New & Modern DIY Pegboard Ideas

Storage and organizing has long since had a time tested fallback…pegboard. While most people think of it as a utilitarian material, pegboard organization can be pretty! We love how there is a new, modern take on pegboard ideas. The trend is towards more minimal looks with oversized holes, or even entire pegboard walls. This fits into a modern, Scandinavian, or Boho designed home as well as updates a more contemporary space. From kitchen pegboards, to pegboard shelves, all the way to DIY pegboard walls, we have tutorials for you. So be prepared for a storage shock… Pretty (& modern) pegboard ideas & storage DIY’s!
