I’m trying to hold myself accountable to finish some of the projects on my to do list by posting each Friday about a project I’ve completed. For the most part these projects aren’t part of my daily or weekly household chores, although some weeks finishing those items is a challenge all in its own.
I knew I wanted the necklaces easily accessible in the bathroom where I would be getting ready. I also knew that the large empty and unused wall that flanks the sink and mirror would be the best place to hang an organizer.
Here is my solution:
I simply raided my parents’ house for an old wooden hanger. I chose one that would sit flat against the wall and the was thick enough to screw the hooks into. You could easily paint the hanger to have it match your decor, but I liked the natural wood.
At first I thought I might be able to screw the hooks in by hand, but after the second hook I knew my hands would never make it through that process. Thankfully, I worked on this project at my parents’ house and my dad simply brought me a pen and told me to mark where I wanted the screws. Then he went out to his handyman workshop and used his drill press to pre-drill holes (not all the way through) for my hooks to screw into. A regular drill with a small drill bit would work well, too.
Once the holes were drilled this project took all of about 10 minutes to finish by simply screwing one hook into each hole.
Now, my necklaces have a pretty little home on the bathroom wall. (Emahry was excited to get a couple of hooks for her necklaces, too.)
What things have you crossed off of your list recently?
