Although I’ve really loved having our chalkboard in the entryway, I found a new home for it because my family had the need for some coat hooks to hang things on when coming in from outside.
A few weeks ago I found this great listing on the “free” postings on Craigslist in a town about 1/2 an hour from here. So after dropping my daughter off at preschool, I drove down, only to be a bit too late. The things that had caught my eye were already taken. Of course. I don’t know why I thought they wouldn’t be, but I was willing to take my chances. I was happy, however to still leave with a few things others didn’t find so valuable. Apparently someone was cleaning out all that had been left behind in this house she was getting ready to sell. One of those “not so valuable” things was a very long weathered board. I was thrilled! It was just right for what I was wanting to do.
So first I used my stud finder to figure out where all the studs were.
One thought on “Weathered Coat Rack”
Such a lovely piece of aged wood and it totally rocks that you got it for free! I just love when a piece in a home is beautiful, but also serves a practical function!
