Dress It Up – Most pegboard comes in two colors�boring white and boring brown. But it doesnt have to stay that way. Roll on a coat of primer followed by gloss or semigloss paint (glossy paints are easier to wipe clean). Apply light coats so you dont clog the holes. Then snazz it up with a frame. After we attached our pegboard to a 1×3 frame, we added corner blocks and trim with hot-melt glue�no fancy miter cuts or fasteners needed.
