DIY Pegboard Storage

As an artist and a crafter, I love having my most used tools and accessories within arm’s reach. That’s why I love these pegboard organizers I created in just 8 easy steps. Follow along to make one for yourself.

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 in. x 2 ft. x 2 ft. Wooden Project Panel
  • Pencil
  • T-Square
  • Sand Paper
  • 3/4 in. x 48 in. Wooden Dowel
  • Drill
  • 3/4 in. Spade Bit
  • Miter Saw
  • 1/2 in. x 4 in. x 4ft. Wooden Plank
  • Hanging Fixtures


Step 1: With a pencil and T-Square, create a grid with vertical and horizontal lines across your project panel every four inches.


Step 2: Using the 3/4 in. Spade Bit, drill a hole into the project panel at each intersection of lines on the grid.

Step 3: Carefully sand the wood around each hole so it’s smooth and erase your pencil markings.

Step 4: With the miter saw, cut several 5 inch and 3 inch segments from the wooden dowels. They will serve as pegs and shelf holders.

Step 5: Cut the plank in half with the miter saw. These pieces of plank will serve as shelves.

Step 6: Attach the hanging fixtures onto the top back corners of the wooden panel.

The Great Outdoors Woman

From bowhunting to fly fishing to skeet shooting, Tessa Wyatt is a great outdoorswoman. When she’s not enjoying the sweet summit city of Park City, Utah, and all the charm Main Street has to offer, she’s off exploring the surrounding nature.

“I like to hike, fish, and love to camp. If I am staying around here for a quick one or two night getaway I will go out to the Uintas or up Mirror Lake Highway. There are so many cool little hidden lakes and brooks up there. It’s beautiful and super easy to get to; very fun for short hikes in and fishing for some really neat brooks. Adventuring during the day, fire pit and cooking at night, and then sleeping in a tent. Once you get the whole process dialed in- it’s a quick pack in and pack out.” -Tessa Wyatt

Whether the weather is warm or cold, every season is bustling with activities. With winter afoot, planning for snow and freezing temperatures is crucial.

“Having the right gear is pretty key. I moved to Park City from Honolulu and literally had one pair of socks; the change in climate was a pretty big shock to my system and it took me awhile to adjust. The right shoes, good thick socks, a thick jacket, and a warm hat. Layering is really your best bet; it’s always easy to take layers off but harder to add layers on if you don’t begin prepared for the weather. I try to keep my core as warm as possible too, I can go for quite awhile with cold feet and hands but always have a hard time heating back up if I am chilled in my center. My Carhartt jacket is kind of a staple for me in the winter and at night in the summer.” -Tessa Wyatt
