So, yesterday I decided that I wanted to make a coat rack.
Earlier this week I was at Hobby Lobby and had some birthday money and decided that it was burning a hole in my pocket. So I thought "I'll just buy some cute hooks and let inspiration flow on how I'll use them." They were all 50% off so that also helped me break down and make the purchase.
I looked through my pile of scraps for some wood that I could re-use. I found a piece of bead board that was the perfect size, and because the bead board was too thin, my hubby cut out a piece of wood to glue to the back of it to make it more substantial.
Here's what I started with:
I found some wood glue in the garage and some clamps...
I glued the wood and clamped it all together making it flush:
I have a few sample sized paints from Valspar that I have for small projects.
For this project I used Reflection Pond and Piano Brown:
First coat of dry brushing with Reflection Pond
(I wanted to keep some of the black showing through)
A bit of Piano Brown:
Second coat with Reflection Pond:
(Ps. Say hello to my little friend! Trevor bought him for me as an early Christmas gift a few months back and we have become the best of friends ever since!!)
Sanded with hooks in place for mounting:
I changed my mind last minute and decided to add another hook
