It’s DIY Monthly Challenge time yet again! It’s so crazy to think that we’ve been carrying on with this First Wednesday of the Month Challenge for so long. We’ve now done Dollar Store decor, Trash to Treasure, Paint, Fabric, storage items and more…
Some months are more of a challenge than others. Like this month. September’s item is Peg Board.
SUPPLY LIST for a Nautical Themed Pegboard:
- 4×4 Pegboard
- 1×2 Lumber
- Minwax Stain Wipes in your choice of colour
- Black cardstock paper (12×12 sheets work best)
- Silhouette Cameo OR Cricut Explore Machine
- Glue or Spray Adhesive
- Brad Nailer
Here’s what we started with – a 4×2 peg board from the hardware store that cost us about $8. Then we had a few pre-sanded and cut boards of varying sizes and lengths.
Then, I used the wider boards (which were both 4′ lengths) and affixed them to the back of the peg board. I allowed 2″ of them to show through at the bottom. I attached them with my nail gun and it was a breeze.
From there – I measured the length of the side of the peg board from the top of one board to the bottom of the other. It was 28 1/4 inches in case you were wondering.
Now to up the nautical factor. I searched through the Silhouette Design Studio and found a file image of a bridge span. I cut the bridge out of scrap booking paper in a grey-black tone.
I sealed it all with one very light coat of Poly and voila! A masculine and nautical peg board 🙂
