DIY // How to Install Shaker Pegs

We’re big fans of shaker pegs around here. They’re simple, elegant and can hang all. the. things! But even better, they’re super easy and quick to install.

Over the years, we’ve used these pegs to create simple shaker peg shelves in the kitchen and bathroom, shaker peg rails above wainscot, and shaker peg racks in the closet. They always look lovely and have become one of my favorite details to use around our old homes. Read on for our easy and quick DIY for installing shaker pegs in your own space.
