Start out with the peg board. You can have the board be a square, or you can cut the corners off for a more decorative feel.  Take the two 4 inches pieces of wood and space them 10 inches apart on the front of the board, Make a few marks to show the position that they will be in.  To figure out the position needed to space them out in the back is when you place  the block on the front of the board, count how many holes down, and across, move the block to the back and screw into place, buy using the guide on the front.  Use 3 large screws for each.img_2191

Once both blocks are in place, attach the hinges. I measured the legs to be about 15 inches apart. Since my hinges are the same width as my legs, I measured  hinge to hinge. Once they are secured to the main board, screw in the legs . Stand them up to make sure they are sturdy.

Next comes the fun part!  Spray pant them any color that you want! I took the legs off for this part, and did front and back. That is something that you can decide . I wanted the legs of my boards to be alternate colors, so I had painted them separately with acrylic paint.

I have a black boarder around my displays, that I painted on with acrylic paint. Make your boards to match you!

Here is the finished product! You can also use dowel rods as pegs to hang jewelry with.
