Today I'm back with more details on how we made our mini mudroom coat
hooks knobs. I had originally wanted to splurge and go for The Dots coat hooks by Muuto, but we didn't have the height from our bench to the shelf to be able to mount them on the wall and still hang our coats. Once I realized this I headed to the hardware store (Home Depot in this case) to find another solution.
I stumbled upon these unfinished cabinet knobs that were a nice large size and ultra affordable at 2 for $2.49! I started to think that these knobs (with a little colour) would give me the look of Muuto Dots. Maybe these would be my own Muuto Dots knockoff (in a very loose sense)?
I just needed to figure out a way to make these knobs into coat hooks. That's where I turned to Tech Guy and asked him whether they made double-ended screws. Of course they did and they had a bunch of different sizes there in the hardware department. We found the ones that would fit into the predrilled knob hole.
Tech Guy really liked the woodgrain look. So we decided to stain rather than paint the knobs. There weren't very many choices at the Depot, but we both liked this colour which is island water by Minwax. I finished them off with a couple coats of semigloss polyurethane.
Tech Guy then mounted the new coat knobs onto the wood holding up the shelf by pre-drilling holes and twisting them in. Easy peasy. :)
Stay tuned for a post on the baskets I DIYed for this mini mudroom. You can also read about how we made our floating bench here.
