Sewing Room Pegboard Wall


I added a pegboard above my sewing table a few months ago, and I love it. But I decided to jazz it up a bit.

I found this sewing machine image file for $0.99 here and thought why not add a sewing machine.

Printed it out with my Silhouette Cameo onto contact paper (I use contact paper for all my stencils, much cheaper than vinyl).

And to protect against bleed through I painted the inside edge of the stencil with matte medium. You can pick this up at any craft store in the paint section for about $5. Worth it!

paint-storage-ideasWhile searching around my craft room for paint for my sewing machine decal I realized these small craft paint bottles were scattered everywhere throughout my house. I rounded them up and stuck them all in an old tangerine crate. Don’t throw those crates out they fit craft paints perfectly! It’s like they were made for a second life as paint storage.

I’d love for you to follow along on Pinterest; Instagram; Facebook; & Twitter.

  1. I’m curious about the Matte Medium…I purchased some a while back and just had a chance to try it out with a stencil….it didn’t work at all and I’m wondering if I did something wrong? I used basic white contact paper as the stencil and it was on a piece of pallet wood, unfinished. The contact paper didn’t stick very well…but I used the Matte medium to seal all the edges. I still had a lot of bleed through. Does it need to be really thick? Or does it only work on a smooth surface? Or was I using the wrong type of contact paper? Any tidbits you can share with me? I appreciate it!!

    • The best way to prevent bleed through on pallet wood is to use mod podge. Works like a charm!

  2. This is a wonderful idea! Just one question though, where did you find the loopy holder for your scissors/ paint sponge? That is exactly what I’m looking at for my board.

    • Hey Denise! Yes I bought a box of pegboard organizers. It comes with a whole bunch of different pieces. It’s all made to hold tools so you just have to be creative with craft storage instead. I found mine at Lowes but here is an link to an example.

    • That holder is usually for holding screwdrivers and you can probably find them at any of the big box hardware stores or Harbor Freight.
