Build A Shallow Pegboard Cabinet For Extra Storage

Build a Shallow Pegboard Cabinet for Extra Storage

Need some extra storage in your house, but don't have the room for a full closet? The Family Handyman has a guide for a shallow, pegboard-equipped closet that you can fit just about anywhere.

Ideally, you'd remove some drywall to fit this cabinet in place, so this trick isn't for renters -- but it would work well in a small house without a lot of storage. Once you've done that, building the cabinet is the simple part -- just get some pegboard, some casing that matches the trim in your house, and some small shelves. From there you can hang or store anything you want close by.
