Good morning friends!!
I shared on my Facebook page yesterday a sneak preview photo of one of the 500 projects I have going on right now at my house…I seriously have crafters/organizers ADD. Or maybe it’s just my “nesting: mode kicking in. Either way, stuff is getting done and I’m loving it!!
This project actually begun in my garage entry hall. We have a coat closet there but there is just so much stuff in it that I wanted to create a coat hook shelf by the door. I will share those photos after I purchase 5 more hooks (I created a 2nd row!) However, that is where I started the tutorial photos, so you’ll actually be seeing two different rooms
The room that I completed and am showing the tutorial for is in the tub/shower/toilet room in my kid’s bathroom.
Here’s my how-to tutorial! It was so easy that I completed this by my self at 24 weeks pregnant!!
This was my list of materials:
*1-1x4x12 pre primed
*1-1×2 white wood
*1-4×8 paintable birch beadboard paneling primed (only can find at Home Depot) (**I had the store cut piece in half to create 2-4×4 pieces and then trimmed to the size I needed for my wall, because I didn’t feel like using the circular saw!)
*air nail gun & compressor (hammer)
*2″ brad nails (18 gauge to fit our nail gun) (or 2″ finishing nails)
*Caulk & caulk gun
*Paint – durable, water resistant (preferably satin or gloss)
*(primer if necessary)
*Hooks with screws (mine were from Home Depot @ $3.28 each)
My 1×4 were left over from our the major board and batten project we created at the house we sold in South Carolina. We routed all of the wood ourselves. (50 billion trim pieces)
Honestly I would definitely NOT recommend doing this project without a nail gun. I ran out of brad nails for a little bit and had to use finishing nails & a hammer = NIGHTMARE! Seriously it stunk! The nails kept bending and you risk the chance of denting the wood with the hammer.
Step 9) Paint
Step 10) Measure and pre drill for hooks
Step 11) Screw hooks to wood
Step 12) Decorate & enjoy!
Like I said, this project was super easy! But I am telling you caulking and sanding is your best friend here. Your wood can be cut perfectly but it never fails, when you line it up with other wood there’s always some imperfections. If you don’t take the time to caulk and sand REALLY GOOD then you risk your project turing out junky looking. And if you’re like me and do this project without the knowledge of your husband you want it to turn out perfect so he has no reason to complain! haha (don’t be like me, tell your husband your plans!)
p.s. my wall color paint is Benjamin Moore Moonshine *swoon*! I love it!
I also used this color on the top half of my son’s bedroom, the laundry room and the garage entry hall (pics to come soon!)
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask! I will be more than happy to help! Props to the girls with power tools!
