Hey guys!  Hope you all had a great Wednesday 🙂

I have a fun project to share today!

I started with a 1×8 board from Lowe’s that I cut to about 2′ long.  I used a different paint method on this board and I love how it turned out so I am going to share it with you in my next post.  So for now… Here is my board after it is painted and ready to go.

I also purchased 3 hooks and a pipe clamp from Lowe’s.  You can find the pipe clamps in the plumbing section.  I bought the smallest 3″ clamp and it was under $2.

My next step was attaching them to my board.  I used my drill to attach my hooks first.

Then it was time to attach the clamp.  After attempting to drill a hole in the darn thing for 30 minutes I decided to hammer a hole in it instead.  I just put a thick nail on one of the little openings and hit it hard with a hammer. Done.  I then wished I would have tried that 30 minutes ago.

I used a 3/4″ wood screw to attach it to my board.

Finally, I added to picture hangers to the back of it and hung it up.  Mine is on the wall leading just into the garage.  I dropped a mason jar into the ring and added a few cotton blossom twigs I found at Michael’s.

I love it.  It makes me happy when I look at it. 🙂

I’m thinking these would be super cute hand towel hooks for the bathroom.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

I will show you my new paint method in my next post so stay tuned.  It’s super easy and distresses perfectly… Whoop!
