Quick Closet Fix

Have you thought of using pegboard in your closet to help organize those many small items you seem to accumulate for every season?

A pegboard is great for keeping items off the floor, in sight, and within easy reach. The board can be found in stores in large sheets. After you measure your closet walls, have the sheet cut to fit at your local home improvement store.

Place wooden shims (thin pieces of wood) between the board and your walls in order to attach the backs of hooks. U-shape hooks can be used for ties, belts and purses. Wire baskets can be attached to provide room for other small items.

Once the pegboard is in place, paint the board(s) the color of your walls for a seamless, clutter-free look!
