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:

So first, I bought 2- 2×3. They were the same depth as the pipe. We installed the 2×3 using screws. We also used wall anchors when the 2×3 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. What a smart idea! I’ve been wanting to add pegboard to our storage room for quite some time, and we ended up with ugly pipes running outside the slightly less ugly soffit. This looks like a fantastic solution. Thanks so much for sharing at the #happynowlinkup!
