Knobs as Hooks

Girls come with a lot of accessories. We have purses, shoes, scarves, jewelry and a plethora of other crap things. This is often why we require so much closet space to store it all. Most of my rarely used handbags and shoes are packed away, but my often used purses, scarves and shoes need to be close at hand, and thus can be kind of a mess.

To get them out of the way, yet keep them accessible I decided to hang some knobs inside our new master closet to hang my favorite accessories.

The problem with knobs is that they are meant to be screwed into a cabinet. This means that they have what you call machine screws (screws without a pointy bit) to attach them to the cabinet. They screw through the back of the cabinet into the knob. This makes them impossible to attach to a wall without some DIY’ing.

Here’s what you need to do. Take your knob screws out to the garage and cut off the heads of the screws using a  saw with a metal blade. This now makes them headless screws (which means they can be screwed into things on both ends. )

Then simply thread your now double sided screws into your knobs and your wall anchors. Ta Da! Knobs on a wall.

Now hang your accessories, and get your nagging husband off your back.

Wheres my white Coach Purse? Hung up of course!

Knobs Holding Accessories

You can easily do this with all sorts of knobs, for holding towels in the bathroom, coats at the front door, or even the dog’s leash handy but out of the way.
