These are a few of my favorite things....

I'm probably not the first person to do this, but just let me think I am. I wanted to hang some pictures up in my house but wanted to do something a little more creative then just the old nail in the wall, so here is what I came up with.



I bought some cabinet knobs from Home Depot, then I had to buy some special bolts, called hanger bolts that you screw into the knob, and then screw the knob into the wall. Ya see, this way you have so many to choose from, instead of just the 3 or 4 expensive ones at your local craft store.

I had an extra one that I used to hang this flag that I made with my Activity Day's girls. I think it would be way cute to use some of those crystal looking ones to hang stuff up in a little girls room. I've shown this before, but I used them here again to hang up these drapes.






Here's a close up view

Ya like how you can see my pencil marks. I say why erase what you can't see, unless your getting a close up picture to post on you blog, for everyone or at least like five people to see.
Do you like my new song? I can't find the version David A. sang on American Idol with One Republic so this will have to do. I think I'm going through American Idol withdraws, I think I might of had a little crush on David Archuleta.

Very cute! That's a great use for knobs. And I like the collection of pictures. I have a spot where I'd like to do something similar.

So cute Nicole, I love it! I'm trying to get brave enough to actually put some knobs on my kitchen cabinets. I'm just so afraid I'll ruin them . . .

Hey i want one of those buttons that says i belong! Will you put one on for me, or tell me how?

Tausha said...

ok-that is the most fabulous idea! I never thought to go and get them from home depot. I think that I will be making a trip there tomorrow.
I am in activity days-I teach the 8 yr. olds-that flag is darling. How did you do it. Will you please give me the directions-i know that my girls would love to do tha. They would feel so grown up! To answer your question-YES i LOVE my CriCut! Super fun to use. I have the small one-i bought it off an ifomercial-i blogged about it if you want to read about it. Anyway-I love it. People say that the bigger one is better-but I like my little one for now. Maybe is the future I will need the big-or at leaast THINK i will need it. I do know that I need to get more cartridges. Wish that I had a lot of money. You must share more of your great ideas-I love them! About how much is each knob with the screws? Girls gotta keep it cheap! Let me know.

I have some pictures that I made for my dd's room and I used hooks to hang them. Got the idea from a Pottery Barn Kids Catalog.

I like that idea with the knobs. Never thought of doing that.. Hanger bolts, huh? I'll try to remember that next time I'm hanging something up... Thanks for sharing!
