Quick Fix: Saving the Non-Sticky Self-Stick Hooks

Quick Fix: Saving the Non-Sticky Self-Stick Hooks

So, self stick hooks are supposed to be a time saver— and from what we've read in the Apartment Therapy comments, they are a more-than-decent way to go for low priced, easy to install storage. But, what happens if and when the self stick section loses its stick-a-bility?

That is exactly what happened to Kim and Scott of Yellow Brick Home with their $1 bargain Home Depot self-stick hooks, but they made a quick and permanent fix that just might be worth doing from the get go. They ended up taking the time to drill some simple (just eyeballed) pilot holes and then affixed them to the door with screws.

Cost: $0
Time: Super quick
Savings: The cheap and quick storage solution is now a cheap, quick and successful storage solution - and nothing got tossed in the trash just because it didn't work out on the first try.

We thought this was a perfect small but inspiring story for Fresh Start month - it's always worth it to get things working well - if at first your project doesn't (totally) succeed, dedicate just a few more minutes to it. Success is within reach!
