DIY Nerf Gun Storage Wall

As my boys gets older, their interests in toys change, often daily. Right now, one of their favorite things is nerf guns. Especially my youngest. He loves his nerf guns. He has big ones, small ones, strange ones, and ones I am not sure how to operate. But, with so many different styles, shapes, and types, we have SOOO many and no where to store them. They had been sitting on the floor of their closets taking up so much space. My husband suggested to hang them on the wall, so we headed to Lowes and picked up a few items to get them up off the floor and on to the wall. It was probably the simplest project I have worked on.

What you need:
  • Hardboard Peg Board
  • Spray Paint
  • Peg Board Hooks
  • Screws
  • Wall Anchors
  • Peg Board Spacers
  • Drill
  • Screwdriver

How to make:

1. Spray paint peg board in what ever color you'd like. I chose silver/metal color. Took me two coats. Let dry completely.

2. Decide where you will hang the board. Will need a good sized open wall.
3. Hold the peg board in place on the wall and using a pencil, mark the holes in the corners where you want the screws to hang the peg board.

4. Using the drill, make holes for the anchors. To make it easier, I used self drilling anchors. Insert the anchors.

5. Place one spacer onto each screw and while holding the peg board into place, screw into each anchor.

6. Place the peg board hooks around the peg board and rearrange as needed to fit your nerf guns.

7. Hang your nerf guns! We purchased baskets and lined with a tin mini loaf pan to hold our bullets and darts.

It's a perfect solution to keep all our guns up and off the floor and keep them organized and ready to go when ever they need them. Now, they are asking for hooks to hang their wands up! I guess I'll head to grab some more hooks.
