Crafty Idea: Clothes Hook

My husband Don and I recently gave our laundry room a makeover. Nothing major was done, but we did add some more storage space and upgraded things a bit. We wanted to have somewhere to hang a few items, but the room opens out into our side deck, which means that there is not much you can do against the one wall. The solution was to add a clothes hook, so I had to come up with a crafty idea that would fit the limited space available.

So what do you think?

If you want to try this crafty idea, all you will need is a piece of wood and some simple screw-in finials.

  1. Measure your spacing and drill holes on your wood for where you will like to place your hooks.
  2. Sand and finish your wood with paint or wood stain (optional).
  3. Screw your finials in place using a double-ended screw. You may need to use shorter screws, depending on the thickness of your wood.
  4. Mount your finished clothes hook. To support the weight of what you are hanging, it is recommended to screw into a wall stud.

To hide the screws that hold the rack onto the wall, I placed the screws just under the finials so that when you screw the finials onto the wood you do not see the head of the screws.
