances are you don't have room to fit your car in your garage due to everything else you're storing!

But there's no need to feel embarrassed - as our resident DIY princess Zoe and Builders have a screwdriver on hand to show you that there are plenty of solutions to help you make the most of your space with this week’s Builders DIY.

What you'll need:

- Pegboard
- Black Chalkboard Paint
- Basket
- Cable Ties
- Paintbrush
- Chalk
- Screws
- Screwdriver
- Scissors
- Plastic Pot Plant Holders
- Cup Hooks


1. Cut your pegboard panel to size if you are not installing a full sheet. You can get this done at your local Builders.

2. Paint or topcoat the pegboard. You can leave the pegboard unfinished, if you prefer, but a coat of paint or varnish protects the composite material from nicks and dings and hardens it around the hole openings so the holes are less likely to become elongated.
We used black chalkboard paint so that we can write notes with chalk on our pegboard.

3. Locate and mark wall studs if your garage wall has a wall covering. Make sure the marks extend above and below the pegboard location so you can see them once the pegboard is positioned on the wall.

4. Tack the pegboard and frame to the wall in the desired location. An easy way to do this is to use cable ties.

5. Once you've hung your pegboard you can use hooks or metal baskets to hang all your odds and ends – and even hang a pot plant or two!


The kitchen is also a great place to have a pegboard, where you can store all your cooking utensils!
