We’re working on getting the boys room finished up and have just a few projects left. When we added the
These hooks are similar to our
– 1-1/4-inch wood dowel
– mitre box
– sand paper
– drill + drill bit
– 1/4” x 2” dowel screw
– 5/16” drywall anchor
Using the mitre box set at a 30 degree angle, cut the end of the dowel off.
Slide the dowel down, keeping the same orientation until it will be the length you want when you cut it, cut it. (We made ours 2-1/4” from the point of the angled end to the short end of the other angle).
Using a 3/16” drill bit, drill a hole about 3/8” down from the top of the flat end that will go against the wall; drill it perpendicular to the back and about 1” deep.
Using pliers, screw the dowel screw in about half way.
The next steps are for installing the hooks where there is no stud (if there is a stud, drill hole into stud and screw hook directly into hole):
Pre-screw the drywall anchor onto the screw (because the dowel screw is slightly bigger than the screw that comes with the drywall anchor).
Drill a 5/16” hole in the wall where you want the hook to go; install the drywall anchor.
Screw the hook into the drywall anchor. Hoping to have the last few projects in their room finished soon and then can show the whole room! Check out the other room DIYs we’ve shared:
