DIY Mudroom Hooks

This is just a quick post to share an easy DIY and the source for these hooks. Side note: I'm going to start calling our back entryway our mudroom because I don't want to keep calling them both entryways when they're actually two different places.
A couple of months ago, Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co posted about her living room and I loved the hooks she used.  While I loved the ones she used, cheapo me went down a crazy black hole that is the internet and found these hooks and figured I could DIY the rest myself.

Luckily I'm a hoarder and I've been picking up old reclaimed wood through my town's spring cleanup and this place that recycles pallets. Cincinnati peeps, I get tons of wood at Lumber Jack Pallets and there is always stuff out there. They put out whatever pallets that are defective (in terms of recycling and resale, but totally okay for DIY stuff) and label free firewood for the pieces... which makes me assume that they aren't treated with a bunch of chemicals like some pallets. Sometimes there will be some rogue nails or staples in them, but I've snagged tons of pieces that don't have nails in them.

Ben thought it'd be easier to screw the boards into the wall then the hooks. Our hooks screws were slightly longer than our board and we didn't want to poke into our kitchen table. This logically made sense, but the screws that are sent with these hooks are super crappy and we had a lot of issues with them immediately stripping. I would 100% recommend getting your own screws for these hooks which I plan to do for the remaining 4 hooks. Having lower hooks for Cora to hang her book bag and coats herself has already helped out a lot and we're loving the switch up from the previous hooks.

We'll eventually get this area painted and probably replace the back door, but I'm loving the little functional upgrade for the space. Having lower hooks for Cora to hang her book bag and coats herself has already helped out a lot with the coat and bag clutter.
