A Repurposed Picket
Tee-hee…check out what Sam and I pulled over for today!I know it doesn’t look like much, but when I turned it over, I fell in love with the patina.
Yep, that is pure age there! No sand paper required.
I could tell that despite the patina, the board was very sturdy and strong. So, I decided to try and figure out some clever little project to do today. Hmmmm, a search on Pinterest for a quick and easy DIY project brought me up short. My solution was to start hunting in my drawer of hardware….and I am loving what I came up with. Check it out!
First step was to remove the old nails. A little bending and pounding on the point side of the nails set them loose, falling free onto the ground. Easy. Now for some cool hinges. I attached them to the back of the board, and then flipped the whole thing over to attach some hooks.
Now for a little pizazz….or just some pragmatic labeling.
With some screws, a level, and a screwdriver, and…..viola! I fixed up this cool discarded picket AND I solved the backpacks landing on the floor every weekday at 3pm. Yesssss!
Look at those glorious backpacks….with a purpose and a place! I guess that is one more thing that gets me closer to checking off one of my New Year’s resolutions: gettin’ organized! Pretty cute, right?
Have an awesome Friday night!
