My latest project was too easy. Almost so easy that it probably doesn't even need a blog.
But, I don't care, you're getting one, anyway!
On Friday, my husband and I ventured out to the Thirft Store on base. I picked up a few goodies, like two huge picture frames for future projects. (Which won't be until we buy a house...)
One of the other things I picked up was this wall coat rack.
For $3... Not bad!
I hate that Landon doesn't have a designated area to put his jacket and back pack after school so I decided to make one.
The hooks didn't come off, so I had to put tape around them.
I knew I wanted to paint this a baby blue color, but I was way to impatient to wait to go to the store to buy the right paint. So, I took some white paint and my Peacock Blue paint, (that I used on the coffee table) and mixed them together.
Once I was satisfied with the color, I painted! I intially wanted to "antique" it by sanding down the edges here and there. I tried that. Looked very strange. I don't think I was doing it right. Oh well, I'll save that for a different project.
