Spring has sprung in East Texas and my daughter Bella and our little neighborhood girls are back to playing outside and hanging out in our driveway. Keeping outdoor toys organized has always been a big problem for us.

Today, I’m really excited to be partnering with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and The Home Depot to share this fun (and easy) DIY garage pegboard storage wall to help organize our outdoor toys and sports equipment. I’m also doing a giveaway this week for a $50.00 Home Depot eGift Card that you can enter to win at the end of this post!

Back in January, some of you may remember that I shared my garage pegboard storage wall for storing my tools and DIY supplies:

That wall has turned out to really be a life saver for us and it was such an easy way to create storage for all of our tools and supplies. I wish I had done this wall years ago!   By the way, I have a very narrow garage and that wall is only 5 inches deep!  If you’re looking to create storage in a narrow garage, this is has been the best solution for us!

After we finished to tool storage area, we had a little extra space to the left of the door in the picture above and this is where we planned to do a narrow pegboard wall to store all of my daughter’s outdoor toys:

Because this area is just right by the area where all the kids play outside in our driveway, I wanted to not only create storage for the toys and equipment but I also wanted to create a fun area for the kids with paints and activities as well.  Something that would be fun for rainy days when the kids have to run into the garage.

We starting this project by hanging pegboard panel that we picked up at Home Depot and cut down to 48 x 52 inches.  Underneath the pegboard is a simple square frame of 1 x 2′s just around the edge, so the pegboard comes out from the wall allowing room for the peg hooks to go through the hole:

We painted the pegboard in a warm gray color and after it dried, I used the ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape    that I also picked up at Home Depot to create perfect and fun wide stripes on the pegboard.  I have talked about in the past how I’m obsessed with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape with Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector  because it’s the only tape that has never failed me and gives me the cleanest paint edges:

It’s really easy to layout stripes on a pegboard because all I had to do was count the holes to guide me in my lines and where to place the tape.  After I laid out my stripes, I painted my stripes white:

After the paint dried, I pulled my ScotchBlue Tape off, and as always, I was thrilled with the perfect clean lines:

After I removed the tape and the stripes were completely dry, I added my pegs, baskets and loaded up the pegboard to store all of my daughter’s outdoor toys and equipment.

My next door neighbors Mark and Glenda helped me figure out a way to attach a roller for painters paper for the girls to pull out and cut when they want to paint and color.  We attached it to the bottom of the board where the 1 x 2 is to make sure that it would be very secure as the girls pulled the paper.  We used curtain rod brackets and a narrow copper pole to run through the roll of paper:

I also used these inexpensive paint buckets that I picked up at Home Depot to store some of the little stuff.  One of my favorite tricks is to create chalkboard labels by spraying the ScotchBlue Tape with flat black paint (You can write on black flat paint with chalk):

Spray painting painter’s tape is a super easy and inexpensive way to create labels and all you need to do is attach the tape to something outside and then spray it. I prefer using the ScotchBlue Tape because it removes cleanly with no adhesive transfer or slivering. Also, because of the Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector, this tape delivers super sharp paint lines.  I use this old metal bird cage holder for all of my spray paint projects:

By the way, the vinyl adhesive targets on the door are for Nerf  Guns and will be so fun for the kids to do on rainy days!

If you have little ones and a lot of outdoor toys to try and organize, as you can see, this pegboard wall is a great way to keep everything contained within a small area.  The kids were so excited when they saw the finished project and I am happy to finally find a creative home for all those toys and equipment.

  2. Laura J says:

    $50 to spend at Home Depot? Where would I begin? OK, I guess I’d pit it towards a compound miter saw. Yes, I have been dreaming of one of those . . . .

    Time to finish the new deck with outdoor curtains made from drop cloths!

    I would buy paint to refinish an old dresser I got from a friend.

    I would head to Home Depot immediately to buy peg board and wood to organize my messy garage using this post and your January post. My garage is a mess and in serious need of this great solution.

  6. Jen W says:

    I’d buy some stain/paint to try on some furniture. I’ve been reading your tips for so long that I need to jump in!

    I signed up and I would probably finish my shelving project for the garage. We have so many bins that I need to get off the ground and make things more organized.

  10. debbie says:

    Fantastic !!!! Your organization is perfect. Would purchase paint and really good brushes. Also, would like to try some pegboard. I never knew it had so many great uses. Cyndy, I don’t use twitter, facebook or linkedin so I won’t be eligible but that’s no problem. You are one of my favs !!!!!

    <3 Home Depot – always something interesting to pick up. Right now, I would probably purchase spray paint for some outdoor projects. Or some spring plants to brighten up the porch.
    Love your website! Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  14. Trudi says:

    Your garage project looks great! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. I know just what I’d do. My son is getting married in Sept and he and his soon-to-be bride have asked I make them the farmhouse bed from Ana White’s plans. I’ve got one leaving for college and one getting married all at the same time. This would be a welcome blessing!

  15. Jean says:

    I would love to add more pegboard organizers to our garage walls. Yours is awesome.

    I would love to take my gift card (hope, hope) to Home Depot and buy some gray paint for my bedroom!

  17. VickiGene says:

    Home Depot is a great place to take my morning walk. Up and down each aisle, I’m very familiar with the variety of products available. I find myself slowing when something sparks an idea — and, boy, do I have ideas (much to my husband’s dismay)!
    Thank you for the moss wreath idea today! I do love color. ;-)

  18. Jeri Redd says:

    I would paint my entryway now that I’ve redone the kitchen, update that entryway with some new color!

  19. lkdeli says:

  20. Angie T. says:

    Flowers for my garden

    I would most likely get some storage solutions (maybe shelving) for my garage. It’s such a mess…lol

  22. Melissa Leech says:

    Decisions! Decisions!! I am getting motivated to spruce up my front yard and backyard with some color. I’ve decided I would like to plant some climbing vines to hide the street traffic behind our home so I would be mostl likely spend the gift card getting that going(; I am so excited!! Also would love to make one of the beautiful wreaths you just posted <3 love it all!!
