Materials And Tools Needed To Make A DIY Pegboard Headboard
Pegboard — You can purchase some online but it’s much cheaper at your local hardware or craft store. You could also cut your pegboard to your desired size at Home Depot or Lowes. We opted for white, but there are lots of color choices!
The great thing about pegboard is that it’s affordable and versatile. We’ve done multiple DIY projects with this material like our DIY Pegboard Wall Art, DIY Pegboard Christmas Tree, and creating a She Shed It Tool Organizer.
Dry wall screws
Clear spacers — We used 1 in. x 3/8 in. O.D. x 0.171 in. nylon spacers.
General mounting tools
How To Make A DIY Pegboard Headboard
I used four pegboard squares because we had no way to transport the size we needed in one go.
1 – Get a general idea of the layout you want, then measure and mark.
2 – Anchor drywall screws to the wall, and then place clear spacers between the wall and pegboard before screwing them in place.
3 – Continue with the remaining boards.
4 – Use pegboard accessory hangers to decorate!
