The coat rack…..

Or….what I’m painting this week……

towel rack 020




towel rack 016

I’m sure some of you will cringe when you

read I painted an antique oak

schoolhouse coat rack.

The reality is though….


have really tanked around here

and it was more

economical to paint it then

to resell it and buy

a new one.


Finding accessories for this

space has been really challenging which is

why I haven’t posted pics yet.

Hang in there though….I will eventually!


Hope you will consider following me on

Not me - I won't cringe at anything that makes beautiful perfect use of something in one's special is it ever a bad plan?

I think it looks awesome there and in its new "clothes."

Well done.

Kelly said...

I'm not going to scold you for painting it, because I would've done the same thing! Ha! It looks great. I love towels on hooks instead of bars anyway.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I love it painted and cute towel rack idea.

Linda said...

Looks great. I would paint more but I have to contend with MR dh.

O love the coat rack, Des, and it looks great where you have it! Once you start painting, it's hard to stop!

Hi Des,

Cute idea for a towel rack. It looks great painted.


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty from what I can see, Des! I think you need to do with your pieces what works for you.

Olive Cooper said...

Des, it is beautiful and paint whatever makes you happy. Vintage and antique do not sell as good for me as more modern pieces. Many younger people just do not like antiques. Antique stores are closing all over the South. hugs, olive

Kim @ La Belle Époque said...

Charming bathroom, Des, and I love it painted white!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Very pretty Des! Looks like you and me can't put the paint brush down LOL!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

I love the rack, Des and I love that you painted it. The market is extremely slow for antiques here as well.

Anne said...

I love it.Some things are meant to be painted.

Marianne said...

Don't worry, I won't cringe. I paint everything I can possibly find. Not always white but it will get painted. I would paint everything in my home but Mr. County would surely object. And honestly, I think that the coat rack looks great painted!

Anyone who cringes should remind themselves there is something called paint stripper.

I like it painted. There are many, many times when something old looks even better painted...this is one of those times! Great job. Linda
