Step 19: Pegboard

Picture of Pegboard
Having already cut the pegboard to size, we had to position small plastic spacers as sleeves on the screws between the back of the board and the wall; this provides clearance for the pegboard hooks to be inserted. We used black graphic arts tape to secure the spacers to the back of the board (as opposed to blue masking tape, which was definitely visible from the front), then drove the bright screws (provided in the pegboard hook assortment kit with the spacers) into studs we had marked beforehand. On the second pegboard on the opposite side of the room, we used black 2" drywall screws and they looked much better.
