DIY Laundry Room Pegboard

We used this DIY laundry room pegboard for awhile and loved how well it organized our laundry room while looking nice.  However, we have since transformed our laundry room yet again – more into our dream space.  You can see all the details of that DIY HERE.

Laundry Room Pegboard

This pegboard wall would also be a great solution for a crafter and all the supplies that come with crafting! (see the tutorial for creating the fabric wall in my laundry room here).

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Peg Board (4′ x 8′)
  • (6) Furring Strips (1″x 2″ x 8″)
  • Chop Saw (to cut the wood strips to size)
  • Nails
  • Hammer or Nail Gun
  • Screws
  • Electric Screwdriver
  • Primer & Paint
  • Paint Roller

To begin, decide where you want your peg board to go and what size you want it to be.

Peg board typically comes in a 4 feet x 8 feet sheet, and I decided to not make any cuts and keep it the full size.  I found the center of my wall and measured out where my peg board would go.

You will want to create a frame for the peg board so it sits off the wall.  In order to easily do this, I took my level and drew the perimeter of the 4’x8′ rectangle.

Once I knew where my pegboard was going, I found the studs and tried to strategically place my furring strips over the studs.  This proved to be a little tricky since some of the furring strips were not straight.

I used a nail gun to hang my strips (best investment ever).

After the frame was up, we added several more furring strips for support since I was going to be hanging some heavier items like my iron and ironing board.

We went through and drilled holes for the screws.

The majority of the screws were in studs.

We marked off the studs above the peg board.

We then attached the pegboard with screws making sure the majority were in studs.

I primed and painted the pegboard using Zinsser Primer 123 and finished it with Valspar’s Signature Paint + Primer in Coconut Milk (one of my favorite colors).

Once the paint was dry, I hung my laundry supplies!

If you want to see all the details on where I found the supplies for my laundry room pegboard, you can check out this post.

I have plenty of room to add more items if needed.

Laundry Room Pegboard

Pegboard can be used in spaces other than garages – what about a laundry room pegboard?

  Using Peg Board in the Laundry Room

My neighbor has a pegboard in her laundry room, and I decided it would be a great way to organize my laundry room.  Why should the garage have all the fun and organization?

I’ll be sharing the full pegboard tutorial soon, but let’s talk accessories! I began with the pegboard hooks, and bought a bunch off Amazon (affiliate link):

Peg Board Hooks

I spray-painted them gold using Valspar’s spray paint.

I also spray-painted the hanger in the laundry bags, also found on Amazon (affiliate link):

Aren’t they adorable?  I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the (iron-on) lettering. I also spray-painted Lena’s little plastic bucket from our beach spring break trip.

Laundry Room Coin Storage

At first, I thought it would be a lint holder, but then I decided a golden bucket had to be for the spare change found in pockets. I found these pegboard baskets on Amazon (affiliate link):

Which are perfect for laundry supplies…

…and the larger one is great for an iron.

I also spray painted them using Rust-Oleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint

And I spray painted this pull-down ironing board that of course was from Amazon (affiliate link):

My drying rack was one I already had, but I stained the wood sides to make it more special and fit with the look.
