How to Hang a Peg Board

Pegboards are useful additions to any home. With them, you can hang tools, kitchen supplies or even creatively hang office supplies with them. Hanging a pegboard doesn't have to be difficult, but it does have to be done right to support all of the equipment it will hold.



    Measure the area where you will place your pegboard with a tape measure.


    Choose the right pegboard size accordingly, and mark and cut it yourself using a jigsaw or hand saw, or ask a hardware store employee if they will cut it for you.


    Cut out four pieces of 1x2 board, two the desired width of your pegboard and two the desired length of your pegboard.


    Take your drill and screws, and screw the four pieces of pegboard you cut in Step 3 into a frame shape on your wall.


    Line up your pegboard with the frame you created. You may need the help of a friend to keep it steady.


    Use your drill to screw in the pegboard at about 15-inch intervals.


    Place the hooks on your pegboard.
