Lovely comments

  1. I LOVE your pegboard! I’ve been wanting pegboard in my sewing room, but I never thought of making it so pretty! I also love the way you “framed” your rolls of vinyl. Such great ideas! Thank you!!

    • I knew this would be up on the wall for all to see so I wanted to make it as attractive as possible. Thanks!

      • This was the largest project I have ever attempted. I have to say the manual mitre saw about killed me. It turned out pretty good. I was a little off on placing the crown molding on the peg board. It was not lined up exactly but it’s good enough. I wasn’t sure from the instructions on where to mark the crown molding but I figured it out. 1st I tried to glue the frame and then place it on top of the peg board but when I tried to lift the frame it came apart. I did have fun playing around with the color and antiquing. I also used Martha Stewart paint. My next attempt is hanging it on the wall.

        I had originally bought $300 worth of Elfa (I’m a big fan) but after seeing your peg board I liked it a lot better, returned the Elfa, went to Home Depot and spent about $60. Your has a more homey feeling. It took a lot of arm strength sawing. Later I found out my dad had an electric saw. I’m excited to get it hung and display all of my stuff. I do need to make a trip to Ikea for the buckets. Thanks for the inspiration. I thought I would take the 2×4 piece and frame it but I’m not sure after my sore shoulders!

        • I loved reading about your project! It is super hard to cut that by hand. I just made another one this week and my hand is still sore haha. I can’t wait till I buy my power miter saw! Glad you saved the money and have a custom piece now!

      • I honestly do not know. Just go wherever you would go to buy lumber and they might be able to help you.

  2. Heidi, this is such a beautiful craft area! I love that you’re not hiding it away, you’re using the space you have. It’s gorgeous. And you have so much great crafting stuff. You’ve done such a nice job with it. Makes me want to go work on my “space”.

    • Thank you! I have SO much more stuff than this but at least some of it is neatly displayed instead of shoved away in a plastic bin.

  3. This is fabulous. Can I ask how you hung the Ikea buckets? I can see that most of the other pieces are hung using s-hooks or hooks specifically made for the pegboard, but I can’t tell about the rail for the buckets. Thanks.

        • Hi Heidi love this peg board and want to do 2 of them 1 for me and 1 for my son. I love the buckets however can’t seem to find them or the bar holding them. If you happen to have a link to buy them, would greatly appreciate it. 🙂 Also instead of framing my sons like yours was planing on either wrapping material with his favorite anime on it or something like that

  4. Best use and prettiest peg board I’ve ever seen. This is great and framing it out is perfect. I should configure something like this for all “my Stuff” Thanks!

  5. Heidi, This is beautiful! I have seen LOTS of pegboards because I am in the process of cleaning out/rearranging my craft room that was my home office for a business. I retired from that business last July. I am glad I waited to hang a pegboard so I can do THIS! Can’t wait to see how you made it! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I have a pegboard just that size that stretches across our dining room, giant thread rack and all! Though mine is far less organized. My favorite additions have been a mail box (the ones that hang on the house) to hold all my bias tape and ric rac packages, and a screwdriver holder that corrals all my different scissors. You’re definitely right about not knowing what you have until it is all out in the open…I never knew I had so much “stuff”!

    • Haha yes! I think since they grow up seeing all my crafting stuff every day it’s not as mysterious and exciting. I also put the paint up high.

  7. This is fabulous! Cute, organized, functional… everything in one! I need some crafty supply organization desperately! Thanks so much for the inspiration! Have a great day!

  8. What a fabulous idea for organizing a craft area. This will be great when I get my craft room back. It will be great to have it all up on the wall instead of in boxes and drawers.

  9. I have been collecting items for a craft room for the last 6-7 yrs. Due to an illness, i was put way behind! Anyway, i am thinking that i might be able to tackle this project this yr. So, i will keep my fingers & toes crossed . This would look great & make a great ‘WOW’ starting point.

  10. It’s the mother of all pegboards! i love it. I’m building my own craft room and am planning a pegboard organizer over one of the desks. I’ll definitely be taking some pointers from this one! I love the use of crates and the picture frame vinyl holder. Those Ikea buckets are awesome too. I’d love it if you linked this to my new linky party!

    Have a great weekend!

  11. I just found your blog from a friend’s pin on Pintrest, and I am so glad that I did. I absolutely LOVE the pegboard storage idea! I have to wait to move this summer before I make one of my own, but I can’t wait, and I look forward to seeing what other ideas you have to share in your blog. 🙂

  12. I too have a peg board in my stamp room and I love it, but it’s not as put together as yours!! I love how you organized your things!! Thanks for sharing!!

  13. Just got my pegboard! I have molding left over from when we re-did the house, so it can match the door frames. 🙂 can’t wait. thanks for sharing your great idea.

  14. I love this! I am repurposing an old armoire for my craft/sewing storage and i am using this for my inspiration. Did you purchase the thread holder or make it? If you did purchase it….where?

  15. Heidi,
    I just found your blog at “I’m an Organizing Junkie” and I LOVE this peg board for the craft room. I am working on re-doing my Craft room walls and this is GREAT inspiration.
    Please consider linking this up at my new Link Party at http:/
    Thanks for sharing!

  16. I have an empty peg board already hung…waiting to be useful.. Thanks for ideas on what and how to hang!

  17. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like
    to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  18. Hi! I ran across your post while searching craft storage for small spaces, when I saw your board I knew I had to have one of my own! I went to lower yesterday and bought the supplies (including the saw! ) I think I ran into a problem with the building of the frame, I used too much gorilla glue but I’m gonna give it another try. Can’t wait for the results 🙂 thanks for the inspiration!

  19. Hi Heidi,
    I seen your blog address on the Quilting Board, its nice to meet you, I love your peg board. I just rearranged my sewing room & I was thinking on how to make the best use of it, as I want to hang my scissors etc, and my interfacing & stabilizers. What did you use to hang the rod & buckets on, and rolls of paper in that picture frame, I only have the straight hooks to put the scissors on. I am hoping to hear from you so I can go shopping. I did not paint the small one I have hanging, my DH screwed it into my wall, so I hate to take it down, but when I put up the larger one, I am thinking of painting it a pale yellow, as my wall are white. I look forward to hearing from you.

  20. Hi! I found your pegboard through a web search while looking up ideas for my craft room. I love it, my husband is working on it as we speak!! I know you’ve said you got he buckets at ikea but do you by any chance know the name they go by? Or even the department they are in? I have been looking all over their website trying to find them and I can’t. Any information would be appreciated. I’d hate to walk the 47 hours it takes to get through the store and not find them. The professional look they have is what made me click on your picture. Thanks in advance!

    • I don’t know their name but they are in the kitchen section of the display area–not the marketplace.

  21. how did you hang your wine crates? im looking to do the same thing with some square shelves i picked up at a thrift store

    • Two of them were hung with a specific pegboard hardware that sticks out about 6 inches so the box can rest. The glitter ones have slits in the back that the shorter pegboard hardware holds them up. If you purchase a pegboard hardware kit you should be able to find something that works!

  22. Can you PLEASE tell me where you got the thread holder for the pegboard? I am going to make this for my mom for Christmas!!

  23. I love this idea! I have a million questions to help myself get started. I am wondering how you managed you get the crown molding attached to the pegboards and where you got this crown molding. I am thinking it might be easier for myself to get a frame fitted around it at michaels. (although maybe more expensive?)
    Also, how did you mount this whole board on your wall? Our condo walls are thin and stud less and I am worried something like this wouldn’t hold.
    Did you paint your pegboard white or did it come like that? I have seen only wood colored ones at home depot.
    Thank you so much!!

  24. WOW!! I am 11 years old and I have so much art supplies because I love art SO much. I have my own art room and I am not very fond of keeping all of my supplies in tubs and bins! This is a fun, cute, and easy way to make it all look awesome!! I will have my dad get all of this stuff right away!

  25. I found you via Jen at IHO. Can you tell me where you found the quote in the frame? I love everything about this!!

  26. I’m in love with this! I can’t wait until I have my own dedicated craft room and I can put up something similar… for now, my craft supplies are sharing a kitchen cupboard with the cat food 🙁

  27. The Ikea rail and buckets are called FINTORP . . . I am in the process of doing a craftroom redo as well, but I am unable to attach anything to the walls because of the finishing system we used in our basement, so your pegboard idea actually helped me realize that I could do the pegboard if I used a stand set-up at the bottom . . . will let you know how it turns out!

  28. Hi. I love this board and am working on my own. How did you attach the Ikea system to the peg board? I just bought it today. Thanks!

  29. I LOVE this peg board and am working on one of my own. How did you get the Ikea bucket system to stay on the board?? Thanks so much!!

    • I think I just acted like the pegboard was the wall for the screws and screwed it into the pegboard.

  30. Hi there! I rarely comment on blog posts but I must comment….I LOVE YOUR PEGBOARD! You did an amazing job! it’s absolutely perfect! The placement of all of your items – great eye! I love how you did the molding for the frame & how you “framed in” your rolls of paper & vinyl. Looks great! I’ve had your pegboard pinned on my “Craft Room Ideas” Pinterest board for almost a year now & I constantly come back to it. I am finally in the process of making it. I think the splurge on the Ikea buckets & rod system is so beautiful & it really stands out. I am heading to their site now to order. I really wanted to just say THANK YOU for an awesome pegboard project – it is by far the BEST one online! Thanks again 🙂

    • Thanks so much! What a great compliment! I love my pegboard and it has seriously changed my life.

  31. I found your blog from Pinterest. My husband helped me to make this yesterday though mine is not exactly the same. I was wondering which hooks you used to hang the thread holder and the dowels for the wrapping paper? I can’t see them very well in the photo. I have many of my things hung up but not these two as I was not sure which hooks to buy.
    thanks! You have a lovely blog by the way and I will be stopping by often.

    • I just bought the pegboard hardware kit from Home Depot. It comes with a ton of hooks and other pieces. To hang the thread holder and wrapping paper I used the large L shaped hooks.

  32. Good Morning Heidi, I have just discovered your blog after visiting some one else and I am so pleased I did because I am looking for ideas to use in my sewing room. I had thought about using a peg board, but I love how you have framed yours. I am so excited to start this project….. well perhaps not me…. my husband. I just know it will look fabulous when completed.
    Have a lovely day.
    Best Wishes

    • Thank you! I adore my pegboard as it is literally the only thing that is consistently organized in my house! Good luck with yours!

  33. Love this board!!! I want to make one for my sewing room, and when I showed this post to my husband he said he want one too, for his bike lab! Great idea, thanks for sharing!

  34. I will just like to join to what Maryann (@ Domestically Speaking) says: .. about this Extra Large Pegboard for Craft Room Organization… It is a great idee … it is an art :))))))) LOVE IT!

    Thank you!

  35. i

    This is exactly what I need to do. I have a small craft room and like many, I have stored items I can’t locate. Thank you thank you for your awesome idea!!

  36. Love you peg board! Where did you get the box that holds your glitter? Also, how did you get the glue gun to stay on the board?

    • The box is just an old wine box I found at a thrift store. And I’m not sure what you mean by glue gun…I don’t have my glue gun on the peg board.

  37. I do so many crafts I find it very hard to keep all my different things organised, this is such a wonderful idea that I’d certainly love to do it, my problem would be the size since the only place I can put it is my bedroom which isn’t large and already has more than enough crammed into it.
    Love this though, alot.

  38. This is exactly what I need in my craft room/office. I just do happen to have a great big frame I diy’ed into a chalkboard but I never use it. Storage is what I need. Thank you for this post!

    • Sure thing! This craft pegboard has been immensely helpful in helping me access all my major craft supplies easily. Good luck!

  39. Im going to do this.. Thanks with great directions. One questions… How do you attach shelving to the peg board – like your wine crates. Are the peg board hardware hooks work or you screw them all the way through peg board.. Their is a etsy store that has some pine floating craft paint shelves or spice racks? Advice on this… Wont use sewing thread or wrapping paper. Vinyl rolls and paper towel holder.

    • The peg board hardware kits come with large brackets that I just rested the wine crates on. The hardware is very easy to use, just poke the hardware through the hole and it rests there.

  40. could you please give us the detail of the thread holder?
    I’m gonna make something like that bcause i can’t find in store in Indonesia.

  41. This is fabulous! I just found your blog and what a great way to meet you. I am currently looking for ways to extend my workspace in my office/craft room and this is a perfect idea. I’m sure I’ll be back often. 🙂


  1. […] We’ve all been there before…frantically searching for fabric shears under a mess of fabric scraps, pattern pieces and thread and uttering out the words, “Tomorrow I’m going to organize this entire craft room from head to toe if it’s the last thing I do!” Let this be the year of the clean craft room with the help of a pegboard supply wall! […]
