I was provided product by DecoArt and compensated to write about this project, but all thoughts, opinions, and ideas are my own :)
We decided to clean out and organize the garage a few weeks ago, but did nothing to the step outside the garage door. It just remained a mess; a place where old shoes went to die and were forever forgotten. It has literally looked like this, even worse, for like six years.
Here's how I made it.
(2) 1x12, cut at 27"
(2) 1x12, cut at 14.5"
(1) 1x12, cut at 12.25"
(all you need is one 8' 1x12 for these cuts. Have the people at the wood center cut them for you)
(4) 1x2, cut at 18"
(4) 1x2, cut at 25.5"
(5) 1x6, 6" length
(1) 1x3, cut at 27.5"
(1) 1x6, cut at 27.5"
(2) 1x2, cut at
Hooks (mine are from Hobby Lobby)
2" finishing nails and/or screws
1 1/4" finishing nails
DecoArt Satin Enamels Paint in Pure White, 2 jars
DecoArt Satin Enamels Paint in Grey Taupe, 1 jar
Attach the two 14.5" sides to one of the 27" pieces using wood glue and 2" nails. Use screws for added support for heavy use.
DecoArt's Satin Enamels Pure White. This took two coats.
DecoArt's Stin Enamels Grey Taupe.
Next was adding the top piece of the hall tree. I just screwed these directly into the wall with 2" screws.
DecoArt's Pure White, I then painted the trim pieces Grey Taupe. I attached the 1x3 to the top of 1x6s with 2" nails. I then measured 8.5" down and attached the 1x6 cut at 27.5"
