Pegboard Creations




Can you believe these lovely works were created and inspired by construction pegboard? That's right...pegboard...the stuff used in retail shops and garages. Sigrid Calon uses pegboard in a whole new way to create unique wall art and floral wall dividers. She also translates the pegboard patterns into wonderful fabric creations. And how about the font stitched into the pegboard? What a way to write a message in your own space! This inspirational technique would look great around the home.
