Gardening Garb Clip Board

Gardening Garb Clip Board

I will be the first to admit that this project is pretty darn simple. But it evolved from a very real need- actually, a *few* very real needs. First, I was in my crafting room and emerged determined to use up some of my supplies…and second, I have a TERRIBLE habit of ripping off my gardening gloves in the garage, tossing them about, and then having a devil of a time finding them again.

So here we are- with a simple, but hopefully very useful project using salvaged wood, vintage clothespins, and some picture hanging wire.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you may remember my fruitful trip to Nashville, Tennessee. While I was there, I scored a huge old jar of weathered clothespins.  And I have really yet to use them in any projects thus far!

So I decided to focus on using them somehow…and as I was once again searching for a missing gardening glove in the garage, I thought to myself, “I really need a place to hang these…”. And BOOM- a project was born. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.

I didn’t have any good wood planks laying around, so I headed to my local Habitat ReStore and scored the perfect piece of salvaged wood for $0.75.

It’s the wood that makes it good.

Since the price was written on the board, I decided to give it a quick wash of paint- just enough to give it some color…but by no means a thorough job. I like the fact that I can paint something quickly and get that “distressed” farmhouse look just by being lazy!

Green is for gardening.

Then, I gathered a handful of clothespins, marked where I wanted them on the newly-painted board, and used wood glue to attach them.

Wood glue is s-t-r-o-n-g stuff!

To help the wood glue do its job, I applied clamps as I went along. Cottonball, of course, was fascinated by the process.

Always curious…this time about clamps.

I let everything dry/cure/set overnight. Next, I screwed in a couple of D-ring hangers into the ends of the board.

And then threaded some braided picture-hanging wire between them! Ta-da…ridiculously simple, right?

And there it is!

…in all its simple glory!

So, now we have a good place to hang our dirty gloves…and hats…and kerchiefs…anything dirty, sweaty, and a little gross. How handy is that? And cheap/easy to make!

No more losing the gloves in the garage!

Simple can be fantastic, can’t it?

You know how I love me some upcycled organization and/or storage! And you know what? I think it looks pretty cute, too. Bonus!

Craft on!

    What a great idea! I’m gonna make one for my laundry room. All those mismatched socks need a pretty home while waiting to find their mates. I might also make one (or two!) for my sewing room. I so often have ideas on slips of paper that get lost in the shuffle. Having them hanging would serve as a pretty reminder. Thanks for sharing.
