DIY Ombre Pegboard
Time: 10 minutes + dry time
Materials: pegboard, drop cloth, Montana GOLD spray paint
So, as you may know, I’m in the midst of an office makeover (here’s a sneak peek!). While digging through my boxes of supplies on a regular basis, it occurred to me that I need a better way of organizing some of my frequently used crafting essentials. And what better way to do that than with a painted ombre pegboard?
Yesterday I showed you how to use Montana’s acrylic paint markers to decorate a planter, but for today’s project, I’m using their GOLD spray paint. This line in particular is my go-to for spray paint. They really have the best colors (takes a few minutes of shaking just to mix all the pigments!) and the coverage is excellent. They’re giving away a small collection of both spray paint and markers to three lucky readers– keep reading to see how to enter!
Start with your lightest color. You’ll want to spray a bit from the top so that the paint speckles up, giving you the lightest color of your ombre (similar to how I made this). You could also buy a third can and start at the top. It all depends on how you want you blend your colors. Spray to the bottom of your board.
To mount, you’ll need spacers, screws, washers and a drill. From the wall, the items should be in this order: spacer, pegboard, washer, screw. This will give you some space in the back so that you can securely hang hooks and baskets through the holes!
Thanks to everyone who entered yesterday. Be sure to claim your entires for today as well; ends Friday at 5pm PST!
