It happened by chance one day. A wine cork and a random screw were sitting on the counter (sounds like the beginning of a bad joke!), along with various other stray items. They called out to one another, and in the blink of an eye, I had a new landing spot for my bag.
This was mid holiday season, and lots of folks coming in and out admired its clever reuse and function. I sent them home with these easy instructions:
- Insert the screw into the hole made by the corkscrew. You can do most of it by hand, but a screwdriver will make the job easier.
- Make sure your screws are a bit longer than your cork. Every cork is slightly different. These screws were 2 1/2".
Attaching them to a chalkboard invites monogramming, which makes everything more fun!
What about for a bathroom? When guests come, wouldn't it be nice to to label whose towel is whose? I love this idea!
Since this one is actually at our front door, it's currently our new hat rack. Hats are necessity this time of year... and are known to disappear. Having such a specific home is super effective.
- I have a new chalkboard marker that writes like a dream. I got it at Michaels with one of their 40% off coupons that you can send directly to your phone.
-I use this eraser.
NOTES: That light switch below the board is non-functioning so hanging stuff above it isn't a problem. Obviously, don't install one above a functioning light switch... that would be a nuisance!
