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.


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.

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.
