Summer Station Pegboard- Getting creative with pegboards

Hi Friends!,

Welcome to the 3rd project in the Home Depot Gift Challenge. Each month the most creative bloggers are given an item/material from Home Depot to purchase, transform and use in a gift.  So far, we have used a copper tee  to create a cute little cabinet handle and wooden dowels to create  a geometric lamp. This month our material is a pegboard and the gift recipient can be anyone. *  Just a reminder -Home Depot is not affiliated with this challenge in any way -we just heart them.

 Summer Station Pegboard

Combine function and an style!

Summer Station Pegboard by Paper and Fox

Our first summer in Charleston is approaching and we like to spend a lot of time outdoors. I am fair skinned and have spawned two redheaded fair skinned little boys.  I wanted to create a “go -t0″ summer station where daily essentials could be hung.  A place to hang sunglasses, hats, sunscreen, dog leases and anything that you need but always seem to misplace in the summer.   The material we were assigned to use this months was a pegboard. Part  of this project is that the end product has to be a gift. This month I am giving a gift to my sanity. I spent too much time hunting down bug-spray, glasses and sunscreen and that is time away from having fun.

I chose a plastic pegboard from Home Depot because I was not sure if the board would be indoors or in the garage.

Painting pegboards

With spray-paint that bonds to plastic I coated the pegboard in a light blue-green.

A little paint pulled off with painters tape, but it was easy to fix.

 Cute Painted Pegboard

I used painters tape and cardstock paper to create stripes.

Clear coat spraypaint

I sealed the painted pegboard with a clear coat to protect it from chipping.

 Summer Station pegboard styled

I spray painted plastic baskets that I already had to match the board.

I used a tool holder to to hang our sunglasses and peg hooks to hold the baskets.

I am sure that I will add to the pegboard summer station all summer long.

    Super-cute idea! I visited Charleston a few years ago, I’d love to go back. We were there during an intense heat wave and had to cut the day short.

      Charleston is an amazing place, but I am interested in determining what a real Charleston Summer feels like. Thanks!

    Perfect way to organize all those little things that get strewn about the house! Especially sunglasses; I can NEVER find our sunglasses! Such a cute idea. I didn’t know HD had plastic pegboard, either! Great job!

    What a wonderful idea! I have definitely fallen victim to the “where the heck is the sunscreen?!” disease.

    • carmody April 17, 2015 at 6:26 am #

      “where is my everything” is what I have going on. Thanks!
