1x4s and Pegboard Question


Greetings,

I have recently undertaken the challenge of streamlining my garage and I am almost where I want to be. I am having a shed put in my backyard to house my lawnmower, wheelbarrow and get a lot of the bulky items out. I also invested in a tool box that has allowed me to declutter a metal shelf I already had. All that's left is to get some sensible wall storage to hang some misc. tools (mostly yard and garden tools). The original owner of the house had taken what i assume are 1x4's and secured them to the wall with nails in studs and then just put nails in it to act as hooks. This works from a "get's the job done" standpoint but is very inefficient. My plan is to use these: http://amzn.com/B0057XFZOG to run 8ft of pegboard on one side of the window (see pictures) and 4ft on the other side. Sorry for all the rambling but if you're still with me my question is; If i don't want the peg board as high as the top 1x4 would it be better to just add another 1x4 lower on the wall and secure the pegboard to the the lower of the two original 1x4's and my new one, or should I just remove the 1x4's and use something like durahooks mounting spacers ([url]http://amzn.com/B000LEANKC

[Edited to correct second link]

Thanks,
Kev

Kev ,

sounds like a matter of personal preference to me . I I had the 1x4's on hand I would likely just add the board and be done.

The original 1x4's look rather old . They might be painted with lead paint and you would be putting some lead dust into the air when you removed them .

Good call on the old paint hadn't even thought about the possibility of lead paint. Thanks!

They sell pegboard in the big box stores, white and brown, why pay shipping?

I have prime so i get free 2 day shipping also, looking for something a little more durable than what the local lowes and HD have. Theirs already looks like its dried out and beginning to fall apart and i believe the stuff I linked to is wood not standard hardboard. Sears will ship same product to store but wants $25 more than amazon. I'd prefer to get it from sears but not for that much more.

I use the Rubbermaid fast trac system in my garage and my equipment trailer and love it.
Home Depot sells it in the storage area. (where the wire shelving is sold)

1x4s and Pegboard Question


If the building is built from 1960 to 1978 have 25% chance of lead paint. It is easy to check, paint stores, HD, Lowes, sell lead test kits for about $10. You cut into the paint with a razor knife down to the wood, dab one of the swabs on and it turns pink if there is lead. Precautions apply if you are disturbing more than 6 square feet, demolition, or removing and replacing windows. As the homeowner you are not responsible for the regulations, but find out if you have to take it somewhere special to dispose of it. They may require you to use special bags. For your own safety, wear a good dust mask, remove the pieces without breaking them, bag them, vacuum the area with a HEPA filter, wipe down walls and floor with damp rags, bag and dispose filter & rags with wood.

I like the flexibility of the peg board for the garage but I foresee that fast track stuff having a place on one of the walls In my shed once i get one.!

I'd recommend using the 1x2 that are on the wall and fortify with new 1x2 that you put up where needed. cut your 1x4 down to 1 1/2" so you do not loose available hanging space behind the pegs, you cannot hang the little peg hooks where a 1x crosses behind them only out in the open areas.

Kev ,

I was thinking the same as hand drive . You would lose the ability to put hooks where the 1x4 's are . If you want to leave the 1x4's , just mount the spacers to the 1x4's .

I have sheet styrofoam behind my pegboard.
It helps hold the hooks tight.

1x4s and Pegboard Question


So I got it all done today. I ended up using the lower of the existing one by fours and some furring strips as my other two braces and I mounted it to the strips and 1x4 with the mounting spacers so I wouldn't lose usable space from the extra support. I didn't go with the foam because I found that there was enough support and hook stability without it. I also painted it CBJ/union blue...maybe when it starts to cool down in the fall I will paint the rest of the garage "Stinger green". Once everything is dry and put back in order I will post pics.

For my non hockey fans this is stinger. The green in logos and such though is actually yellower like this wall stripe in my basement.
