Installation Timelines: From Priming to Peg Shelf Perfection

The process of installing a stylish peg shelf involves several steps, each contributing to the overall timeline. Here's a breakdown of what you can expect:

  • Prepping and Priming the Wall: 1-2 hours [not including drying time]
    • Clean the surface thoroughly
    • Apply a suitable primer coat for better adhesion

  • Painting the Peg Rails: 90mins [not including drying time]
    • Allow proper drying time between coats
    • Sand between coats
    • Consider using a high-quality paint for durability

  • Mounting the Peg Rails: 30 mins
    • Measure and mark the desired layout
    • Securely attach the rails to the wall

  • Arranging Accessories and Decor: 10 mins
    • Hang coats, bags, or other items on the pegs
    • Strategically place decorative elements for visual appeal

Remember, these are approximate timelines, and the actual duration may vary depending on the size of the project, your skill level, and any unforeseen circumstances.
