Pegboard Inspiration

Saturday, November 11, 2017

I'm thinking about a future kitchen project (more about that to come), which has had me saving images of pegboard wall organizers. Yes, pegboards have been trending for the last couple of years, but I think they're more than just a passing trend. Case in point: Julia Child's famed pegboard pot rack in her Cambridge kitchen. Plus, the original architectural plans for the kitchen I'm scheming about indicate that a pegboard was to be included in the kitchen (though no signs of one remain today).

Here are a few DIY pegboard ideas that have caught my eye:
Inspired by both Julia Child and the Eames Hang-It-All, Food52's tutorial for this pegboard uses off-the-shelf pegboard and peg hooks that have been dressed up with wood balls to give it the Eames look.

Featured in Est Magazine, an Australian publication, this entryway designed by the architectural firm Heartly is paneled in floor-to-ceiling pegboard that has been painted black.

In this kitchen, a panel of pegboard covers the side of a refrigerator, making clever use of the vertical space. Remodelista notes that the "pegboard hides the gap behind the fridge, which wasn’t deep enough to meet the wall."

Remodelista is also using a shot of a desk organizer pegboard to promote its new site The Organized Home and their new book of the same title.

I was also intrigued by this high-end pegboard in the Baitasi House of the Future by dot Architects. Here the pegboard is contained within custom cabinetry/millwork and is flush with the rest of the wall.

The blogger duo behind Little House on the Corner (love the name, guys!) offer a step-by-step guide for how to make the mod pegboard shown here.

For a similar, but even larger scale DIY pegboard project, check out this three-panel entryway installation from Vintage Revivals.

Of course Martha Stewart Living ran an adorable pegboard project way back when (above left), and more recently featured a DIY one (above right).
