This month’s partnership with Lowe’s is a seriously easy project – one that you can make in about 15 minutes of hands on time. Ready to make it? You will need:
A piece of 12 inch by 16 inch wood (I used oak for durability) You can make it longer if you’d like.
Quick dry stain – Minwax Express Color seriously rocks
1/2 inch pipe straps (I used 3 – you can use more)
3 hooks for the keys
A pack of Command picture hanging strips
A drill with a small drill bit
Some small screws
First, stain your piece of wood and sit it aside to let it dry. The Express Stain is easy to use, just spread it on and wipe it off. I used Onyx, which gave the oak board a great color.
Next, measure board and place out your pipe straps where you’d like, then pre-drill the holes. Do the same for the hooks below the straps.
Next, use the screws to put the pieces onto the wood. Last, use the Command strips to hang, putting one on each end and using them per the instructions on the pack.
If you’re not using Command products, you should be! No, they’re not paying me to say it – and they are seriously my favorite new find in a long, long time. I’m verging on an obsession with them, I tell ya.
After you hang up your quick drop zone, then you just have to remember to put the keys and sunglasses in place… but that’s a whole ‘nother conversation!
