Wrench Wall Hooks
These wrench wall hooks are perfect for the garage. If you have some old wrenches (ask your hubby if you can use some of his old rusted ones) then you just bend them up and attach them to the wall. The wrenches are really heavy so you can hang heavier items on them. Use them to store garden tools, tool boxes or just about anything else you can think of in the garage or storage shed. They are also great to use in boys’ rooms for coats and other items.

Paint Brush Hooks
Who would have thought that there was a use for old paint brushes? You can use those brushes to make these whimsical wall hooks. Just leave enough paint on your brushes when you are finished with them to make them harden up just a bit. The hardened paint is what helps you to create the hook. These would be great in an office or artists’ studio. You can use them to hang your crafting aprons and other supplies.

You simply have to pull the top off an old iron rake to have a wonderful wall hook that is great for hanging coats or you could even use it to hang your wine glasses.
