Just Hangin' Out--Project 2 of My 4 in 5 Day Challenge

Project 2 in my self induced 4 projects in 5 days challenge started much the same as project 1.  This project was inspired by some old wooden hangers I had.  I used 3 old fence boards and screwed them together with scrap wood on the back.  I had to figure out where I wanted the hangers so that I could put the boards in the right place.

I then washed some color on the wood, after a quick sanding.

I had originally planned on using drawer knobs but spied the spools while digging for the right knobs and decided on them instead.  First I drilled a hole all the way from the front through the back in the exact spot I wanted the spool centered,  This gave me a mark on the back to drill next to so I would hit the spools in the right place. I hot glued the spools to the front just to hold them in place.  I then drilled from the back next to the "mark" hole on either side and put two long screws into each spool so they would be good and secure.
Now came the fun part, thinking of all of the uses for this simple project!
Magazine holder,



Great for towels,

It would be great for a beautiful collection of necklaces, in a sewing room for fabric, in a mud room for scarves and mittens, and...What ideas do you have?

  8. great idea! I like the mags and the towels the best!
    super creative.
    4 in 5 ??? It's so hot here, I'm dreading even thinking about a project. I need to paint and I don't think it will even cure in this heat (94) and humidity!
    Keep 'em coming!

  9. What a GREAT idea! ...and I love that color - if you don't mind my asking what paint did you use? I'm re-doing the furniture in my sunroom in shore colors and that might just be right for my wicker desk.
