comment How to handle painted backsplash that now has bubbling paint
@horstu Yes - there's tile everywhere else. The issue here (that's not in the photo - sorry) is that the wood makes up part of the window frame that's directly above the sink. It's a fair bit of wood, maybe 4 inches, but it matches other windows.

@bcworkz Yes - I'm not sure I explained my idea well enough. The point of proposing a wooden batten behind the hooks is to hit the studs. I can screw the batten onto the studs; then the hooks onto the batten. My question is the thickness of the batten and the length of the screws.

Hmmm... I've never used them but they look like they'd make the coat hooks rather wobbly - no?

comment How do I install a range anti-tip kit into hardwood floor on concrete?
Thanks for the answer - for the record, I want to install it to stop the range falling over and killing my kid. But, hey, turkey!
