Hanging peg box

Mark Rayner shows you how to make this colourful hanging peg box from treated plywood.

You will need: 25mm galvanised jolt head nails, cardboard, drill with 10mm drill bit, hammer, jigsaw, offcuts of 9mm and 15mm treated plywood, paintbrush, pencil, PVA exterior glue, ruler, sandpaper, a saw and scissors. Resene Lustacryl tinted to Resene Elvis and Resene Quick Dry.

To get the look: Mark painted the background shed wall with Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Soft Apple.

Here's another option: Create a fun gold effect by painting the peg box with one coat of Resene Porsche followed by two coats of Resene Bullion.
