diy painted driftwood hanger

Mr. Lovely and I recently wandered around down by the Hudson and gathered up some gorgeous driftwood, and ever since, we’ve been using it bit by bit on different projects.  I’ve been super-inspired by some of the colorblocked driftwood I’ve seen online lately, so I decided to make my own version!

Gather your materials:

  • piece of driftwood or a branch
  • masking tape
  • paints & paintbrushes
  • picture hangers
  • screw-in hooks
  • hammer
  • pliers

Start with clean, dry wood, and use tape to mask off stripes.  Make sure to flatten the edges of the tape thoroughly so that no paint seeps underneath.  Paint your first stripes and let them dry (I found that my wood dried well standing up in an empty glass).

Let the paint thoroughly dry and carefully remove the tape.  Repeat the taping and painting process with varying colors and widths of stripes until you’re happy with the result.

After all the stripes are dry, find the side of your wood that is the most flat, in order to lie against a wall.  On this side, hammer in one or two picture hangers, depending on the length of wood and the weight of the objects that you’d like to hang on it.

Last step!  Decide where you’d like your hooks and screw them into the wood, using pliers if necessary.

Now put it on your wall and hang your favorite stuff on it!  Use it for jewelry, use it for keys, use it for your measuring spoons.  I’m pretty sure you can’t go wrong.  xoxo
