Just One More Thing

Jason took the lead on a nursery project of his own last weekend while I “supervised” from the glider.

Kate the Chicken’s room is the smallest in the house, measuring at about 10 feet x 12 feet. We are always looking for space-saving organization ideas. There is a small strip of wall behind the door that was just begging to be used, and I decided it would  make an excellent landing zone for her diaper bag, Baby Bjorn, and other hangable items.

I bought three of these hooks at World Market:Hook

The bubble/crackle glass bits are similar to the finials on her curtain rods, but the mixed metals keep them from being matchy.

Rod

We bought a piece of baseboard molding and cut it to size, then painted it to match the trim. Jason then installed the molding and screwed the hooks into it.

Voila.

Hooks 2

There is just enough clearance to accommodate the bag when it’s packed. And the door can open without hitting the hooks.

The total cost for this project was about $20, and it took about an hour of active time (paint drying not included).

Many thanks to my partner in craft, Jason, for making this look so easy.
