DIY Wooden Wall Hooks

This week, I’m bringing you a super quick and easy DIY tutorial — perfect for beginners! Taking old furniture legs and re-purposing them, you can create these on-trend, wooden wall hooks.

These round furniture legs were leftover from a recent bedside table flip I did. On the bedside table they looked chunky and dated — most of all, they just didn’t fit the modern look I was going for.

Instead of throwing the legs away, I stashed them for a rainy day, crafternoon. By simply adding a splash of paint, I was able to make these colour-block wall hooks, which are functional and stylish.

Perfect for the hallway to hang your bag or coat as your walk in the door, or even in the bedroom to store your jewellery — these wall hooks are so versatile.

Loving the look and loving the fact that they were so cheap to make! Due to the beauty of upcycling, these wall hooks only cost the price of a couple of test pots.

I chose the colours Parchment and Rivergum by Resene to create a muted, minimalist scheme in the space but you could easily jazz these wall hooks up by using bright colours for an extra pop!
