Hi guys! I had been wanting to put something in my little entryway for a while now. When visitors come over, their coats either pile on the floor or on my bench on the adjacent wall. We’ve lived here over 4 years now and I just now added a little coat rack. Before this, I had a cute, tiny shelf with primitive decor in this spot but no hooks for coats. Let me tell you about this new little area on my wall.
It’s simple. That’s what I like. I’ve been ridding out my entire house, selling stuff, de-cluttering, simplifying. It feels good getting rid of stuff. Anyway, this was a cheap, cheap little project. I like cheap! You already knew that. The 11X14 picture frame came from Goodwill, yep Goodwill, for $2! It didn’t look like that when I bought it, though. Here is what it looked like once I took the glass out of it so I could paint it.
I used a piece of scrap wood for the coat hooks to attach to. I measured the size of the width, and cut my board. I used the same finishing technique to the wood and frame. For the finish, I used Valspar’s Chalky Paint and Wax. Yes, this is the same color I used for both by Jelly Cupboard and Farmhouse sign. I only bought a quart of the chalk paint and it allowed me to do all of these projects. I think that’s pretty good!
The link for Valspar’s paint and wax shows all three of the steps. I used all three- the chalky paint, the sealing wax, then the antiquing wax. Here’s what the setup looked like prior to a picture and prior to the hooks.
I got the hooks at Lowe’s. I don’t have the receipt in front of me, but for right around $4-$5 each. They have an oil-rubbed bronze finish.
As we have about a million projects planned for this year…maybe not a million but close enough. You can follow along as I update our house. In the next couple days, I’ll be posting about our deck to patio project! And you know Jess & I will be building again soon. Stay tuned! Thanks for following along!
