DIY Ombre Pegboard + @MONTANADIY Giveaway


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?

DIY Ombre Pegboard + @MONTANADIY GiveawayYesterday 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!

DIY Ombre Pegboard + @MONTANADIY GiveawayStart 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.

DIY Ombre Pegboard + @MONTANADIY GiveawayWith the darkest color, begin spraying lightly (again with the speckle effect), then transition to a solid spray at the bottom of the peg board. Let dry and hang!

DIY Ombre PegboardTo 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!
