Step 1

For each hook, paint two knobs the color of your choice. Avoid covering the flat portion of the knob where it will touch the metal brace.

Step 2

Glue the top knob to one leg of the brace on the outside edge near the end.

Step 3

Screw the brace to the wall. Where possible, screw into a wall stud. Otherwise, add wall anchors sized to accept the screws.

Step 4

Glue and hold the second knob against the bracket, covering the bottom screw. Allow the glue to cure completely before using the hook.

Step 5
