Coat rack thingy...Lol!

So Imentioned the other day that I was working on this hook coat rack type thingy.  What exactly would you call it?

I needed to create something we could hang purses, leashes, and backpacks on when we enter the house.

I started with these totally cute hooks that I found at Hobby Lobby for 50% off!!!  Woo hoo!

I knew that I wanted a very neutral type of look to go along with the look of the family room.

I painted a 24"x6" piece of 1/2" mdf in Rustoleum Ivory Silk.

I added these little wooden architectural thingys to either end of the mdf, also painted Ivory Silk.

Once it was dry, I sanded the edges of the mdf, and aged them using some Tim Holz Distress Ink in Maple Stain (my favorite!). 

I added a little more of the ink on the rest of the piece to give it a more aged look.

Lastly, I added the hooks and WELLA!!!!

What do ya think?

I'm linking up to Frugalicious Friday over at Finding Fabulous!


  1. I love it! You did a great job and bonus on the hooks!! I name everything "thingy" it just makes it more versatile! :)
