I don't know about you, but I love hooks! There's never enough places to hang bags, backpacks, coats and hats in my house! Even with hooks readily available, the kids love to come home from school and just drop everything on the floor. Is it just me or do you have that problem, too? I'm thinking it's universal with kids everywhere!
Creating a hook board is pretty simple. This one was made from pieces of a shipping crate that I took apart. All of the holes and stamping give it character!I'm loving the red stamped "up" on this board. I used a light coat of white over that board just so the stamping would show through.
And this white, chippy doorknob makes a perfect middle hook on this piece!
I painted the boards before assembling them together. I used America Paint Company paints in Peacock and Surfboard, plus a vintage white.
After painting, I used 2 horizontal cross pieces of wood on the back, with some wood glue for extra hold, and nailed the boards to it. The ledge was simply part of the crate that I didn't take apart. I glued that to the assembled boards and added screws from the back.
I picked up a few old, black hooks from a flea market a while back. They look great along with the old doorknob.
This functional piece would be great to prop some family photographs on. Or some vintage goodies like these old slide holders that I have (one of my favorite finds!).
I'll be back soon with another project to share.
I'm feeling pretty stinking creative again!
Let's keep in touch...
Your comments make me smile :) 'Til next time!
