DIY: Desk Pegboard

by Lindsay Pace

Get ready for the school year with this easy craft! A trip to your local hardware store can guarantee a colorful desk.


  • Pegboard, cut to length of desktop
  • Command Strips or a hammer and nails
  • Wire baskets
  • Craft supplies for storing, like scissors, washi tape or paint
  • Fabric banner, cut to twice the length of pegboard


  1. At your local hardware store, cut a pegboard to the length of your desktop. Then, using Command Strips or a hammer and nails, secure the pegboard to the wall above your desk (our pegboard touches the bottom of our desk, but place it higher if preferred).
  2. Decorate with additional items, using nails or Command Strips to hang them. For instance, hang wire baskets to hold craft items or notebooks; add dipped paintbrushes for a pop of color; string a banner for extra fun.
  3. Enjoy your new, organized desk!
