Last week we showed you this DIY giant peg board we made for our basement makeover.
It has turned out to be one of the best organizational tools ever. The pegs can be removed and inserted anywhere that you need them to be.
On a scale of 1-10 (1 being easy, 10 being difficult) I would say this project is a 3.
Even my kiddos got in on the creation of this board.
Supplies you will need:
Sheet of plywood.
Ruler and pencil.
3/4 round dowels.
3/4 round drill bit.
The first thing you want to do is measure where you are going to drill your holes.
Honestly, this was probably the most time consuming part of the whole project.
There is no right or wrong dimension for how far apart to space your holes, just make sure they are uniform.
Start drilling on your marks. Be sure to keep the drill at a 90 degree angle so the pegs will go in straight.
There is a reason I recommended a Black+Decker 20V drill…
The new Black+Decker drill is 30% more compact at only 2.6 lbs and just as powerful as many larger models. Drilling just a few holes will get tiring fast. We actually have a larger drill but I found that the weight and size of the new Black+Decker is so much more practical. I promise you will agree after drilling 5 holes. You can more done quickly without giving your arm a charlie-horse. I actually keep my drill under the sink in the kitchen. You’d be surprised how convenient it is to grab it when you need to tighten a screw or hang a picture. The drill really packs a punch within such a small unit.

The dowels are also 3/4 inch found and can be found at most any hardware store. I used a saw to cut them at at 6″ each.
Once you have all your holes drilled, wipe off your surface and you’re ready to hang your new DIY Pegboard.
