nail gun & nails

paint
paint brush
caulk & caulking gun

First you'll make a frame with your 1x2 for the back of your pegboard. Your peg board will need to sit away from the wall for your hooks to fit in. This frame will help it do that.

After I painted all the trim. We let it dry. Then we hung this big boy on the wall! You'll need heavy duty screws, a stud finder & anchors to hang this up. It will get pretty heavy when it's fully loaded with craft supplies.
