Our Back to School Pegboard Organizational Wall

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

I have wanted to create a pegboard organization wall forever and I finally did it. The kids will be back to school in a few short weeks so I decided to create a peg board full of school supplies. Homework is kind of a drag in our house and it’s even worse when necessary supplies are missing. As hard as I try, I never seem to master keeping school stuff organized. I am hoping that having this new peg board full of supplies will help. We partnered with National Hardware for all the peg board hanging tools, accessories and adorable plastic containers.

I was originally going to spray paint my pegboard in a high gloss white but decided to try a heavy white wrapping paper that I had picked up at HomeGoods a couple months ago. Be sure to use heavy weight if you decide to cover your board, this way it won’t rip.

Simply wrap the paper across the board and tape along the back side using duct tape.

Once my board was covered, I decided to arrange my hooks, tray and organizers on the backside so I could see the holes.

Most of the hooks push right through the paper but the ones that didn’t, I used a nail driver (you can use a pen or something pointy to make your holes. This way, when you flip over the board, your holes are already there in the paper.

I arranged all the hooks where I wanted them (on the backside) so that I could make changes without poking holes in the paper that were not necessary. Once I liked the arrangement, I flipped it over and added the hooks in the already made holes.

I decided to hang the board on a blank wall in our playroom.

Our back to school pegboard organizational wall is going to be so helpful once school starts. I love this board so much, I want to create a craft, sewing and office wall for myself. Oh my goodness the possibilities are endless. Another fun idea also would be to hang the board length wise over a desk.

  1. My children are grown and gone so I don’t need this for school work. I do have two bookcases in my craft room on either side of my work table and this would be perfect to hold all the “junk” taking up room on my work table. I would have never thought of this. They are Billy Bookcases and I lined the back of them with red and white striped wrapping paper so I will use the same paper on the peg board. Thank you for the idea!!!!

  2. What a great way to organize a space and make it look kid friendly.

  3. This would be perfect for my craft area. I love that there are so many cute things that hook on the board.

  4. I love that all items are visibly displayed . I’ll have to try this !!

  5. Looks great Jessica! I love that you added the pretty paper for a pop of color + depth. So fun. xo Jenna

  6. I was wondering how this has held up over time? I have a pegboard that I covered with a photography backdrop. I just used a staple gun and lightly stabled on the top and sides, but if I remove it and redo it it will definitely rip. The pegboard was already attached to my house so this was the best way to do that. Do you think I could safely put a hook through? I’m just wondering if I leave the hook in one place, if it will affect the paper since the board is attached to the wall.

    1. Ours has held up well! It’s still in the same place and looks exactly the way it did when I tooks pictures of it ๐Ÿ™‚
