1. A Place to hang quick summertime accessories:
a. a denim jacket for eves or the movies
b. wraps to throw in bag on the way out. Wraps are great to have in summer. (Great to keep sun off shoulders outside + keeps AC chill off while inside stores).
c. an extra straw tote
d. a hat to keep the desert sun off my head and a small mirror I picked up at Goodwill. (Good to check lipstick before going out the door.)
2. Just as they are: Laundry Room Hooks
A quick & convenient place to hang dry some laundered items like maxi skirts + dresses and tunic tube and tank tops.
A little stain and some sand paper to the edges
helped give some new wood an old look.
Jeff pre-drilled the holes for the hooks
as well as the holes for the screws to anchor the board to wall.
The laundry room wall before was RED.
Reusing some of the existing grey paint we had, it was easy to paint over & create the continuous flow in our home - even with it being a rental.
Repurpose something unique like outdoor faucet handles,
spotted on Pinterest. Anthropology also has a great selection of knobs to choose from. but to save a little more, also check out Marshalls Home Goods
Found this pic on Pinterest today... The space is the same size and basic set up as ours, but my doors open in and block this POV (point of view).
This is another great look with hooks for an entry
~ Board from Lowe's (under $10) or recycle with an old timber or architectural molding.
~ Recycled knobs from our Florida Kitchen makeover (I saved when I switched to cup pulls) came in handy now.
~ Jacobean Wood Stain + Chip brush + Sandpaper (already had.)
~ Drill + screws: Anchor board to studs (already had)
TOTAL COST: Under $10 - just for the board
I'm sure this will come in handy in the winter again so Jeff doesn't have to bring his leather jacket & scarf upstairs everyday... Although it's been so HOT here in AZ, I'm sure he kinda forgot what the winter cold is like :)
Got a space being under-utilized or
a quirky space in a rental you want to redo?
HOOKS can HELP!
Thanks for stopping by!
