When I think of pegboards I think of garages, workshop spaces, and tools. But with some creativity, paint, and the right space, pegboards can make for some really unique decor. Here are 21 ways to use a pegboard you may not have seen before.
1. On A Kitchen Island
Add an extra element of fullness to the hub of your home by hanging lighter cooking tools from a kitchen island pegboard. The Kitchn has more details on their blog.

Display a friendly message to guests as they arrive. It would be so easy to regularly change out the message with seasonal words or other words of inspiration.
