  • Cut Wood

    Cut boards for back and top of purse rack to listed dimensions (or modify if you want it to be longer).

  • Drill Pocket Holes

    Drill 3 pocket holes along one side of your 1x3 board.

  • Sand

    Sand everything smooth.

  • Attach Top and Side

    Attach your 1x3 board to your 1x6 board using 1 1/4" pocket hole screws.

  • Drill Holes for Hooks

    Measure, mark, and drill holes for your purse hooks. I found it helpful to use a speed square to make sure my holes would be straight and level.

  • Stain

    Stain or paint your purse rack. I used an Early American color stain.

  • Attach Hooks

    Attach hooks. I used the screws that came with the hooks I ordered, and ended up having to use a Dremel to trim the backs since they were too long, so I recomend purchasing shorter screws separately.

  • Hang

    Use picture hanging hardware to attach your rack to the wall.
