After painting, the next step in the #garagemakeover was the installation of the Wall Control Metal Pegboard wall. I have been looking forward to having this pegboard in the garage after installing and using a mini setup in my utility hallway.
I am, by nature, highly disorganized and tend not to put things back where they belong. That results in me being frustrated by not being able to find what I need when I need it! I can't even express the joy I find in being able to find what I need on the utility wall pegboard! Bonus, now that everything has a place that I can see, I find myself consistently putting things back.
That's why I was so looking forward to seeing the pegboard go up in the garage. I was itching to get everything in place so I could start using it!
Many thanks to the family owned company, Wall Control, for providing all the pegboard panels and accessories for our project. Wall Control is made in the USA, right up the road from us in Georgia.
Take a look at our Wall Control installation:
Wall Control Product:
We started by determining where we wanted to place the pegboard. We had a lot of discussion about how high it should be placed and how far from the window. We used the Bosch laser level to insure level placement of the panels. Here we are looking for the studs inside the walls. Ideally, the panels should be placed on the studs, but the included wall anchors can be used if the panels don't line up with the studs. (None of our panels lined up with any of the studs!)
The install for the panels is as follows: hold up a panel, mark the screw hole placement, if using wall anchors, drill a hole large enough for the anchor, add the anchor, use a mallet to tap anchors into the wall, put the panel in place, and screw it to the wall. All the hardware you need for installation is included with the panels.
This was one of the first projects on our list when we decided to makeover my garage. After using Wall Control panels in three projects (craft closet, laundry room, utility hallway), we knew it would be perfect in the garage! We are really happy with how it looks and functions. Steph is ready to have it installed in her garage (but sadly they don't make purple panels yet)!
