I was inspired by Heidi Swapp's large striped wall
in her craft room and wanted to paint gold stripes on
my craft room pegboard.
The pegboard measures 6 feet wide by 3 feet tall and I am here to encourage you, because I made and installed this all by myself! You probably can too!
I call it the American Crafts wall! Almost everything on here is under the American Crafts umbrella of companies! Love them!
STEP 1: Tape off and paint in color of choice. I used Rustoleum Metallic Gold Spray Paint
STEP 2: PEEL TAPE OFF TO REVEAL CRISP CLEAN EDGES :)
STEP 3 AND 4: Miter your painted frame/molding (number the back as you go for easier placement later) and hang by 1"x2" boards secured to the studs with long wood screws, I used a stud finder to locate them. Tip for easily hanging the 1x2's by yourself---I marked the edge of the boards once I got them level. I found the studs and marked them with a pencil, then drilled through the level 1x2's into the wall with a drill bit same diameter as your wood screws. I then placed a long nail through the hole created with the drill to hold the 1x2's in the wall while I secured them with screws at the other end:)
STEP 5: Use Liquid Nails or Loc-Tite (construction adhesive of choice) to attach moldings and clamp with heavy duty clamps until it grabs hold. Then pre drill small holes for the finishing brads and hammer them in through the molding and into the 1"x2" secured boards. Countersink them with a countersink tool so they are less noticeable when covered with caulking.
STEP 6: NO PIC- APPLY CAULKING TO THE FRAME'S BRAD HOLES AND CORNERS TO HIDE THE SEAM.
STEP 7: Have fun hanging and organizing your stuff!!!
I added the raw pine boards that I cut with my jig-saw by pegboard shelf hooks.
Target dollar bins 2/$1 from about six months ago finally have a spot.
