Part of the fun of decorating is “making”, or at least it is for me. I love having an empty space and dreaming about what it could turn into.
I have a headboard in my bedroom, but I needed something to fill some of the space above it. When I came across Deb’s tutorial for an embroidery hoop wreath an idea started to form. I knew that a few wreaths would look perfect above my bed, and the flowers would provide some color for my room.
All I needed was something on which to hang the wreaths.
My garage houses a pretty large pile of reclaimed fence wood and I knew I wanted a bit of that texture in my room. Old wood has so much character from all of the years it has been weathered and worn…it is like it has a story to tell. All I needed was one of those pieces of wood and some hooks from Hobby Lobby (if you are patient you can generally find these 50% off!).
The hook rack was simple to make. Let me show you how I did it.

Gather your materials:
How to make a wall mounted hook rack:
Cut your wood to size and stain or paint as desired.
Figure out where you want the hooks on your board and place them (I tend to eyeball things like this, but you can certainly use precise measurements if you want to).
Screw the hooks onto the board.
Apply sawtooth hangers on the back of your wood piece for hanging.
These racks can be made in any size, and you can use different wood finishes and styles of hooks to create the look you want. You do need to remember that if you can not mount these to the studs in the wall, you need to use anchor mounts (if you need a video on how to attach anchor mounts to the wall let me know).
