I can only assume most of you are Anthropologie fans, because really, who isn’t? I’ve always loved quirky animal details in the home so when I spotted these forest friends in the form of hooks at Anthro, I had to have them. My husband and I had been planning on re-vamping our entryway, so he surprised me with these for Christmas.
What You’ll Need
Hooks | Wood | Brass Screws | Screwdriver | Measuring tape | Level | Tablesaw (if using own wood)
What You’ll Do
Step 1. We have a lot of re-claimed wood in our basement so it was easy for us to choose a piece that fit what we were looking for. My husband beveled the edges using his table saw. Alternatively, you could go to Home Depot or a reuse center like Buffalo ReUse to find an appropriate piece of wood.
Step 2. Plan out how far apart you want the hooks by using a measuring tape so they are evenly spaced. Then, mark the spots where the screws go in so you can mount the hooks.
Step 3. When mounting the rack to the wall you’ll need to find the studs in the wall, so it’s sturdy. A stud finder tool will do this, or for an easy trick, check out the baseboard. A nail or plug on the baseboard usually indicates a stud in the wall, and studs are normally placed 16″ apart.
Step 4. Mount the hooks. These hooks come in two types, one slides on to the screws and one is screwed in, which are shown below.

Despite this ridiculously cold weather, I’ve been trying to make sure the weather doesn’t necessarily decide my everyday wardrobe. While this vegan leather jacket isn’t exactly warm enough for this type of cold, its structure is perfect for layering (even under a larger coat). It’s literally become my all time favorite !

These past couple of weeks have been busier than I could have ever imagined, hence the lack of posts. We do have some great content coming up, which I’m really excited to share within the next couple of days/weeks. In the mean time I had to share my love for this Peter Pilotto for Target dress (now on sale). It’s been a go-to for me since I can dress down like above for a casual look or throw on some heels and a clutch for a night out.
