My New Coat Rack

While everyone else is posting recaps, I'm still trying to catch you up on what I've done this year before I recap it:-)

My front hall looks like your entering an apartment.
It's ugly and boring to be frank and it's fixing to get its second makeover.
You can see its first makeover  here.

I sold the shelf that I built...

Remember my philosophy on buying/building cheap and selling big?
That's what I did.
The main reason is because that shelf was really more romantic and dreamy than I was wanting.
(It totally had NOTHING to do with making money on it. Really. No for real)

My new one is all manly!

Check him out.

I have big plans for this space so pretty soon my little hook thingy won't look quite so forlorn.

The best thing about him other than his rugged handsomeness?
He cost me $4 and about 30 minutes to build.

He's a keeper.
Until someone wants to buy him...:-)

They are extreme opposites, but I love them both! Fantastic work!

I do like the second one the best. You are a crafty lady. Way to go!

Yep - I like it better too! Great job

Love it! It's like the "Marlboro Man" of coat racks! How could you possibly part with him?

Nice! I'm heading in a more masculine direction this year, too. I decided, that with 2 little boys and a farmer, I was outnumbered!

belated congrats to you on being in This Old Magazine. How cool!
Love the new look of your blog header.
Have a great New Year!

Hey super-star sister! I love your new coat rack also and want one, but where in the world would I hang it? Do you think it would work on the ceiling?

great racks, they can save more space than coat stand.
