Turn Drawer Knobs Into Wall Hooks

This is a great and easy tutorial for turning drawer knobs into wall hooks. Now imagine if you had some decorative drawer knobs, like ceramic, or glass or brass...you can make some really cool wall hooks that speak to your style!

Tools:

power drill
hammer
pliers

Materials:

drawer knobs
#10 2" hanger bolts
12-14-16 ribbed plastic anchors
primer and paint (optional)
masking tape (optional)

Step One:

Use pliers to screw hanger bolts into the holes of your drawer knobs, making sure you have the right size hanger bolts for a very tight fit. Just be sure you have drywall anchors that will fit the larger hanger bolts.
Note: Be sure to only grip the non-threaded part of your hanger bolt with the pliers or you will strip the screw. If you don't have a non-threaded part on your hanger bolts, then you can twist two nuts together onto the threaded part and grip the nuts to twist the hanger bolts into place.

Step Two:

If you aren't using pre-finished knobs, stain or prime and paint your knobs the color of your choice.

Step Three:

Arrange your knobs according to your liking on the wall. Then, drill a hole ever so slightly smaller than the diameter of your drywall anchors.

Step Four:

Use a hammer to tap the drywall anchors into the holes. If an anchor begins to crush rather than sink into place, your hole is too small. Drill it one step larger and try again.

Step Five:

Screw the knobs into the wall anchors. Anchors will allow you to hold super heavy purses and that sort of thing. However, these are NOT to be used as wall climbing hooks! Not only could you fall and get hurt, but your wall would be destroyed!

6 Genius Uses for Baby Oil
You'll be surprise what baby oil can be used for other than moisturizing the skin of newborns! 1. Fixing squeaky doors - This was my inspiration for writing this card. My bathroom door was squeaking the whole afternoon and I decided to do something about it. So I took out a bottle baby oil, pour a bit on a paper towel, then lubricate the door hinges and voila! The annoying noise is gone! 2. Prevent stretch marks from pregnancy - I have three children and for all three pregnancy I applied baby oil on my belly and thighs twice a day to prevent itchy skin and stretch marks. This method has worked for me, but if you're sensitive to baby oil you can use Bio Oil or vitamin E oil. 3. Post-shaving moisturizer - I actually learned this from the lady does my waxing. She said massaging oil over the waxed area will help soothe redness and moisturize the legs! 4. Detangling necklaces - I use to store all my necklace in a jewelry box but it gets tangle with one another. When that happens I add a little bit of baby oil to the worst knot and rub it around, it'll grease up the chains and untangle in no time. 5. Fixing stuck zippers - Once in a while my son would have a stuck zipper on one of his hoodies. To fix the zipper, I would rub baby oil on both sides of the zipper. Then work it back and forth and the zipper will slide in no time! 6. Shoe Polisher - This is how I keep my husband's leather shoes and my pumps shiny and clean - wiping baby oil on the surfaces to remove dust and grim. It's cheaper and better than store-bought shoe polisher. 7. Fool-proof nail polishing - I am not an expert when it comes to polishing nails, so I get paint on my skin. To make it easier to rub off I apply a little oil around the edges of the nail with a cotton swab. Then, when the nails are dry, the excess paint will rub right off.
