I then sanded down the two ends to the saddle and rounded the edges. Next I stained the wood after drilling holes for the mounting anchor bolts and the extra long threaded bolts that fit the closet door knobs.
I had black decor covers to hide the heads of the mounting anchor bolts as you can see on the left side of this second image.
Since I had all the hardware, this was an easy project to save Money, Energy, and Earth, by Reducing my "wants" to create my own product that met my "need" while Reusing and Recycling.
