Hooks with locks

Measure your space. The 1 x 2 frame and the pegboard will be the same size, with the edges flush. TIP: Keep in mind that the dimensions of a so-called 1 x 2 board are actually 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ when measuring for the frame.

Cut the boards and the pegboard to size. Hardware stores will provide this service free of charge if you don’t have the tools to do it yourself.

Secure the 1 x 2s to the wall in a rectangular frame, to align exactly the outer edge of the pegboard using toggle bolts or anchor screws- depending on your wall material. Generally, plaster walls require toggle bolts, and drywall can take either toggle bolts anchor screws.

Attach the pegboard to the 1 x 2 frame using wood screws.

Paint the pegboard whatever color you like. Benjamin Moore Grey Wisp is shown.

Place hooks as needed; plastic hook locks help to keep the hooks in place when in use.
