– Scrap wood – Drawer Handles – Jigsaw – Mouse Sander – Drill – Sawtooth picture hanger – Wood stain
I measured the space above the alarm and the light switch in my entryway and decided that a 15 length of wood was about right so I used my jigsaw to cut a piece off of one of my pallets.
So once I’d picked my handles I tried spacing them out to get an idea of how they would look and then I measured for the holes.
It’s your call if you want to put the hanging on now or after the next step. I did it first. I used a sawtooth picture hanging attachment, my favorite for hanging most things.
The brand is Scandiwood and it’s a natural finish wood oil meant for kitchen worktops. It darkened the wood ever so slightly, made it look warmer, and brought out the grain nicely.
