These DIY Pegboard Kitchen Storage Ideas will have your kitchen looking beautiful while keeping it functional.

Sometimes when I’m working on a project, I think to myself, “What in the heck am I doing? My to-do list is a mile long and the month has just started, I feel overwhelmed with how much I have to do.” And then, all of the sudden, I get this notion for a new project. Temporarily abandoning my massive to-do list, I find myself covered in paint with another area of my house torn up. And, since I started this one new project, I end up putting more things on my to-do list. Can anyone relate?

However, when the project is finally complete, I’m overjoyed with the results and wonder how I could live any other way.

Pegboard Kitchen Storage Ideas:

So, here I am today in my kitchen (which I rarely show because it’s not the most amazing space), completely changing things around. Here’s what happened. I’m part of the Lowe’s Creative Blogger Team, and this month’s challenge was kitchen organization. Usually, I’m horribly late posting for Lowe’s which makes me feel terrible about myself, so I wanted to get my act together this month. I needed to make the 45-minute trek to Lowe’s this week for a few other things, and when I was there, out of the blue I got this idea for pegboard storage. I knew this was the project I needed to do, and that I needed to do it today. (Now, my project is only a day late. Baby steps.)

Four years ago (when I was a bit more into rustic / junk decor), I had the great idea to turn these crates I’d found in my basement into shelves in my kitchen. Since then, my style has evolved, and I’ve grown tired of the crates. I decided a change was in order. I decide to make create a pegboard kitchen storage area.

So, while on my shopping adventure at Lowe’s, I picked up a piece of pegboard (which happened to be the perfect size) and some pegboard accessories.

I wanted the pegboard to be white, so I gave it a coat of primer. Then I finished it off with a bright white trim paint.

I also picked up a couple little packages of peg board accessories. Thankfully, they included screws and spacers for hanging the board on my wall. Easy.

I decided to get three of these gray baskets as well. As you will see in a moment, I gave them a new look with a quick coat of spray paint.

After lots of cleaning, accessorizing, and some more painting, I have a brand new peg wall of organization! Let’s check it out.

Functional Pegboard Kitchen Storage Ideas:

So much better, right? It’s bright. It’s clean. It’s happy. And now I’m happy.

As you can see, the little baskets got a makeover. Valspar’s Rosy Cheeks spray paint gave them the perfect amount of pretty.

The baskets were filled with things I’m always reaching for when in the kitchen: salt, pepper, and little dishes. I also tucked in a plant because every styled space needs a touch of nature.

Other hooks were used to hang measuring cups and spoons. I like two sets of measuring cups, especially when baking. One set is for dry ingredients; the other is for wet. Very convenient.

I also used a screwdriver organizer for some cooking tools my Mom got for me. Love that.

Across the top of the pegboard is a 1x4x8 board I cut to size. The stain color is Provincial. This shelf provides storage for things I don’t use as frequently but like to display.

Since organization can also be pretty, I added a frame with a “cheeky” postcard I picked up in Ireland.

And to tie this whole area together, I changed around the art on the opposite wall. I had a basic white frame on hand, and I spray painted a portion of it black. Inside the frame is this artwork I found here. “Throw kindness around like confetti.” It’s a great little reminder to have in a space I use so much.

I also did a little cupboard organization and made room for some kitchen gadgets that were previously sitting on the counter collecting dust.

And that’s it! For a project that wasn’t even on my to-do list, I think it’s both cute and functional. Plus, it’s a much better reflection of where my design taste is these days.

    Hi Michael! Your kitchen is amazing! Removing and changing those rustic boxes into a peg board made it cleaner and brighter

    Hi, I’ve had this in my favorites forever (love it) and now’s it’s time! Please let me know where you bought the gray baskets, I’ve looked everywhere. Thank you!

      I found them at Lowes. Everything I got for this project was from there. I’m not sure if they still sell them though. That was a few years ago. Hope that helps!

      xo Michael

        Hi Michael

        Thanks so much! I had checked lowes online before but didn’t see them there. The hunt continues!

        Thanks again for this awesome idea, can’t wait to see it to completion. 🙂 Diane

    I did this about a year ago. I painted my pegboard red to match my kitchen decor. I truly love it for hanging items up

    Love your ideas and creativity

    Love the pegboards! What did you secure the pegboards with when attaching to the cabinet door? I want to free up some space from the multiple measuring spoons and cups I have. 🙂 TIA!!

  • Karen at

    Love the pegboards! I have always seen them in the garage and tool area at my MIL’s house. I would like to add pegboards to the inside of my cabinets for measuring cups and spoons, it seems I have two of everything, one for dry and one for liquids, just like you, and they just take up a lot of space. What did you use to secure them to the cabinet door? Sorry, if this was already addressed. TIA!

    Where did you get the baskets and cooking tools?
    Great idea, been contemplating this for awhile and now moving forward.
    Thanks
