This pegboard organiser is a great addition to your entranceway – taking care of all those things that tend to get left on the floor.

Make a pegboard
Pegboard organiser

You will need:


  1. Priming the pegboard
    Apply a primer of Resene Quick Dry. Then, once dry, roller Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen in Resene Black White over the top. Coat both sides twice so the board doesn’t warp. If the holes start to fill up with paint, wait until dry then use a skewer to push through the paint-filled holes.

  2. Colour blocking
    Use painters’ tape to mark out the shapes you want to colour block. You may want to measure the size of the object you will hang before doing this to make sure it fits inside the painted block. Making sure the edges of the tape are pressed flat onto the pegboard, paint in your chosen Resene feature colour. Do two coats. Once dry, remove the tape. Use a small paint brush to tidy up the edges if you need to.

  3. Hanging
    Stack six small washers on each screw before attaching to the wall, so the board will sit out slightly – making it easier to insert and move the pegboard hooks around. Attach your pegboard to the wall in all corners with a drill, as well as halfway down the board.

  4. Display
    Hang your pegboard hooks. You can play around with objects being contained by the coloured blocks (as shown with the keys) or overhanging. Have fun!
