Knob hanger

Every afternoon my daughter (kindergarten) swings open the kitchen door from the garage and promptly tosses her back pack on the floor before going on her merry way. ERRR aggravation to me. So my husband decided to hang a nail next to the door where she could put up her back pack ad coat. It looked horrible! The door is at the end of the kitchen so I had the pleasure of looking at this lovely nail all day long.
a 1x4 and 3 knobs later I am a happy gal.

Supply list:
14 inch 1x4
3 knobs (on sale at hobby lobby for 1.50 each!)
4 wood screw caps
stain and screws

Step 1:
Stain or paint the wood

Step 2:
Pre drill holes for the knobs. I also drilled larger holes on the backside to counter sink the nut.

Step 3:
Insert knobs and cut off the back end of the screws so they can sit flat against the wall. I used the dermal for this.

Step 4:
Screw to wall and pop in screw caps.

    1. I was going to just go buy something then I saw the price tag. A similar one at Hobby Lobby where I bought the pieces was like $30. Saw that and was like heck no! Maegan you can so do it!

  8. of course like your web site but you need to
    check the

    spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are
    rife with spelling problems

    and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will certainly come

    back again.
    Stop by my weblog ...
