Roundup: 10 Clever Ways To Use Pegboard

Pegboards seem to be popping up all over the Internet these days. They're functional, but they're also fun to look at... I like to think of them as 3D polka dots. And there are plenty of nontraditional ways to use them.

ah!  I'm rebuilding some walls in an old trailer (mobile home).  The closets didn't (and won't) have anything over the studs on the inside.  But they will now!  Pegboard!  Love it!  Thanks!

Cool idea Linda T! Yes, to include a photo you would have to post a URL linked to photos that are already online (perhaps on Flickr or a similar site).

My SIL with 4 kids and a husband, had pegboard on the back stairs, (an old house with servants' rooms in the back) dozens of tools and gardening things were hung there, each with a sharpie outline, so they all knew where to put them back!  My pantry (also an old house) has pegboard for pots and pans, each size outlined and their lids too.  I took photos for you, but couldn't figure out how to put them here as the little photo icon brought up a long posting in Latin!
