How to make these awesome Star Wars pegboards

My husband belongs to a Star Wars costuming group called the 501st, and I'm working on a costume so I can join, too. After going to a party at the home of another 501st member with a decked out Star Wars-themed garage, I decided that for my husband's birthday I'd give him a little Star Wars flair for our own garage. Since we have been talking about needing to organize our garage pretty much since day one, it made sense to combine Star Wars into our plans. And thus, the idea for the pegboards was born.

My tiny, kitschy, crafty, and Star Wars-y living space

It's easy to get wrapped up in trying to make your home perfect and coordinating and sticking to one certain look. I've tried for so long to stick to certain colour schemes, or a certain really specific look, and I was never completely happy and also could never get it quite right. Finally, I figured out that you shouldn't have to pick one thing you love and apply that to your decor, but instead apply everything you love to your decor. Like in my case I love kitschy, vintage things, as well as crafts and DIY, then mix in some Star Wars and dinosaurs and there you have it! It all combines to create a very kitschy, eccentric look.

A fully-pimped Star Wars room in a penthouse

Curbed ran a little highlight of an almost-$6-million-dollar apartment in Manhattan with three bedrooms — one of which is a fully pimped ode to Star Wars. This thing comes complete with full wall-and-ceiling starscapes, a large model of the Millenium Falcon, and shockingly-cute accessories that make the whole place look chic, not at all weird.
