Pegboard Ideas For Small Spaces

Ever since we saw Julia Child's kitchen, we've been loving pegboard and all of its practical applications at home. You can make it any size and color you want and, with a little creativity, it can help solve (and or wrangle) a lot of loose ends in a small space.

1. In the office. Hang pegboard above the desk to keep your desk area clear of clutter. This is especially good for people like us who have no drawer to tuck things away into.
2. The Kitchen. This one is obvious, but it's a classic for a reason. We love how bright Christine went with her kitchen pegboard and think it's a great and economical solution for small kitchens with limited storage.
3. In the Closet. Martha generally has great ideas and we love the idea of tucking some pegboard into a closet to help keep belts, scarves and jewelry in their place.
4. Wrangle Magazines. Using a spot that's otherwise unused (i.e. under a counter) hang some pegboard to serve as a magazine rack. From Desgn Sponge
5. The Garden. Robin had a lovely small space garden idea by hanging plants on pegboard on her tiny balcony. We love that idea and never would have thought of using it outdoors. Just remember to coat it was varnish so that it's sealed from moisture.
6. Lighting. Try this awesome pegboard lighting down a dark hall or next to the bed to add some ambient light. Via Modern Nests
7. Tiny indoor garden. If you have a bright wall in your home, you can make your own vertical garden with pegboard like misstana did. Just make sure that you've got the drainage figured out!
