hooked, a tutorial

 Our old bed frame was hand made by me.  It wasn't pretty, but it worked.  We used cedar 4x4s for the legs.  We bought a king sized be from a friend, and I kept the 4x4s.  I had put up a couple hooks for Jason and I, and we needed more and I was trying to figure out a way to not put 10 holes in the wall.  I had a brilliant flash of amazingness.  Put hooks into a 4x4 and attach *it* to the wall.  4 holes rather than 10.  and it's a little shelf!

go me.

I'm planning on going to the St. Lawrence antique market to get another motley set of hooks for the other 3 4x4s.

Drill pilot holes first so you don't split the wood, and use anchor sets so you don't pull the set up off the wall when you put you worn but not dirty clothes on it.
