With two quick and cheap coats of chalkboard paint, Margaret Oomen transformed a standard pegboard panel into a customized domestic exhibition space. Her spoon collection made its debut—“I love the contrast of the warm golden woods against the black”—but she plans on rotating the displays. “I’d like to mount antlers and bones I’ve found and sketch animals around them,” she says.

Margaret Oomen created the perfect pegboard sourcing inspiration—and got a can of chalkboard paint—from the aisles of Home Depot.
