Maximize your Closet Space with Pegs


The way to sell a house to any woman I believe is with a huge walk-in closet.  It’s hard for most women to walk away from something so grand.  However, most of us don’t have huge walk-in closets where we can store all of our clothes as if they’re in a store.  We usually have to settle for cramming our clothes and accessories into drawers and wherever else we can find.

No, this isn’t a post on knocking down walls to create a walk-in closet in place of a guest bathroom.  Rather, I thought I’d show you how to try to maximize the closet space you already have.

I realize some of you may not have much to work with, but a lot of closets have an empty wall that is typically located by the door.  If you do have some empty wall space in your closet, you’re in luck!  With a few tools and some time, you can add a lot of organizing space to your closet that is perfect for belts, scarves, hats, etc.

Unfortunately, my husband and I did this project before I started blogging, so I only have pictures of the finished project.  This wall actually used to be entirely empty though, but now we can store all our belts, scarves and hats on it.  I love it!

  • pegs
  • wood glue
  • saw
  • strip of wood
  • paint
  • wood putty
Game Plan:

1.  Cut 1″ to 1.5″ wide strips of wood to the length of your wall.

2.  Drill holes for the pegs and make sure to space them out evenly (take into account what you will be hanging on them).

3.  Glue pegs into holes and let dry.

4.  Screw the strips of wood with pegs into the wall.

5.  Putty the screw holes.

6.  Paint the wood.
