Over on Young House Love they are having a fun Pinterest challenge. The challenge is simple, make a project inspired by something you pinned on Pinterest. You can read more about the challenge here.
Because I have a plethora of “pin”spiration on my boards, I decided this challenge was a great form of motivation This is the pin that I chose to tackle.
Original project is from: theborrowedabode.com. You can go to her website for a tutorial on how she built her jewelry holder.
Here is how I mine together.
What you’ll need:
1. An old window frame, without glass. 2. Ceiling hooks. 3. Knobs 4. Crochet Thread 5. Drawer pulls that form a cup when attached upside down.
How to Assemble:
I decided to leave the window exactly how I got it. I could say I left it this way because I loved the rustic worn out look (which I kinda do). But really, the truth is I hate sanding a painting….. so I left it.
First, I layer out all the hooks and knobs onto the window and marked where I needed to screw them in.
Then, I attached the ceiling hooks. They were easy, they screwed in by hand.
Next, I drilled the holes for the drawer pulls, and attached them.
I did the same for the knobs.
A little side note here, I had to buy longer screws for the knobs because the ones that came with them were too short.
I would say the hardest part of the whole process was the string, I had to recruit my husbands help to figure this one out.
Using a level we marked a spot on each outside frame and the middle divider. Then, we attached the smallest drill bit we had and made a small hole at an angle on the outside frames and straight through the middle divider.
I ran crochet thread through a big needle and pulled it through the holes tying a knot on both sides.
I don’t really know if crochet thread is the best thing to use for this, but it’s what I had on hand.
The end project looks like this!
