Pegboard Piece and Ornate Frame Organizer
I always pick up scraps of materials I like and I know I can use down the road. So when I came across this ornate frame I knew I could use a scrape piece of peg board on it and make a great organizer.
All I had to do is measure the inside of my frame and cut peg board to fit.
Once I cut it to fit I needed to secure inside the frame. I used small nails and nailed every few inches into the back of frame.
The easiest way to add a hanger was to use staples and staple my hanging wire in place making sure it is secure and will not fail once I hang tools on it.
Once I put it together I didn’t like the contrast of painting frame and brown pegboard. So I decided to paint it.
There was a few areas that had damage so I lightly sanded to blend in the gouges and prep for paint.
Because you never know what a project has been painted with I alway use liquid sander for adhesion. Nothing worse then taking the time to paint something and it doesn’t withstand abuse or use. This is an easy fix and inexpensive item from the hardware store.
I always shop the opps section of hardware stores. Paint has become so expensive. So if I can save costs I am all over it.
I loved this grey color and will be able to doing a million projects with this gallon of nine dollar paint!
No special technology here just paint it on.
Once it was painted the ornate frame looked blah so I wanted the ornate frame to pop.
I literally just took a black craft paint and painted over the frame and then whipped it off to leave color in crevices to create dimension in the ornate frame.
Once it was dry I adding some peg hooks to make it a craft room organizer.
ta-da here is my rendition of a small tool holder in my craft room. I super love it. It works great next to my heat press and my cricket to hold all my tools. I hope this encourages more people to take throwaway items and create something useful. Let me know your thoughts and opinions as always thank you.
