If you like to dabble in the world of DIY baked goods, you know the hobby comes with a lot of random tools. All those cookie cutters, wooden spoons, measuring cups, canisters of flour ... the list goes on. Luckily, it's all pretty cute stuff, which means it'll look downright adorable on a pegboard. Here's how to store your baking gear while also putting it on display.

How To Build & Hang a Kitchen Pegboard

3 Tips for Turning a Pegboard into a Baker's Dream

1. Hang your cookie cutters.

Cookie cutters may as well double as wall art when not in use. Just get some S-or J-hooks and arrange them on the pegboard so that the cookie cutters fit together almost like puzzle pieces. If you have a ton of cookie cutters, you can get longer hooks and stack them, a few cookie cutters deep. While you're at it, add hooks to your measuring cups, spoons, and other odds-and-ends that make sense.

2. Make a place for your rolling pin.

French rolling pins are a little hard to store (no matter where you put them, they always seem to roll away). Hang two J-hooks so that the distance between them is only slightly shorter than your rolling pin. Then, just drop the pin into the hooks. This way, it'll be easy to grab when you need it and it'll add some texture to your pegboard.

3. Get creative with containers.

That thing holding the parchment paper? It's technically a hanging glass vase, but it's the perfect diameter to slide a roll in and out. And the thing holding wooden spoons and pastry brushes? Well, that's technically a planter! By adding some surprising containers, the pegboard has lots of visual interest and just as much functionality.


There's nothing a pegboard can't do. A pegboard as a spice rack? Easy! A pegboard as a coffee station? Adorable! The possibilities are endless. Follow along in our new mini series to see a pegboard used eight different ways.
