i’ve got you pegged.


fabulous tool organizer from the design files.

i’ve long been a fan of the very utilitarian pegboard as a nice option for vertical storage. i think it may even have been julia child who started this trend, with her pots & pans hung neatly on pegboard in her kitchen for easy-access, and i fondly remember grace bonney’s lime green kitchen pegboard way back when. there’s something so symmetrical and tidy about pegboard, and it seems to be making a strong comeback. i keep seeing it everywhere of late — from organization storage, to furniture — even headboards. perhaps a fun DIY project for over the holiday break?

  1. Oh yes, pegboards are awesome for storage in the kitchen or the office. Never thought of using one for washi tape–I don’t have enough to need a whole wall of storage–but maybe for all my craft supplies! I like putting pretty supplies on display anyways so you can enjoy them all the time. I posted an office last week with an awesome pegboard wall too! http://www.athomeinlove.com/friday-links/

    Peg board is really hard to buy in the UK, despite having been everywhere in the 1970s! I am trying to track down some for my studio, my shed and my kitchen!

    Lovely Ideas! I like the lamps you’ve showed, but I would also use a wall Lamp. I have used this one: Diana http://www.delightfull.eu/en/heritage/wall/diana-reading-lamp.php on a project and it looks lovely, what do you think?!

    i saw a pegboard in an issue of domino that i’ve kept for, like, ever. also in an organization issue of martha stewart and i’ve really been wanting to get one for our kitchen! it would be so much easier than bending down and sorting through a little cabinet of unorganized pots and pans…

    great inspiration here!
