DIY Over the Door Hooks for Extra Storage in a Closet
Have you ever wanted to use over the door hooks but couldn't because the space between the top of the door and the door frame is too narrow, say from a million coats of paint? This happened to me in my new apartment and I came up with a really easy, inexpensive DIY version of over the door hooks a la MacGyver:
I used 5" x 7" aluminum flashing sheets you can get at the hardware store and simply bent them into a shape to fit over the door!
Then you just have to attach the hooks to a piece of wood and then attach whatever you want to that and hang it on your door (in my case, a DIY tool organizer).
I screwed the hooks into the top of the door, and the metal is thin enough that the door can close - problem solved!
You can see how I did made the over-the-door organizer and the entire tool closet transformation in this video
