DIY Belt hanger from pallet wood

This isn't one of those super pretty, perfectly finished off projects but it is functional and has helped me to be more organised.

My belts were hung on some over-door hooks on the back of our closet door but the hooks had become a hot mess. Besides the fact that I have more belts than hooks, there were also Grant's ties and a hat hung there and it's where I hang items that need to be ironed (until there are enough to make getting out the ironing board worth it). It was a pain trying to find or get a particular belt so I knew I needed a better solution.

I took a strip of pallet wood ...

Then I picked up some 1-inch nails from the dollar store and started banging them in, while using the belt buckles to work out roughly where I wanted them. Big buckles got two nails each while small ones were fine with just one.

Here are the nails - as you can see it's not a perfectly precise line but they work fine

I decided to hang it onto the blank wall behind the door of our closet.

You can see a tiny bit of the wall to the right ...

... and here it is with the belt hanger up.

It works great!
