How To Make A Vintage Farmhouse Hook Using Pallet Wood
Where is the best place to find old pallets?
Over the years of making lots of projects from pallet wood, the best place I’ve found them is from the council clean-up days when people pop out their junk on the curbside. I have also found them at junkyards.
- Old Pallet Wood or even old wooden fencing would do the trick
- 120 grit sandpaper
- Old Door Handles – you can find then at junkyards
- Wood Screws
- Saw Tooth Hanger
- Drop Saw
Step 1 – Measure how long you would like your hooks to be and cut the pallet wood accordingly with your drop saw. Just make sure there’s enough gorgeous pallet wood showing above and below your door handle.
Step 2 – Mark with a pencil where you would like your door handle to be on your pallet wood. Then using a smaller drill bit than the screws you’re going to use, pre-drill some holes. Line up the door handle and screw the door handle into place.
Step 3 – Flip your hook over. Line up your sawtooth hanger and hammer into place.
Now your Vintage Farmhouse Hook is all ready to hang! Make a few for a mudroom or they would be great in a bathroom or a laundry for hanging towels. The possibilities are endless.
