Last week, I sacraficed a work space of my own, for Ryan to have his own, full out, man room. So, I gave him his guitars on the wall, just like he always wanted... love you xoxo
DIY Wall Mount Guitar Holder
First Step: Go to Home Depot and gather your supplies.
- Heavy duty screws & anchors
- Heavy duty utility wall hooks -found in the garage organzier section.
- Some sort of wood! Ryan bought these bull nose caps, used to cap edges of stair treads. They were quality wood, cheap, and the perfect size. Just over $2 bucks a piece.
- Paint - what ever you have laying around. I used some black spray paint - it was for plastic. No one needs to know
|These things are just $2 bucks at Home Depot|
I chopped the wood pieces in half using my chop saw. They weren't all a perfect length, and some had round edges, some have straight edges. It really doesn't matter since the guitar will be hiding the wood piece. I am soooo not a perfectionist!!!
Then I drilled holes for the screws. I measure about an inch and a half from the end.
Then I drilled massive holes to fit the utility hook. Wish I had a drill press for this, but my hand held drill did it's job eventually. You can see where the wood split a bit on the edge of the holes. I just sanded it out nice and gave the pieces another coat of paint.
I love using painters tape to measure out hanging stuff on the wall. I spaced the hooks about 18" apart.
They look awesome from the hallway!
Each wall mount cost less than $4 bucks to make. The retail at the store any where from $20-45. I'm so thrifty.
