Coat Rack Revamp

stuff 006

Do you remember when I blogged about adding this Wrought Iron above my coat rack?

before

 

Yesterday, I casually asked my hubby if we had any black spray paint. He said he thought we did. What did I have in mind? I told him that I thought I would like to have the coat rack painted black to match my wrought iron. He thought that was a great idea, and his wheels started spinning. He said he thought he had an idea that I would like. He went to the shop to start working on it. I took a nap.  When I woke up, this is what he had waiting for me. Rolling on the floor laughing

He added little framed piece, then he added a little bit of (car) body putty to mimic a weld. He painted the framed piece a gun metal gray. He also painted the (gold) hooks gun metal after removing the ceramic knobs. He  painted the rack itself, black. I think it looks great! (Ok, I see he needs to paint the screw heads…it’s on the ‘to do’ list.)

The welds on the wrought iron piece are what inspired him.

Thanks honey! It looks great, and I love it! Red heart

We’re heading out shortly for a motorcycle ride to Tanner’s Orchard. The sun is shining, it’s a beautiful day, and I’ll be wearing my winter jacket!

Impressive. Your husband must be a jewel. Could you cover the screw heads with permanent magic marker? It might not dry---just a thought. I enjoy reading your blog.
