DIY Wall Hooks

IMG_5862

Materials:

1- 1×6 Pine Board (1 board allowed for the 3 different wall hooks you see pictured)

Wall Hooks – sourced from Hobby Lobby (they are frequently 50% off)

1 inch black screws (quantity dependent on how many hooks you plan to make)

Stain color of choice (we used Special Walnut by Minwax)

1/4 inch drill bit (attachment for your drill to make a hole in the metal wall hook)

2 inch black screws (quantity dependent on number of wall hooks you make)

This budget friendly DIY can cost as little as $40 for all 3 wall hooks.  Hobby Lobby frequently offers their drawer pulls and metal wall hooks at 50% off.  You can find each hook at these links – Single Retro Iron Hook, Triple Retro Iron Hook, single iron hook (not available online).  If you don’t want to wait for the hooks to go on sale, you can use a 40% off mobile coupon for one item.

Steps:

  • Stain the board and allow to dry.  Do not discard the towel used for staining as you will  need it again to stain edges after you cut your board
  • While your board is drying, you will drill the holes in the metal hooks to allow for ease of attaching them to the wood board.  Attach the drill bit to your power drill, mark where you want the holes for the screws, leverage the metal hook on an sturdy surface to allow for some overhang for your drill, securely hold the hook with one hand on the surface while you drill a hole, discard metal shards and repeat until you have 2 holes in each of the larger metal hooks.  No drilling is required for the individual hooks.
  • Measure out the size you want for each wall hook.  To utilize one board as we did, measurements are as follows: 1 Single Hook – 7 inches, 3 hook – approx. 23 1/4 inches & 5 hook – approx 41.5 inches.
  • Stain raw edges after you cut each piece
  • Center metal hooks on board and attach them using the 1 inch black screws
  • Once boards have completely dried, you can attach them to your wall using the 2 inch screws.  We recommend finding the stud in the wall to ensure they are secure and withstand holding the weight of your goods over time.

Our 5 hook set was added above a shoe bench in our garage to create a simple hall tree and catch all for jackets & book bags.

We’d love to see what you do with your DIY wall hooks, be sure to tag us @thehomesteadhaven on instagram and also use #thehomesteadhavenfeels.

This sweet couple wanted the gender of their 1st born to be a surprise.  Pulling together a gender neutral nursery can be a challenge but this momma pulled off the perfect space for their little bundle.  We’re inspired by this space and that’s why it is our first nursery room showcase.  #thehomesteadhavenroomshowcase  Sources: Crib – @wayfair, Bedding – @carouseldesigns , chair – @overstock , mirror – @target, Sign – etsy (check out @thehomesteadhaven, we will do custom orders), Chandelier – @potterybarn, @poshbaby.

We love everything about this room, from the hand-cut scallop accent wall pieces, the local artist cow painting to the custom made pillow that was original artwork of their oldest son.  (He wanted to do something special for Abigail’s nursery…all the feels, right?!) Our sweet friend, Blair didn’t leave out one detail pulling together this beautiful space for their little princess.  Not to mention, a lot of labor and love was poured into pamking her vision come to life by her hubby and parents.

+We also love that one of our #1 selling signs is a focal point in the room, our I AM HIS.  It can be found in our shop and is 10% off through Valentines, code – LOVE10 at checkout.

Happy Valentines friends.  We hope your day is full of so much love. ❤
