Pegboards are such a great option for vertical storage. They can literally be used in any part of the house, including the garage.

Recreate this handbag storage wall by designating a wall in your closet or bedroom, mount a pegboard ( You can find Pegboards at The Container Store, Home Depot or Amazon) add hooks wherever you like. Use larger hooks to get more storage. This way you can hang two or three bags on one hook. A Bowl Full Of Lemons does it so beautifully here. Add as many hooks and hang whatever you want.
2. Repurpose A Wine Rack For Storing Clutches
