That’s right, a coat rack for scarves. I’ve been wanting something in the entry to catch my scarves, and maybe even my pocketbook, for at least a year. I would find something that was the right price but not the look I wanted, or cute as could be but a couple hundred dollars. For a piece of wood and some hooks! So, as you can imagine, I took matters into my own hands. Sort of.
I gleaned this little doo-dad from the haphazard shelves of At Home for less than $15. It was the wrong color, of course, but paint was sent to earth so we could all live harmonious lives, free from having the wrong color coat rack. For our scarves.
The mirror under which this would be installed is white. The wall, pale gray. The trim, white. So black and ivory just wasn’t going to cut it. No worries–it took about 15 minutes to paint this thing, let it dry, and voila! It was installed just in time for a little soiree I hosted, and I love it! Decorative and functional. No better attributes than those in my small space.
This could have easily been wallpapered or stenciled as well. When you feel like a shopping failure and can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, remember, you can always add your personal touch and make it your own. I like it. I like it a lot!
