While touring a historic home recently, I saw a potential for pegboard beyond the garage and woodshop. A smaller scale version, painted and edged in molding (for a makeshift frame) would be a pretty solution in many areas of the house. I can see a small, framed pegboard as backdrop above the sewing machine to hold pinking-shears, scissors, measuring tape and other tools. There are possibilities for pegboard organization in the playroom, child’s room and laundry area.
One key to organization is convenience. Sewing supplies that are tucked too far away in the back of a closet will be used less frequently and not readily put away again; Form and function must interweave if an organized home is to be sustainable.
Pegboard–it’s not just for the shop anymore.
