Wall hooks can be as simple as nails in a board.  They get the job done and with a little thought look great too.  Wall hooks can be complicated too!  With little rooftops and twisty hooks.  Then there are the ones you buy.

These cabin hooks are my favorite.  Those little cabins put a smile on my face every time I walk upstairs.

  1. Hi Jeanette, I love hooks! I either buy old screw-in hooks or new at the hardware store, then rough them up to look used. I look for pieces of old molding and make coat hooks to sell in my antique mall booth. If the molding is really chippy, I seal with flat varnish, several coats sometimes to keep paint from anymore chipping. Drill holes on each end to screwing to the wall.
    I also have made mirrors out of old windows and screwed hooks on one side or along the bottom of the window. I spray Looking Glass mirror paint on the back side of the window.

  2. Jeanette, what great ideas for hooks! The cabin hooks are still my favorite too, but the shelf with hooks are great since they serve more than one purpose, perfect for small spaces! Those HOME hooks are something I’ve never seen before. I have a crate full of wooden letters I’ve collected over the years, so I think I’m going to give letter hooks a try.
    Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
