Shaker design, with its clean and simple lines is a growing choice in today's homes. The peg rail molding, a classic standard of Shaker style, is a nice addition to a room that provides versatile storage opportunities. In a hallway, the molding has convenient hooks for coats and hats. On the walls of a kid's bedroom, the pegs are handy for hanging clothes and gear. Or use the molding as the Shakers designed, to hang an extra chair or display shelf. A good source for Shaker materials and furnishings is www.shakerworkshops.com.
A carpenter will install an 8 foot wall in a hallway with 3-and 1/2-inch wide pegboard molding with beaded edges for $72, or you can buy the molding for $50 and install it, and pocket a 30 percent saving. You'll need a carpenter's level, miter box with backsaw, drill, bit and wood screws.
Use the carpenter's level to determine the height of the rail on the wall and make a light pencil mark as a guideline. Position the molding and attach with wood screws. Figure it'll take about two hours from start to finish. Paint or finish the molding before installing it on the wall for the best results.
If you can't find ready-made pegboard molding, you can make your own using pine 1-by-4 lumber and pegs.
