Whenever I post a picture of my craft room on Instagram, we get a bunch of questions about it! I think it’s because craft room organization is super colorful and nice to look at while also being really functional — a combo that gets all the DIYers talking! My craft room is always evolving as I change the methods I am working with or the projects I am deep into, but my pegboard almost never changes because it is where I keep my core crafting arsenal. Hanging a pegboard for tool storage is so helpful because it takes up little space and gives me easy access to all of the supplies that I use most. So today we’re sharing a few pegboard organization ideas and sharing tips for building your own!

1. Pegboard

There’s not too much to say here since the pegboard itself is just from my local hardware store and mounted on the wall with this mounting kit! Pegboards are really affordable and you can have them cut to whatever size fits your space.

2. Paint storage

This was a bit of a hack! I already had this wired cube storage at my house, so I took two of the squares, spray painted them gold and hung them from these hooks. It works great and I get asked about it all the time. It’s perfect for having my most-used paint colors right where I can see them!

3. Hooks and tool holders

I have loved scouring the internet for little storage pieces that connect to the board so that I can pack as much onto it as possible. I used this set that is full of hooks, boxes, jars and holders for tools and spray painted it all gold. They hold everything from scissors to paint brushes to paper slicers and more with ease. In fact, as you are setting up your pegboard, you’ll be surprised by how many craft tools come with holes in them that are perfect for hanging from a hook!

4. Baskets

I spray painted this set of baskets to match the aesthetic (clearly gold is mine). I love these ones because the tighter mesh keeps small supplies from falling out, unlike some other wire baskets with a wider weave.

5. Tape rollers

This is another little hack that is great for holding tapes, string or anything on a roll. Just use the hooks from this useful set, space them as far apart as you’d like and place a dowel that is a little longer than that length on them! Then you can put your washi tape, transfer tape, vinyl rolls, etc. through the dowel! Something like this holder would also be great, especially for bigger rolls of paper towels or kraft paper.

That’s it! Once you have all of your pieces, it is so fun to mess around with configurations that make sense to you! You are going to love how handy it is to be able to easily see and have quick access to your most loved tools.
