I have had these hooks lying around since last year when I picked them up with a DIY project in mind. I knew that I wanted to create some sort of hook board but I was unsure whether I was going to use it for the kids or do something else with it. Initially, I had plans to hang it in the entryway but I knew that when it came down to it, one of the kids was going to hang off of it or something and it would get broken.
It would be perfect to hold my collection of necklaces – but it’s kind of awesome and I didn’t really wanted it stashed away in the master bedroom closet, either. Finally, I decided that I would hang it in the master bathroom where we’re most often getting ready for the day. There, we can enjoy the fantastic number hooks and have easy access to jewellery.
I purchased the plank of treated wood and measured four inches between each of the numbers. I glued, and screwed, each of the numbers into the board. At that point, I realised it was too long and I cut the side of the board. I love how unfinished it turned out, so I left the cut side exposed and didn’t sand or treat it, win-win since I didn’t need any tools.
When that was finished, I used picture hanging zig-zag things, attached to the back side of the board and attached it to the wall after measuring and leveling, with drywall screws.
