Repurposed Junk Dog Leash Holder
I’m in USE IT UP mode around here. I’ve taken my studio and office that was spread out over 90% of the basement and crammed it all into about 25% of the basement so I could move Warren’s office downstairs. All because I wanted to have a guest room again.
That means I have STACKS of junk and craft supplies that need to either be used up or donated. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve donated a TON of stuff.
But some of it I just know I can find a use for.
Like random pieces of furniture trim and old, tarnished spoons.
But what to do with them?
When it snows or rains and we let the dogs out they come in soaking wet. They may not shed but their fur sure likes to hang on to snow and rain. Deep snow means major snowballs stuck to their fur that have to MELT off. There is no easy way to get them off.
So we keep a towel by the back door along with their leashes.
I had a rather delicate hook hanging there for the leashes and towel but it fell and broke recently.
Enter my supply of junk.

How I put it all together.
- This whole thing went together pretty quickly.
- Bend the spoon handles around a broom handle
- Drill a hole where the spoon will rest against the wood. I used my handy dandy drill press.
- Attach spoons to the wood with screws.
- Wonder out loud what to do with the big empty space at the top and then do some more digging in bins.
- Drill holes in old jell-o mold and attach with upholstery nails.
- Put two saw tooth hangers on the back of the wood.
- Hang on wall adding leashes and towel.
The best part about this whole thing is that the kitchen floor sees a lot less abuse from wet paws. And that means less mopping for me. YAY!
