Did any of you get married in the late 90’s and register for one of these kitchen window shelves?
They were all the rage when we got married… cute at the time, but mine has been sitting in the garage since we moved here 2 years ago. A few weeks ago when we had a garage organization party (wahoo) I came across it again & INSPIRATION hit. Don’t you love when that happens. I suddenly saw what this sad, dusty and abandoned shelf was meant to be.
Why a new coat rack of course! I had found hooks at Lowes on clearance for 82 cents a few weeks ago, so I was set for this project.
I popped off the legs, did a little sanding, a few coats of 97 cent black spray paint from Lowes and a coat Krylon’s Satin Black and she was on her way.
Attached my coat rack hooks, but she needed a little more…
I added an inviting “Welcome” for my guests to hang their coats. To do this I just printed out “Welcome” in Word in the font and size I needed. Then I just traced on top with pencil to leave an indent (you have to push hard). Then I painted on top with some creamy vanilla acrylic paint.
I love being able to transform something I would have sold at a garage sale or donated into something I needed… Satisfaction!
