DIY Nerf Gun Wall. All for less than $50. The perfect gift for kids who love Nerf guns! 
Nerf guns. I feel like they are every mom’s nightmare. Nerf puts out 300 new models a year and no matter how many guns kids already have, it is never enough. This is HALF of my brothers stash of Nerf guns. HALF. Isnt that insane?! When I saw them last they were in different places all over the house and garage and I wanted to help them find a way to store them, but in a fun way. Thanks to my handy husband and my creative vision we came up with this Nerf gun storage wall. For only $50, you can recreate this yourselves!
DIY Nerf Gun Storage Wall. All for less than $50. The perfect gift for kids who love Nerf guns!

    • Mount the pegboard to the wall with mounting screws
    • We had them cut it into three segments so we could fit it in to the car.
    • Then place the mounting screws on each corner. You want to use the mounting kind since you are hanging several Nerf guns on it.
    • Lay out your pegs
    • The amount of pegs you need, depends on how many guns you have.
    • I started from the top with the smallest guns and guns they had doubles of and worked my way down.
    • It took a while to figure out which configuration I thought looked best.
    • I have seen some people outline the guns on the pegboard so the kids know which guns go back in which spot, but my brothers are old enough to throw them back up where they got them from!

If you make your own, be sure to share. I will add them to this post for everyone to see!

      I used different sizes for different guns. (larger for the heavier guns, smaller for the lighter ones)

    In? How did you?

      Did you use the mounting screws specifically for the boards? They make it so the board isn’t flush to the wall. It should come out a little farther from the wall.

    My son really likes these Nerf guns. He is throwing them around the house and then I force him to put them in a box. There is a question: why I need a box when I can make the most wonderful guns wall board. Thank you for the brilliant idea.

    Love the idea of starting organization skills early in life. With a background in special education, I found that daily living skills were lacking for all children whether they had special needs diagnoses or not. I came up with the idea of dresser knobs that help with sorting of clothes.

      Hey Sheree! I got most of the items from Lowes and then the peg buckets from Amazon. It all came to less than $50 total for me!
