I bought some cute hardware at World Market last month. I loooove that store and the closest one closed a few years ago. sad sad face. But I was in Indy last month and I was on the hunt for a rug for my bedroom…didn’t get one there, but I did buy some hooks for our front entry. I thought it would be nice to add some by the door for people to hang purses and coats when they drop by.
So this corner previously looked like this:
And now it looks like this:
I started out with only one piece of board, but it wasn’t wide enough to go into any studs. So I attached another board to the back–instead of unscrewing the hooks and starting all the way over.
The first piece was a scrap piece of wood from my garage…I ended up having to buy a longer piece from Lowes. So the old adage of measure twice, cut once–yeah it is probably true. It could also say–measure twice and collect materials before starting a project. Well at least I never claimed to being a perfect diyer 🙂 And also, I’m not sure it didn’t turn out ok in the end. I now have a little shelf to rest the picture on. You know, until I get around to hanging it back up. I’m glad it is done. I have too many projects around this house/basement/garage so that is one off the list! And now there is a place for people to hang their stuff. Or a place to hang, well, my scarf and Emily’s coats.
