Off the Hook

Or on the hook?

Coat hooks are so useful.  I love them in kids' rooms--they can always hang something up on a hook, in bathrooms as it is much easier to hang a towel on a hook as opposed to that fancy towel folding for a towel bar, for jewelry, by a hot tub, in an entry or mudroom, and...so many other places and uses.

Here a couple of coat hooks I recently made.

I added numbers to one of them.

 I wanted blocks of color, but nothing too precise so I used a tape measure while I was painting 
to figure out how big each block should be, but I didn't tape off the different spaces.

I sanded fairly heavily and added stain.

Paint those Hobby Lobby hooks for a more vintage look (don't forget to paint the screws).

And hang it up, or hook it up!
