What might otherwise be unused space in the entry hall is outfitted with a fully stocked bar cart. The vintage-inspired cart and barware are as much a part of the decor as they are goods for use while entertaining.
Measure board, evenly spacing desired number of hooks or knobs to hold three to six stockings. Mark each spot with pencil. Drill pilot holes in pencil marks and insert knobs. Hang on nails secured in studs or screws and anchors. Always use caution and wear safety glasses when working with power tools. Tip: Use knobs with a flat screw backing so shelf will hang flat against wall.
