DIY Rainbow Pegboard

DIY Rainbow PegboardWell, I finally decided to get my act together and organize my craft supplies. Boxes of clutter just weren’t cutting it anymore. There’s just something about visually seeing everything as a whole that makes it easier to keep everything in it’s place. At least that’s what I’m telling myself so I can keep this rainbow pegboard up in my studio. Because what day isn’t made better by a rainbow?!

This is another fun project I did for the West Elm blog AND it’s a tinnyyy sneak peek inside my studio. I’ll have the full reveal for you next week (OMG FINALLY), but for now, here’s how to give your supplies a colorful and organized home!

DIY Rainbow Pegboard

Time: 45 minutes


Painter’s Tape
Spray Paint
Spacers/Screws (for mounting)

DIY Rainbow Pegboard1. Divide your pegboard into equal parts and tape off the sections you plan to paint. I ended up using two 24×48 boards and just stacked up on top of one another.

DIY Rainbow Pegboard2. In a well ventilated area (outside is best!), spray paint your sections. Peel your tape when the board is entirely painted and let dry before bringing back into the house.

3. Mount on your wall– making sure to use spacers! This will create enough distance 
between your board and the wall that you can use pegs for hanging your supplies.

*Tip– painted jars work great for storing smaller, loose items like paint brushes and markers.
