I thought... YES! I can make my pegboard look like that! Its not a corkboard but its the same idea. Though I couldn't find anyone online that had done it, I knew it could be done. I have hot glue, an electric staple gun, and I know I can get those nail heads at Home Depot or Lowes. Plus, everyone seems to be doing something in burlap and I want to join in on the fun. Burlap is cheap and sturdy and... I love it! The weave of burlap is so loose that I wouldn't have to cut holes for the pegs and I could sort of see through it so it was easy to find the peg holes.
Here is what I came up with.
Here is what it would have looked like without the burlap and nail heads. Ooooh look! It matches the baskets on the shelf! But oh-so-ugly!
And this is what it looks like with all the paper, bags, etc. all hung up. eeeeee! I LOVE it!
I just walk in there and stare at it. It makes me so happy!
The chest freezer underneath makes a perfect place to wrap presents.
I will show you some more details and how-to's in another post.
Update : Here is my post about the details of making this.
