This is where the hate aspect comes in. It's just getting ridiculous. The wall hanger will all the scarves use to look like this:
You can see how I made this hanger here. It's obviously something that I use unlike a lot of the jewelry hanging type stuff I have made. This is the one that has gotten the most use and some how it hasn't fallen off the wall yet :) But as you can see, I needed more of it. A lot more lol. And as for the lamp and plate (exhibit b, yes there's a plate under there) well, I'm not sure how that happened. Ease of use? My catch all for my rings become a catchall for everything. Either way, I needed a solution...
I wanted to make this really simple. I could have gone a little overboard with molding and routing and what not, but decided to keep sleek simple lines.
1. Find out where you want to put the knobs and mark with a pencil.
2. Drill through the mark in step one with a bit that is slightly smaller than the thread on the knob. Then on the back, either use a countersink drill bit to add an indentation or use a larger drill bit and drill about a quarter of the way through. This will make the knob flush with the wood when you add the bolt.
3. Screw the knob through the hole. Mark on a spot on the thread of the knob where it becomes flush with the wood.
4. Use your Dremel to cut at the mark you just created. Use the right attachment for this! I used a reinforced disk that is made to cut metal. You can skip taking the knob out of the wood if you wish. On the piece I did earlier, I took it out. But on my new shelves, I just kept it in how it appears on step 3 and used my Dremel from there. You can see in Step 6 how it marked up my wood, but that didn't matter to me. Its just up to you how you want to do it.
5. Screw the bolt on with some needlenose pliers
6. Attached a claw clip to hang; if its a longer shelve, use two claws. Or you can just choose to screw the shelf directly into the wall.
So, here's that corner before...totally unused space::
