Creative Uses for Pegboard

Pegboard is an inexpensive and easy way to organize supplies just about anywhere: garage, office, kitchen, craft room, kids room — anywhere! Slap a coat of paint on it and it can even match your decor and look much less brown and utilitarian. But pegboard is good for more than just hanging on a wall to hold your stuff. Check out these 15 creative uses for pegboard:
