His & Hers Hooks

Thursday, May 6, 2010 |
So, onto the second bridal shower gift...  If you missed the first, it's here.  I started out with these two wooden plaques that I got at the Michael's Craft Store.  They were $2.69 each.


I primed them and painted them white.  I figured I would make the project a black and white theme, since that is what she is going with for her wedding colours.



I remembered a stamp I bought that I love, and hadn't used for anything yet, and this was the perfect project to use it for.  I painted the stamp with black paint and blotted on paper towel to make it a lighter more distressed shade.  Although, this picture I have posted below was before I decided it needed to be lighter (I had to make a quick fix!).



I bought these knobs and two back plates at Home Depot for $1.48 (knob), $.98 (back plate).



Of course I wanted these to match too, so I painted them black as well.



I had a friend make some vinyl up to say "HIS" "HERS", and the little stinker wouldn't let me pay for it!  But supposedly it would only cost a couple bucks (so keep that in mind- still cheap)



Lastly, I drilled a hole in the back to screw in the knob and back plate.



Okay...   ahh, are you ready for it!

Voila!









And there you have it!

I forgot to mention that I am putting a thing on the back (I can't think of the name of it - but I know what it is in my mind), so that you can hang these on the wall, and with the little knobs you can hang anything off them... towels, bathrobe, jewelry, ties, whatever!!

I am pleasantly pleased with myself.  Cute!!!  Well, enough of me, I hope you get inspired!!

Cost:
Wooden Plaques: $2.69 each
Back Plate: $.98 each
Knob: $1.48 each
Stamp: Had on hand
Leveling Hanger (the hook on the back): $1.49 (set of 6)
Vinyl: from a friend
Total: $11.79

Very cute! I would never have though of using a stamp to create a pattern. Everyone's been into the scrapbook paper lately, so I thought that' what you would use. Great idea!
