How to Hang Pegboard in Your Garage
Determine the size of the pegboard required. Pegboard can be purchased in 4-foot by 8-foot sheets. You may want the whole wall to be faced with pegborad or may want to cut it down with a table or circular saw to the size desired.
Cut 2X4s to serve as the frame for your pegboard. You will need one piece for each side, cut to the same height as the pegboard.
Screw the 2X4s to the garage wall so that the on center distance between them is the same as the width of the pegboard. Use a level to ensure that the 2X4s are straight up and down.
Place the pegboard on the 2X4s. Use the level to make sure it is evenly placed and screw the board to the two by fours. The 2X4s will allow for space between the garage wall and the back of the pegboard to utilize pegboard hooks.
Cut one 2X4 to length and mount as above for each additional piece of pegboard. You can utilize the exposed half of the 2X4 from the previous piece of pegboard as one side of the frame.
