Last Nights Brain Storm For The Dinning Room

Last night I was looking in some boxes to see what I may already have to put on the shelf and hang from some pegs. While I was doing this I was standing back looking at this new creation. I am really happy with how nice it turned out and was thinking that the peg board would look great extended to the dinning room.

The room extends another twelve feet. The hallway is in the center.

I would like to extend the peg board from the hallway opening to the other wall.

The spot above the desk is where I was planning on putting a plate rack to put my pewter dishes some day. So I was thinking it would be nice to have the plate rack designed into the peg board. I would want the plate rack to be designed similar to the quilt rack. So this was my brain storm last night. So what do you all think of this idea? Will this be to much or compliment?

On the way to Sams swimming lessons today we seen a car trailer parked along the road with scrap lumber on it & a large sign reading free scrap lumber. There were some long pieces in there. What can I say but one mans scraps are a treasure for me.

Blessings Til Next Time!


  1. Man, I missed out there!I would have filled my car up! I think it would be awesome to go all the way around--shelf with peg board. Man, I would L-O-V-E to have that myself!

  2. I've got my order in with hubby for my peg rack Lara. LOL. Inspired by yours:)
    I like the brain storm of extending it to the other side. That's the way the Amish do it ya know. Would look great! I'm not sure about putting a plate rack in there. I'm the type of person you have to show me a picture, ya know:) Good luck though!

  3. Hmmmmm... I like the idea of extending the peg rack but not sure of a plate rack. Unless you put it above the door since it's in the middle of the wall.


  4. Go for it. You can do tons of things with a peg rack and they look good in any room.


  5. I think it would look great to extend the peg rack. Free lumber... wow, that's so awesome!!
