How to Paint a Peg Board

Peg boards usually only come in two colors -- brown or white -- and may not match your decor. Painting the boards makes them look a bit less like something that belongs in the garage. If using spray paint, it is best to do so outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.

Things You'll Need

  • Rubber gloves
  • Small table
  • Drop cloth or tarp
  • Lint-free cloth
  • Stain-blocking primer
  • Paint tray
  • Short-nap paint roller
  • Paint brush
  • Latex paint
  • Paint stirrer

Step 1

Put on the latex gloves. Move a table outdoors unless you already have a patio table. Cover the table with a drop cloth or tarp to protect it. Wipe off the peg board with a lint-free cloth and place it on the table.

Step 2

Open a can of stain-blocking primer and pour some into a paint tray. Roll a paint roller back and forth through the primer, then roll the primer over the peg board until the peg board is completely coated. Use a small brush to prime the edges. Allow the primer to dry completely.

Step 3

Stir, then pour the latex paint into a paint tray until the holding compartment is filled. Dip a short-nap roller in the tray and roll the paint around to completely cover the roller.

Step 4

Apply a thin layer of the paint to the peg board with the roller. Allow the first layer to dry, then paint it again.

Step 5

Wait 24 hours for the paint to cure before hanging or mounting items to the peg board.
