Hooked on Hooks

A to Z Badge 2012 (1)

I like hooks.  Actually, if you haven’t noticed already, I like a lot of things! 

This was originally a dark red 4th of July sign I found at Good*will  (I always forget to take the before picture.)  It was nice enough, but I bought it with the sole intention of repurposing it.  I left it the same color, and it was already dinged and scratched up the way I like it.  I added the hooks I bought at Hobby*Lobby.  I Mod- Podged a page torn from an old accounting ledger.  Perfect office decor.


I had been looking for just this size to put in our entry/office to hang our coats and jackets.  I hung it about 3 1/2 feet from the floor so Grace could reach.  I hang a canvas bag on one hook to corral all of our scarves, gloves and mittens.  In the summer it’ll be perfect for jackets and umbrellas.


You can see this old ledger dates back to 1953.  I love it!  The handwriting was in super tiny illegible cursive.


Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!  I’m also participating on our family blog here.

God bless.



  1. The hooks are great! You are so creative!

    I have a hard time seeing the potential in junk. If I see something in a magazine I might be able to duplicate it, but it would be better to have a friend like you around. :)

    I've caught up on your A-Z posts. If you do the flowers in the tires, be sure to share a picture with us!

    Hope you had a blessed Easter.

  2. i love this -i too love handles and hooks!

  3. So creative. Yes, handwriting years ago was truly an art. Not so these days and "penmanship" is not even taught anymore. You are going to have to get a bigger house, to display all your creativeness!!!

  4. I just had to stop in again and tell you how creative I think you are. So resourceful. It's something I really admire. I love the coat hook idea.
