Pegboards (sometimes referred to as peggy boards) are boards that contain a grid-like pattern of small, evenly spaced holes for pegs. Pegboard displays are often found in retail stores, and are becoming more common in homes. Hang them, mount them, or lean them against a wall, and then insert pegs or hooks to display a variety of items.
Styling a pegboard is easy, too. They can be painted and used to display photos, jewelry, or other accessories. Use a pegboard in the garage to organize tools, in the craft room to keep supplies tidy, or in the kitchen to add extra storage space for cooking gadgets. Pegboards can even be used for displaying home decor pieces, like those mentioned in the ideas below.
