Materials Needed:

  • cloth
  • wood cleaner, such as Murphy Oil Soap
  • 1/2-inch paintbrush
  • latex paint
  • pencil
  • small shoulder and/or cup hooks
  • drill
  • two finish washers
  • screws

Step 1

Wipe down the wood with the cloth and cleaner.

Step 2

Paint the drawer, making sure to coat the inside and corners of each small compartment. Let dry. Peacock Blue by Glidden was used here.

Step 3

Use a pencil to mark where you want the hooks to go—we hung ours about 3/4 inch from the top of each compartment and along the bottom of the drawer. If the wood starts cracking when you’re screwing in the hooks, drill small pilot holes before inserting the rest of the hooks. If the hooks go through the wood and their pointy ends stick out the back, glue two strips of scrap wood to the back of the drawer—one at the bottom and one at the top—to protect your wall from scratches after you hang the drawer.

Step 4

To hang, drill two holes, one in each top corner of the drawer. Place a finish washer over the front of each hole, and screw into the wall.
