I needed a spot to hang towels and robes in my children’s bathroom. I had a perfectly good blank wall, but I knew I wanted to do something prettier than just install hooks on the wall.
I already had some adorable shabby chic hooks from a recent Hobby Lobby sale.
And I found a piece of wood that was the perfect size for the space. It had a beautiful patina but my daughter requested I paint it.
I tried so hard to get her to change her mind but she just wouldn’t budge. I consulted my craft cabinet and found my green chalk paint.
I then slathered my reclaimed wood plank with two coats of green chalk paint.
Until I ended up with this:
I then screwed my hooks into the now painted plank. I tried to space them equally.
I then attached wall hangers to the back of it and hung it on the wall.
And here it is, holding up those robes just like I wanted it to.
What shabby chic project have you done lately?

What a great idea! My husband just brought home some reclaimed wood the other day. I’ll have to make one of these for our bathroom.
Hopefully you can keep the reclaimed wood look. I’m a little salty about having to paint mine 🙂
I love the color choice and the wear and tear on the hooks. 🙂
Thank you 😊
It matches the color of the wall and it is a great Idea to use it as hanging wall for all the jackets and maybe for keys.
We use it so much!!
