First cut the 1″ x 2″ boards to frame your cut piece of pegboard and dry fit the pieces.

DIY Pegboard HooksThe next step is a GAME CHANGER…Oh yes, it’s AWESOME TIME!!  These Minwax Wood Finishing Cloths are perfect for your DIY projects needing stain.  They come with the gloves and you literally wipe it on and you’re done…BOOM!  We LOVE the Natural Oak Stain.

IMG_0989Here is where we get to use our favorite tool everrrrr!!  We used 5/8″ nail and attached the 1×2’s from the backside of the pegboard.  Ladies and gents…if you don’t have this nail gun, you must!!  Pinky swear!!

IMG_0992Now that the frame is attached…flip er’ over and pre-drill holes if you are going to use the corner brackets so that you don’t split the wood.


IMG_0996Now that that is done, wait for it…Tah-dah!!  Oh, we forgot to tell you that we may or may not have embroidery stitched some yarn to add a cool message for D-A-D!!  We know, the yarn is a little light but its all we had…so to pop it out, we added in some colored embroidery thread.
