|My Finished Peg Board Spool Holder|
Supply and Tool List
Peg Board I bought a whole 18' by 4' board for about $19.00 Dollars at Lowes White or Brown they can cut it to size for free, I wanted other specific sizes for other future DIY's on my list.
(5) 1/4 in dowels $.75 a piece at Lowes
Can of Spray paint your choice of color about $7.00
hand saw (borrowed)
Sand paper (in my tool box)
Gorilla Wood glue (The Best) $4.00
drill (in my tool box)
anchor kit (in my tool box)
A space that you can hang your finished board. Mine happens to be an alcove so it sits at an angle with screws at the top.
|My neat but wasted space|
|The board fits well and sits at an angle with the width at the base|
***Tip*** Take a piece of masking tape or tape a piece of paper the length of the pegs and put it on the edge of your cutting space. This will keep your pegs even and is much easier.
After cutting my pegs with my handsaw (and I am sorry I don't have pictures of all of this very dusty and very sweaty) I use my sandpaper to smooth the tops and bottoms of the pegs. I place the pegs into the backside of a scrap pegboard.
|Give the pegs room so that the spray paint can hit each of them|
***Optional*** You can spray a clear coat and wait a couple more hours like I did.
|Love this blue!!! Matches my room and decor.|
|What my board looks like without spools of thread.|
|I have more thread but I was running out of time.|
To buy an A frame from Joann's that holds about 60 spools costs about $50.00.
My Peg Board Spool board costs around $33.75. I had most of the extra supplies, so see what you have around your house, hit up a friend it will be worth your effort and it can grow with your sewing needs. See if a business is selling out extra peg board, you never know what you can turn up by asking.
