DIY Vintage Hook Rack

A place to hang your things; oh how much it means. A hook makes a room almost instantly a home. It reaches out to help and, if it is installed properly, it will never fail you. There is something about a hook that makes you just relax, you don’t worry; you have what you need hanging right there. Whether it’s your purse, your keys, your bathrobe, or that light sweater you need on these cooling summer nights, the hook is there to hold it; ready and waiting for you. The hook looks good doing it too. It loves to be useful, to be fashionable and to always be there when you need it. Really, it’s the poor girl’s butler but perhaps I just love hooks too much.

I have been recently updating our little guest room and it is in desperate need of a place for guests to hang a few things. So I started looking around to purchase a hook rack. I love the vintage look of course and simply die for this stunning reclaimed wooden plank with vintage hooks I purchased for way too much money. Now that I live and breathe on a budget, as I was looking I thought, “Heck! I could make one of these! It would be so easy!!” So today, we will do it together readers.


I purchased some cute vintage looking hooks for a steal at $7 for 3 and a plank of wood for $4. With a little paint and sandpaper and less than an hour of my stunning summer Sunday, I had a homemade hook rack!
