We sprayed our S hooks a lovely Rose Gold colour to match the rest of our room's décor. If you're also spraying your hooks, be sure to give them a light sand with some 180-grit sandpaper to give the paint a surface to adhere to. When you're done, wipe off any dust, and remember when spraying to shake your can well before you start.
We're using jute webbing for our hook straps, which we cut to the size we wanted. You'll want all your pieces to be uniform, so measure them all out before you cut, or fold/cut your first piece and use that to measure out the rest.
We decided we wanted our straps to be a little thinner, so we folded our webbing in half first before poking our holes through with the awl (an awl is a big spike that can be used to make a uniform-sized hole).
Repeat the above process for the S-hook hangers.
Once your hooks are dry (if you painted them, like we did), thread them onto the jute. You can place as many hooks as you like on your hanger – just make sure you have the right corresponding number of jute pieces.
Thread your hooks through the piece of dowel and place your straps on each end – you're ready to hang! We fixed ours to the wall using wall hooks, but if you're renting you may want to consider using adhesive hooks instead – they're easy to remove and don't leave a hole.
Voila! You've gone from messy to dressy in a few easy steps. And look – all that clutter is off your floor and looking stylish!
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
