The painting process took a bit of patience and planning. I wanted to create a layout that had colors, tints, and hues much like the Project Runway workroom that originally inspired this idea. But before I tell you how I painted the pegboard grid, we need to review a little ART 101.
For the top row of the pegboard, I created a tint of each of these custom hues. Remember tints are made from mixing a color with white. EXAMPLE: For the top of the second column, I mixed the hue from the bottom of the first column (B+C) with white (B+C+w).
This is what my pegboard looked like with all my colors, hues, and tints all in place. PS I just got a heck of a lot of use out of that one photo.
If you put a big piece of poster board or a canvas under your pegboard, you could turn it into an unintentional masterpiece!
The drink containers hang securely from the pegboard for additional storage.
I am so pleased with my pegboard makeover. It adds so much color to my craft room, and it will help to keep me organized and (sort of) sane while I am working on my projects. What do you think of the colorful makeover? Is it too busy for your taste or is it just bright enough?
