Think those industrial looking pegboards are just for men who love tools? Think again! With a bit of paint and creativity, you’ll end up with an organizational jackpot suitable for anyone!

What you’ll need:

  • Pegboard(s) and accessories (hooks, baskets, etc)- found at Home Depot and Lowes
  • Spray paint
  • Accent paint (either craft paint or a different color spray paint)
  • Small paint brushes
  • Stencil

Start by spray painting your pegboard(s) all over- you can totally stop here, and it would still look great! I used Krylon’s “Hyacinth.”

Plain pegboard

After the board(s) dry, grab your stencil (or you could free hand). I found this picture of a flower online that I blew up and printed out. I cut out the large parts to trace, and filled in the rest by hand. I put one flower on each board in the corners.

Now fill in your drawings with an accent color. According to Krylon’s website, you can use their paint with a regular brush (who knew??). I chose a pink spray paint called “Raspberry” which I took outside and sprayed into a plastic tub. It’s a bit watery, but it worked great!

Once your details dry, you might want to finish with a clear coat of some kind to protect your work-this is definitely a piece that will get a lot of use!

Hang your board(s), put in your pegboard accessories, and organize! Sorry for the quality of the picture, I took it at night and the lighting is bad in the basement (will be fixed soon!).

Finished Pegboard

Wouldn’t a smaller version of this look sweet in a girl’s room over a desk? Switch up the colors and details for a boy’s room! But this purple and pink beauty is for yours truly, to keep all my craft supplies (which I obviously haven’t put up yet). He would never admit it, but I think my husband is jealous!

Accessorize Pegboard

Cost Breakdown:

(2) 2’x4′ pegboards- $6.47/ea

(3) cans Krylon spray paint-$2.60ish/ea

Pegboard accessories-some owned, but will need to purchase more

Stencil-free

Paintbrushes-free

Total: $20.74, plus any additional pegboard accessories down the line.

Not too bad for an awesome way to organize your things (and keep them at arm’s reach) without taking up desk space, drawers, or shelves!
