Digital Lace Tool Rack

Decorated peg board-turned-kitchen-tool rack. This is a re-use of an old lace table cloth that I used to decorate the kitchen mini blind in a previous project.
Time: 4 Hours Cost: $35 Difficulty: Medium
First, here's the backing for the pegboard.
Here it is on the wall--yes, just an ordinary, run-of-the-mill pegboard I bought at my local hardware store. I put it up so I could make sure it fit before I went to the effort of decorating it. It's painted the same white as the wall.
So, I took the board down and covered it with the old tablecloth. This is the very same cloth I used for the kitchen mini-blind. I used the same color, too, since this is also for the kitchen. The most important part here is to get the cloth centered so the design is pleasing......unless your cloth has no center, then it won't matter.
The fun part of painting! Let the inner child go and cover it lightly with spray paint. I don't try to get too uniform; I like the slightly aged, distressed look if it's a little bit uneven. I remove the cloth with the paint is 'tacky' but before it's 'dry' so the cloth won't stick to it.
......and it's up! One of these days I'll get around to putting a frame on it. Maybe.

Here the cloth is stretched out on the ground to dry. It's ready to use again!
It's so nice to have certain tools within reach and others that are heavy or bulky out of the drawers & cupboards!

    What a useful idea!!! Just a suggestion..............The tray at the bottom would make a great center piece and finish by hanging all around it.

    I have always said that aside from the wheel, hooks are the best invention. I love getting things up off my counter and floor. This is very VERY cool!!

      Couldn't agree more, Sandra. I'm waiting for repairs to be done before storage solutions can be put in place so my work-tops are covered in stuff and I hate it! This will most certainly help though!

    I live in a little house, and I mean little-only 2 rooms, and this is the best idea I have seen. Right now I have pots just hanging on the wall, but I like the thought of hanging utensils too, the wall is naked enough to handle all of them on the same side. I would have to paint the peg board by hand though, just maybe swirls or even checker board pattern. Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea for me to copy. lol. Now to save up for the project, maybe I can find some scraps to use.

      Why not stencil a design on it. You never know you might find some stencils at a garage sale or on sale at Michaels or Hobby Lobby, or any craft store.
