If you follow me on Instagram, you may have caught a few peeks into the nursery this weekend. Since the start of the year this room has been my top priority! I mean after all, little bebe is already 3 months old so I should probably start his room :)
I have been a big fan of the pegboard movement. It’s something I’ve had my eye on for awhile and I thought this room was the perfect space to try it out. It really fits the industrial/outdoor theme of this space. This weekend, I finished his Pegboard Diaper Changing Station and I can officially say I’ve now jumped on the pegboard bandwagon!
I’m really happy with how it turned out and it’s both super easy and inexpensive to put together.
I found these antique baskets on Decor Steals awhile back and I’ve been saving them for just the right project. They fit this space perfectly!
And yes, just look at all his hair. It’s unreal, people.
For the ‘R’ I grabbed a raw wooden letter at the craft store and then stained it in Rustoleum Sun Bleached.
The bucket was my grandma’s that she gave me several years ago. I always love using her pieces around my house.
It feels so good to get organized and see this room come together!
Here is a quick tutorial on how I put this together.
- 38″ X 24″ piece of Pegboard
- (2) 2.5″ X 38″ Boards
- (2) 2.5″ X 19″ Boards
- White Paint
- Wood Glue
- Pegboard Hook Assortment
- (2) D Hooks for Hanging
- (4) 1.5″ Screws for for extra securing
- Power Drill
- Circular Saw
- Stud Finder
- Measuring Tape
- Paint Brush
- 120 Grit Sand Paper
Start by cutting your wood and pegboard down to size. Then give it two coats of white paint.
Then, put the wood trim onto the pegboard using wood glue. I put weights on the boards and let them dry overnight.
To hang the pegboard organizer, I added ‘D Hooks’ onto the back of the piece, then once it was hung I put screws into the board from the outside and made sure they went into studs. I didn’t want to chance anything with a baby involved!
Then, I grabbed an assortment of pegboard accessories and hung my baskets, buckets and decor.
I can’t wait to show you the rest of the room!

Did you have to put any boards against the wall to keep it off the wall so there was room for the hooks to go in?
