This broom holder easily fixes to the back of a door to keep cleaning supplies neat and out of sight.

The project

 

I wanted to hang some brooms and dustpans from the laundry door to keep everything tidy. I had leftover timber and stain from making my desk, and purchased holders and hooks.

 

How to build a broom holder

 

Step 1

 

Sand and stain the wood, and let it dry for a day.

 

Step 2

 

Mark out where to place the broom holder on the wood and pre-drill holes. I placed mine at 60mm from the edge. Then mark the position of your fixing screw in-between the broom holder as this will hide the fixing. Pre-drill for mounting.

 

Step 3

 

Measure out where to place the holder on the door. For me, it was 1500mm from the floor to the top of the holder.

 

Step 4

 

Add silicone or another adhesive to the back of the wooden holder. Mount the wooden holder through your pre-drilled holes and make sure it is level.

Step 5

 

Attach the broom holder through your pre-drilled holes and any other hooks.

It keeps everything tidy and if any of the attachments or hooks break over time, they can be easily replaced.
