Don't have room for a big workspace pegboard? No problem! You can fit a mini-version of this all-powerful office organizer in nearly any tiny office nook—and still make it look good. All you need is a scrap of pegboard, a store-bought frame and some glue.

We've featured a few cool home offices here on Unplggd that use pegboard—that hole-y panel you'll see often in retail settings or garage workshops—to keep everyday office supplies organized (check out Lara Robby's Craft Room & Lizzie Garrett Mettler's Pegboard Organization for some inspiration). But they all use big pegboard panels, in full-wall applications.

If you have a smaller space, you can still get use out of a pegboard organizer. All you have to do is frame it!

By laying your gear out in a hanging grid, it almost takes on an art-like quality, so why not give it the gallery treatment? Hang a framed pegboard in your home office nook. Even a 12"x12" board will fit in a multi-function bedroom- or kitchen-workspace, and it'll give you a great spot to store scissors, tape, string and spare papers.

All you need to do is find a small panel of pegboard and cut it to fit any store-bought frame. You'll want to make sure the frame has removable front glass and back panels, then just glue the pegboard in where the glass used to be! You want to leave the back panel off the frame so your pegboard hooks have a little room to slip in behind the board.
