DIY: Pegboard Organization + Display

My husband and I are heading to the lumber yard to pick up some pegboard pieces. I am going to use them for displays at my next craft fair, but thinking this will go perfectly in the work room for now. As I was looking for inspiration I saw some really cool examples that use pegboard in different rooms of the house…laundry room, craft room, inspiration boards, etc. This isn’t just for the garage anymore:) Here are a few fun examples…

Sorry for the blurry image, but his is one of my faves!

Share with me your ideas! If you have any shelving or container finds that would be good for this…please let me know! Will hopefully share the pictures of the finished product!
