Upcycling old fence palings to a Wall Hook Board

After I smashed down our old fence I have been looking for ideas on what to do with the old fence palings. Well I didn’t have to think to long before coming up with the idea of making a wall hook.

Steps to make:

  • Grab any wood that you can find
  • Put on your superwomen cape
  • Saw off the length you require
  • Using your all time favourite tool – your electric sander – sand all sides of the wood
  • Go ooh…aahhh… as you see the grain of the wood come through
  • Varnish if you like
  • Go to your local hardware store (in cape) and pick up some hooks and screws, if needed
  • Screw hooks to the wood
  • For the holes to screw to the wall, you might need to pre-drill the holes if its hardwood like mine below
  • Screw your new wall hook board into the wall
  • Hand up your trusted keys and pray this will stop the usual implosion every morning
