Step 1: Design Your Arch 

Using a pencil, sketch the desired shape of your arch on the MDF board. Then, carefully cut along the outline using a cordless jigsaw. Take your time to ensure smooth and precise cuts.


 Step 2: Create Pegboard Holes 

With your drill and round bit, drill holes evenly spaced along the arch, approximately every 3 inches. These holes will serve as the pegboard-style system where you can insert wooden dowels to hang your pilates accessories.

Step 3: Sand and Smooth 

Once you have successfully cut your arch, use sandpaper to smooth out any rough edges or surfaces on the arch. Pay close attention to the corners and edges to ensure a polished finish.


Step 4: Paint in Two Tones 

Get creative with your color scheme by painting the arch in two FUN tones. Apply a base coat of paint and allow it to dry completely before adding a second coat. I used the second colour on the dowel ends and shelves for the pegboard, this two-tone effect will add visual interest to your organizer.

Step 5: Cut & Insert Dowels 

Cut the dowels into pieces of your preferred length using the jigsaw. Insert these dowel pieces into the drilled holes on the arch as soon as the paint coats are dry and ready to use. These dowels will act as pegs for hanging your pilates equipment securely.


Step 6: Install on the Wall 

Using screws and your drill, securely mount the painted arch pegboard organizer onto the wall of your pilates space. Make sure it is level and stable before hanging your accessories.
