My laundry room was getting very cluttered with brooms and mops.

I decided to make something behind the door they could hang on.

I am a big fan of things up and off the floor. It makes me feel like the room is cleaner somehow.

This is what it did look like…

Pretty messy, huh??

So, I sent my husband to Lowes to buy a peg board. I roughly measured behind the door to get an idea of how big I needed. He had them cut to my measurements so he didn’t have to do it when he got home.

I already bought 2 yards of fabric from Hobby Lobby, which was a little more than I needed. You would only need to buy for however big your project is. My board is 70″ x  35″.

I laid the fabric down then laid my board on top. Folded the sides over and started hot gluing the fabric down.PicsArt_1392737821067

This is it really. ( Ignore the stain, apparently I had something on my countertop where I laid my fabric. Since I knew it was going to get covered up I didn’t bother with washing it).

I did want it to look a little prettier so, I had some of these trimming boards I bought at Michaels for another idea, but didn’t use.

I painted them white and then sprayed painted glitter on top. Everyone needs a little glitter in their life! They are around $2.50 each and I needed 6. I didn’t attach them yet though.

So, if you want to go a cheaper route, I would buy some furring strips at Lowes and cut, nail, and piece together to make a frame.

Next step was to hang my board.  You need to make sure you have enough space between the wall and your board for the peg hooks. Again, if you made a frame you could have mounted to the back and had enough room, but since I had to be difficult and use what I had, I found some shims and glued 2 together to make it even, then glued a few around the backside.

Had my hubby hang it. I glued the trim pieces on after it was hung, you can do it either way.

Then, I added little wood flowers in the corners to cover up my boards that I did not cut at an angle because that would have been more work. I got these little flowers where I had got the trim at Michaels. The bag was around $1.50 for 4.  I painted them a blue and called it done.

Lastly, for the hooks, I just used regular peg board hooks. So, wherever I wanted to put them I just snipped the spot over the hole with a scissors and inserted the hook.

And, now my laundry room “appears” cleaner to me…
