Materials Needed:

  • wood porch post
  • porch post cap
  • 4 wood corbels
  • 4 coat hooks (and their coordinating screws)
  • pencil
  • construction adhesive
  • paintbrush
  • screwdriver
  • water-based primer
  • water-based latex paint

Cut Porch Post

Cut down a porch post from the home improvement store so it measures four feet tall. Tip: If you don't have a saw at home, have the post cut to size at the store.

Add Adhesive

Squeeze some construction adhesive onto the back side of all four wood corbels.

Attach Corbels

Stand the porch post up (a helper is handy for this step), and attach a construction adhesive-coated corbel in the center of each side of the base.
