How to Put Pegboard on a Block Wall to Cover Up Ugly Pipes!

Living in Southern California, it's rare that anyone has a basement. Well, we're one of the few that actually has a small basement - our laundry room and my husband's work shop are down there. I know I might be weird, but doing laundry in a dark, ugly basement isn't fun and so I wanted to do whatever I could do make it pretty and more pleasant while I was folding all that laundry every week!
So, I came up with this "brilliant" idea that we could cover up the ugly pipes on the wall by putting pegboard on it. My husband thought I was crazy, but I talked him into it. He's smart and always comes up with a way to get things to work - I love that about him! Pegboard is cheap and not so pretty either, so I decided to stencil a whole piece - which I realized could fit across the wall. My husband used small blocks and special screws to screw into the block wall and used a jigsaw {after he measured around things} to cut the whole thing to fit on the wall. It looks fabulous and doing laundry is much more fun now that it's pretty - and organized having the pegboard!
