Finally! And without further ado, I present the ugly cabinet door and bedpost transformed into a charming vintage coat rack…
This was my inspiration:
I pinned it from Hammers and High Heels here http://hammersandhighheels.blogspot.com/2011/11/bachmans-2011-holiday-idea-house.html. Visit this site, if you haven’t already, for a veritable feast for the imagination. The images and ideas are like eye candy for the soul. My humble project and
miniscule non existent photography skills can’t compare, nevertheless, the transformation from ugly door/bed post to shabby chic coat rack is quite cute, don’t you agree?
Here it is all functional and everything , staged with an umbrella, scarf, and trench coat.
The burlap and greenery are easily removed so that seasonal decor (I’m thinking colorful silk ribbons and glitzy beads for New Years, white lace and pearls for Valentine’s Day, and violets and eyelet for Easter. And in between, it looks just fine naked.
The best part, it was practically free since I made it from other projects, and I am saving resources by upcycling treasures that were likely headed for the dump. This is going into my Christmas display at Mike’s Unique. Check it out at booth M4 in late October, and let me know what you think!
