I really need to get better about taking BEFORE pictures, however this is a rather simple DIY project and fun to do.
Since moving into my art shed, I knew I had to brighten it up in there. The yucky brown pegboard had to go and considering I had three walls with it on there, something needed to be done.
Being the artsy gal I am, I figured why not give the large one some personality by painting it and since I have an endless supply of paint (working at a paint store comes in handy) I had several colors to work with!
Here’s how and what I used to complete this project:
Painting pegboard is actually easier than I anticipated. Never doing it before, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out, especially with all the holes. However, I found rolling it on it MUCH easier than brushing it.
Click below to find tools similar to what I used for this easy DIY project:
– 4″ roller cover frame
-3/8 roller cover nap
– paint tray
Without any direction, I literally started taping the wall down with 2 different sizes of blue 3M tape, making the geometric shapes as I went. I then took a 4″ roller with a 3/8″ roller cover nap and lightly applied the first coat paint, so I wouldn’t get it stuck in the holes and so the paint wouldn’t bleed under the tape, messing up the clean lines. After applying 2-3 coats of each color, I let it sit overnight to dry.
The next day, I removed the tape…AND GUYS, CHECK OUT THE RESULTS!
I. AM. OBSESSED.
*insert heart eye emoji here* LOL
I was actually impressed with how well this turned out considering it was a spur of the moment paint decision but I couldn’t be more pleased! I can’t wait to share what I decide to do with the other two walls, SO stay tuned!
