Hey there!  I hope you’ve had time to put your house back together after the holidays. Everything is back in our storage closet and now it’s feeling pretty empty around here, so I’m wanting a few new decor pieces.  Do you feel like that after Christmas?  Tell me I’m not alone!

I’ve been looking for ideas to add to our home decor and especially the fireplace mantle for days.  But unfortunately, all the local stores haven’t fully restocked after the rush of holiday shopping.  Or I maybe it’s that I haven’t seen anything that I just had to have yet.  If you need some inspiration for your home, go check out our winter decor ideas Pinterest board.

I have a long list of project goals for 2019.  Some are bigger projects but some a small like the one I’m sharing with you today!  I’ve been looking for a row of hooks for my son’s room for a while now but haven’t found anything I love.  I wasn’t in a rush and figured I’d get one when I found what I really liked.

We use his room (since he’s away at college) as a guest room also.  When we had family here for Thanksgiving I really wanted someplace our guests could hang a bag, coat, towel or whatever.  Hobby Lobby had these great metal name slot hooks so I decided to just make my own coat rack.  But unfortunately, I ran out of time and didn’t get to make it before the holidays.  This simple diy project was the first on my to-do list for the new year!

How to Make a Farmhouse Style Row of Hooks in 5 Simple Steps

1.  Purchase Supplies

I was hoping to use a piece of scrap wood we had left from my daughter’s pallet wood headboard project but decided to go with a new.  So off to Lowes Home Improvement I went to grab a 1in x 6in x 6ft whitewood board for less than $6.  The nice employee at the store even cut the board for me to the length I wanted, which was 34″.  Score!  I also got some decorative screws since the hooks didn’t come with any.

2.  Sanding & Staining

I quickly sanded the board’s edges by hand so they weren’t as severe…

then stained the board with this Minwax stain I had on hand from previous projects…

I like to use old t-shirts when staining.  They are soft & lint free so perfect for applying the stain.  I quickly added a coat of the espresso stain and wiped off the excess since I didn’t want a solid color as I was going for a more rustic look.

After staining with the espresso I decided to add this gray stain leftover from the pallet headboard, to add some more dimension…

Here you can see how adding the gray stain added some more depth…

3.  Adding the Name Slot Hooks

I measured out where I wanted each hook on the board and screwed each hook in by hand.

4.  Hanging the Completed Row of Hooks

We attached the board right to the wall using wall anchors so that it would be secure.  I was worried about how we would hang this project since we don’t have the tools or the know how to cut keyhole hangers in the back.  Luckily we were able to put the screws in the middle of the name slot which would be covered.  Yay!

5.  Cards for the Name Slot Hooks

Using my computer & printer made easy work of creating cards for the name slot hooks. I used the Bradley Hand font and printed the words out on white card stock.

I wasn’t super creative with the names I used for the hooks.  Haha!  But really you could label each hook with whatever you choose.

Just trim each label to size for the slot
