– 1×4″ board in your choice of length. Mine is about 24 inches long.
– 1/2″ screws
– Pipe Clamps (I think they were size 36)
– Paint or wood stain (optional)
– Sawtooth picture hangers or 3″ screws
– Mason Jars (or knock offs)
1. Paint or stain your wood if you’d like.
2. Use the 1/2″ screws to attach the pipe clamps to the board.
3. Attach your picture hangers to the board or locate the studs in the wall and use the 3″ screws to attach the board to the wall.
4. Tighten your jars into the pipe clamps.
It’s pretty easy and fairly basic. As you can see, I modified the original design a bit… I took one pipe clamp and jar off the board completely. Then I lined the pipe clamp that holds my hair dryer with felt to keep it from scratching up the plastic on my hair dryer. Just hot glue a strip of felt inside the pipe clamp all the way around. The cord tucks through and is out of reach of my incessantly grabby toddler. The jars hold my “hot sticks” (as my preschooler calls them), the curling iron and the flat iron. I love that I can drop them in the jars and I don’t have to worry about them warping the counter or melting combs or anything like that. They are up and out of reach and can safely cool off in the glass jars. This DIY project turned re-purpose has been a success for the last seven months and I don’t intend to change it any time soon.
