    There was some clear judgment from your friends the last time they saw the state of your drawers.


    You're totally judging them for rummaging around your drawers, but regardless... It's time for some ~early~ spring cleaning.

    Make these revolving peg boards and they won't have anything to say.


    They wish they had your hardware skills.

    You'll need a few things.

    Peg board, $22.34

    Picture frames, $12.50

    2 angle irons, $14.24

    Spray paint, $3.87

    8 x 1¼-inch lath screws, $12.20

    #8 flat washers, $10

    Wood glue, $2.97


    Drill bits

    Circular saw

    Pegboard hooks, $8.99

    Tape measure

    Drywall anchors (if desired), $7.99

    1. Take out the back of the frame ($12.50) and trace it onto the peg board ($22.34). Cut along the tracing using a circular saw.

    It's a good idea to use an eye mask for this step.

    2. Glue the peg board into the frame using your wood glue ($2.97).

    3. Spray paint ($3.87) the inside of the frame and predrill two ⅛-inch holes on the frames right side top and bottom.

    4. Knock on the wall to find a stud and pre-drill holes for the angle iron. Screw the iron in place.

    5. Repeat this step with the bottom angle iron leaving room for the height of the frame and a ½-inch gap.

    6. Attach the picture frame to both angle irons, fitting one #8 washer on the bottom and three on the top of each screw.
