Remember week 1 of the One Room Challenge? One of my objectives was to install a pegboard to hide that ugly pipe.

Well, I did it (I mean, we did it because I couldn't have done it alone! Thanks, honey 😊)

For the One Room Challenge, hosted by Calling it Home, I'm giving my craft room a makeover. Or more accurately, I'm making a craft room that can be called a craft room! You can see the recaps here:

How to install the pegboard

So first, I bought 2- 2x3. They were the same depth as the pipe. We installed the 2x3 using flooring nails. We also used wall anchors when the 2x3 were not aligned with the wall studs.

Once installed, we fixed the billy CD/DVD shelf unit that we had for sooo long on both sides. But the pictures for that will be for the reveal week only! 😉

Now, here's a sneak peek at what the pegboard looks like. Can you believe I have too much space?

  1. This is such a clever idea. I also have pipes like that but they are in the corner and I don;t know what to do with them. I really like your solution. Pinnning.
