How to Make This DIY Hook Rack


Materials Needed for DIY Hook Rack


Step 1: Paint

First, apply an even amount of primer to a small foam roller. Apply the primer using medium pressure across the surface of the wood rack.  Wait for the primer to cure before applying your colored paint.Once the primer has cured, use a different foam rolling brush and apply your colored paint. We chose a warm, neutral gray called Flannel Gray for our rack/hanger base. Grays are known for their ability to effortlessly coordinate with all colors and styles, making Flannel Gray a perfect choice for this eclectic antique rack/hanger.

 Step 2: Add Knobs

The unfinished wood rack already comes with four pre-drilled holes to add hooks or knobs for hanging  items, so there is no need to predrill before installation. Your decorative hardware should come with
installation screws.

Use a Phillips screw driver to install your hardware to the rack.

Step 3: Install

First, determine where you want to hang your completed hook rack in your home. If the wall does not have studs at the same length as your mounting holes, we recommend using anchors to hang it.

Next, mark the mounting holes location on the wall. Pre-drill the wall with 3/32 in. drill bit, and screw your hook rack to your wall using the screws provided.
