Hey guys! I’m back to share a tutorial for the super cute Pegboard that I made for my friends nursery!
If you missed the West Elm Inspired Dresser that I made with it, you can click HERE for the tutorial! This pegboard was sooooo easy, under $20 and it only took an afternoon to build! I love it for the nursery but it would be cute in an office or a kids room too!
Here’s how I made it!
I purchased a 2×4 pegboard from Lowe’s
and spray painted 2-coats of our favorite, Rust-Oleum Heriloom White in satin. Yes, the board is already plain white but I wanted it to be a cream color to match the dresser
I purchased 2 – 1×4 @ 8ft. pine boards at Lowe’s and cut two boards at 21″ and 2 boards at 45″.
If you aren’t ready to make a purchase like this, you can buy this hand saw and miter box below. This is the perfect project for a saw like this:
After the boards were cut, I just drilled pocket holes with my Kreg Jig into one end of each board. We also have a video tutorial on how to use a Kreg Jig that you can check out HERE! It does not matter which end, just 2 holes at the end of each board and you can piece them together after!
Now, just piece them together with Kreg Jig pocket hole screws. I like the pattern that I used. It gives it a more industrial/rustic feel. Notice, each board overlaps the other. It is not the typical pattern that you would use to frame something out.
To finish this off, I purchased a 1×2 @ 6ft. to trim the top with. Just cut it to the exact length of the frame and nail it to the top (keeping the back of the board flush with the back of the frame. It will overhang on the front. I used my Ryobi Airstrike to add the trim
I dressed it up with pegboard baskets and peg hooks that I found at Lowe’s (on the garage storage isle). I’m loving it!!! It makes the perfect changing station for my friends new baby, adds a unique look to the room and it’s so versatile so it can grow with him!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
