Pegboard

A friend of mine wanted to see pictures of what I had done with the pegboard in my studio. I decided to post the pictures here in case someone else can find something useful in them.
I REALLY like pegboard! It was actually my husband's idea to put it up when he built my room for me. He had it up in his workshop and found it useful. I appreciated it so much that I also had him add it to my sewing room! It is a fantastic use of space! Another benefit is that although the pegboard itself is permanently affixed, nothing on it is! Everything can be moved and rearranged whenever and however you want. Reorganizing is one of my favorite things to do...so I really love that feature! A "boring" trip to the hardware store, or even Princess Auto, can turn into a jackpot haul trip for doodads for your pegboard! They have the coolest gadgets to organize and hang all your scrappy & crafty goodness! :o)
 
All the little red gadgets shown above came from the hardware store. Some are shelves and some have holes that are perfect for scissors & such. Even my Dremel caddy hangs perfectly on pegboard. This piece measures 45" X 46" and underneath it is a 5' countertop which will soon house my sink...YAY!!

The piece of exposed pegboard in this photo is four feet wide and 16 inches high. I got the little plastic jars in my stocking one year. They're perfect for so many things and the lids just pop into the pegboard. This is right behind another large work surface where you need things close at hand!
 
This turning pegboard stand is 5 1/2 feet tall. It holds a TON of product. It has 4 L-shaped sides. I used to use it for display at shows but now it's like my version of the Clip-It-Up...only it's a Peg-It-Up! Each side is reserved for one thing such as the one shown which is stamps.

  3. Looks like you saved a spot for me :-) Love your craft area. It is so organized, clean, and sane looking. I'll be over in about 10 minutes with coffee and some Tiffin :-)

    Seriously, your area looks like a haven to come to and get creative. A place for everything and everything in its place. A thing I aspire to, but can't seem to make happen. You have an awesome husband that knows how to enable you in a great way :-)
    Love you - Leslie
