A Sunday Project

So I was bored today, or maybe it was my inner Martha Stewart coming out. I decided to finally paint the coat rack we have hanging in our utility room. I bought it at a yard sale last year for $10. Quite the steal since I've since seen them for about $30-$40. I'm all about the bargain!

Here are a few before pictures...

I first taped off the mirrors, then headed outside with my trusty spray paint.

I used American Accents spray paint in Heirloom White. Why did I choose this color? It's what I had in my cabinet! Ha!

It took about 3 coats to cover the dark wood. I did not sand it first, that takes too much time, and I'm impatient! After the final coat dried I "antiqued" it with some sandpaper and here ya go..the finished product!

Hope you like it. I LOVE it!


  1. OMG I love it!! Ummmm Can you please come to my house and teach me all this crafty stuff :)
