I am almost finished with my mini foyer reno. Remember it initially looked like this.
Stunning right? Um yeah not so much. So my first step was to obtain, make or build a bench, chair, ect , or something to sit on when you come in and take off your shoes. So I hit the GW and found the perfect mini bench, however when I went back it was gone. I found these instead..
Thought...these could work.
So I put them in the space. So far so good.
Let me remind you, this space is tiny. I don't want too much clutter. I decided I needed a coat rack and began to search online, Ikea, GW, and couldn't find anything that would work size or budget wise.
I began searching for inspiration and decided I could make it for much less. I went to Home Depot and purchased a piece of pine and cut it to my wall's specifications.
It looked like this...
I wanted an old worn looking piece so I stained it a dark walnut color..
Then painted it a creamy white..
And proceeded to sand it and beat it with a sock filled with nuts and bolts...I couldn't find a chain...lol.
Headed over to Hobby Lobby and found just the right vintage-looking hooks (of course they were half off...I looooove Hobby Lobby:) and had Mr. Rubbish install them..
I then installed it on my little wall....voila! Instant coat rack for $15 bucks!
Found this little piece the next day and thought it would be perfect to hold our shoes...
Sorry for the blurry pic...but I did what every DIYer would do and painted it the same color as my coat rack.
Hung a few pics and here is the
I still have a couple of other items such as a new rug and I would like to have a subway print over the two white chairs but this will suffice for now.
