To prevent misplaced tools, paint a silhouette of each tool on the pegboard, so it's obvious where it goes. I've read this suggestion many times: here and here and here, for example.
Domino magazine even shows doing the same thing with pegboard used for pots and pans. Update on May 10, 2010: Domino Magazine has folded, and its web site is gone.
(Of course, not everyone agrees - here's one who doesn't use tool outlines.)
But if you do want to use tool outlines on a pegboard, here's another alternative: use tool outline decals.
