One of my summer goals is to get three projects accomplished that have been on my list forever. One of those projects is creating a hanger board. Originally, this was for the baby’s room, but in the meantime, I plan to use it for my jewelry. It’s a versatile enough piece to do both.
And I’m not kidding when I say this has been in the works for a while. I bought all of the knobs from Anthropologie back in 2012 (I still had them in the original bag with the original receipt!).
I wanted to use some reclaimed wood of some kind, and I sort of did. My husband built a stand for his aquarium, and he had some wood leftover, already stained! So now it was just a matter of putting all of the parts together.
First, we measured the wood for the bolt holes, and we measured each knob’s bolt to make sure we weren’t making the holes too big. One of the bolts was actually smaller than the others.
Then he widened the holes in the back to accommodate the nuts.
We placed each one, and then he sawed off the extra bolt parts from the back of the wood.
And after adding some hanging fasteners, voila! I now have a jewelry hanger for my room! Project #1 done!
