STEP 1: Drill holes into your peg board
Place your peg board where you wish it to be and drill several pilot holes into the wall around the perimeter of the board. Don't add the screws just yet.

STEP 2: Fill the holes with wall anchors
Move your peg board away from the wall and take several wall anchors and fill the holes you made before with them.

STEP 3: Drill screws into the holes
Place your peg board where you want to install it, and drill screws through the board and into the holes you previously drilled around the perimeter to hold it in place.

STEP 4: Paint your pegboard
This step is optional, but if you wish, you can paint the board any color you like. We painted it with a chalk paint so that we can write on it if we want to!

STEP 5: Apply hooks and brackets
Once the paint dries you can apply the hooks and brackets and such where you want them to go.

Now you can hang pots or whatever you wish onto the hooks!

Take the peg board bins and attach them as well and fill them up with whatever you wish! I love these bins, because you can use them for so many things.

I installed this at a friend's house, because my kitchen has very little uninterrupted wall space, but I love this so much, I might have to find room for one.

My friend is an AirBNB host and puts breakfast out for her guests cause she is a cute lil' bean, so these bins worked perfect for her continental breakfast options.

    The only place I could use this in my kitchen would be behind the door that goes into my garage. I wonder how it would work on the bifold doors that cover my washer/dryer and heater area in the kitchen. Your thoughts?

      I don't have any sides of frig that are exposed - only about 2 inches of space on either side

    may I ask please, how do the hooks stay in the holes seeing as how you didn't frame the back so it would be out from the wall?

    Where do you put the spacers? It's not in the directions but people in the comments say the are needed. Do they go behind the screws when you drill the pegboard to the wall or do you glue the spacers to the pegboard around the edges? Or am I completely wrong an it goes somewhere else? Thank you :-)

    One subjection. Paint first. Before you hang.

    Looks nice and anything that increases storage is terrific. I do agree that spacers would make inserting the pegs easier. We use a lot of pegboard for storage, especially in the garage, and the spacers are a plus. I also would have painted the pegboard before mounting it (but that is subjective and can go either way).
