DIY Guitar Wall Rack Supplies List

Here are all the supplies you’ll need for this project:

Those are basically the only supplies you’ll need to build this guitar wall rack. Let’s get started!

DIY Guitar Wall Rack Tutorial

Step 1: Prepare the Board

I sanded all the edges of the board really nice and slightly rounded them. I didn’t want it to have any sharp edges. I also sanded the front of the board nice and smooth. Taking the time in the first step to sand the board, pays off in how the paint looks on it in the end. So, I really encourage you to take the time to sand the board.

Step 2: Paint the Board

After you have the board sanded, you are ready to paint the board. You can paint the board any color you want, but if you go with black like I did, I highly recommend you paint the board with my two-brush technique. It’s a little trick I use when painting furniture, and other projects where I want a flawless finish. Remember the supplies list, where I mentioned you need two paint brushes? Here’s where you utilize those brushes. First, brush on the black paint pretty thick with the normal paint brush, and then immediately brush over it with the foam brush. You are basically using the foam brush to smooth out the paint.

Step 3: Plan the Guitar Hook Spacing

You could wait to do this until you attach the board to the wall, but I find it easier to do beforehand, so you can lay out the guitars on the floor and move things around as needed. So, all you need to do is lay the board on the floor and then get the guitars you plan to hang and lay the hooks out and “mock” hang the guitars. Once you get the hooks placed and spaced out how you want them, simply mark the screw holes for each guitar hook.

Step 4: Attach the Board to the Wall

You’re ready to attach your guitar wall rack to the wall! Nothing major here. I just simply found the studs in my wall, and drilled screws directly through the board into the wall studs.

Step 5: Attach the Guitar Hooks to the Board

The final step is to attach the guitar hooks to the board. If you followed Step 3, then you should already have all the screw holes marked, and all you have to do is use a drill to attach the guitar hooks. Note: Since my board is only 1″, I went ahead and used longer screws, so they went all the way through the board and into the wall behind. No worries…I’m not planning to move this thing! 😎

I’m very happy with how it turned out, and for under $25 you can’t beat it!

For other guitar lovers, I recently purchased a really cool custom personalized guitar strap from Etsy. You can basically have anything you want written on the leather. Here is the link to the custom guitar strap I ordered from Etsy: Personalized Guitar Strap. Shipping took quite a long time, but it was worth the wait!
