We all have them pile up in a cupboard or taking over valuable counter space, Growlers. I love these growlers because they allow me to support local businesses when we have a party and save on beer costs! These growlers were taking over our kitchen storage, so I (we, I can’t take all the credit on this one) decided to build a feature growler wall.
Here is how we did it.
A piece of wood -honestly we simply found a long inexpensive piece of wood that had a nice grain. Budget was key here!
6 hooks – we found ours at the hardware store but I am sure you could also order some online)
6 small screws – for the hooks
16 2 inch screws for the boards
First you want to measure the space and figure out how long you want each piece to be. Instead of buying one large piece of wood we bought a longer piece of wood and cut 4 pieces to the same length. Most hardware stores will cut the wood on site if you know your measurements.
Next is staining. There are so many great options for stain and I find it much simpler than paint.
After waiting the appropriate time (read the can) apply a second coat of stain.
After the wood is completely dry, mine took a couple days, attach to the wall! Add the hooks. Be sure to measure the distance between each hook so it is symmetrical. We decided to stagger the hooks so the bottles were not resting on one another.
Then add the growlers and you are all set!
This project doesn’t take very long if you count total time, but there is a bit of a wait with the stain drying period. The key with any DIY is make sure you have all your measurements and materials to start, it will make it so much easier!
