How to Use Pegboard in a Potting Shed

After I installed pegboard, a mini potting shed tucked into my circa-1920s garage feels like it has more storage and organization than a walk-in bedroom closet. Here’s how to make your own 18-inch-deep garden shed:

Above: I installed pegboard on the side walls as well as the back wall of an 18-inch-deep work space.

A handyman mounted the sheets of pegboard to cover the walls, then hung shelves for added storage.

Above: On the pegboard, I use hooks in different sizes and shapes hold all my garden tools and keep rolls of twine neat.

Above: A 48-by-96-inch sheet of Hardwood Pegboard ($14.98 apiece) is smooth on both sides and can be installed with nails or glue.

A variety of sizes and shapes of hooks are available, depending on what sorts of tools and accessories you want to hang. For instance (from Top), a 50-Pack Of Pegboard Hooks is $11.99, a 4-Pack Of Metal Double Prong Peg Hooks is $2.28, and a 50-Pack of Angled Peg Hooks is $11.99 from Lowe’s.
