Week 3: Get To Work // Day 16: Coat Rack
This will sound strange, but before we bought our house, I used to walk past it on my way to work and through the window that looks into the entry, I could see a coat rack with coats hanging on it. For some reason I just felt that made it look so welcoming, so ever since we bought the house, I had it in my head that I wanted a coat rack.
Therefore, when my neighbors put theirs out front for the taking, I went over and carried it home. I actually nearly ran toward it because I saw a car slow down and worried they wanted it too. Who needs their dignity when instead they can fulfill a vision. Ha!
I will say, though, that it can feel a bit awkward to bring your neighbors’ unwanted pieces inside, but I’d done it before (the bench) and I’ll do it again! Really, if it’s something you want, how much more convenient does it get??
I don’t have a better “after photo” and I actually didn’t get to finish it completely because I ran out of time and had to go to work, but I did put it back in the entry and even half-done it already looks much better to my eye.
Now I just need a day that’s a bit sunny or at least dry so I can do some more spray painting outside!
