It's finally done!

Yes, it is true!  It is finally done!

My little shutter project, remember?

Well, after many layers of stripper and then many layers of white spray paint in below freezing temps I have the shutter all primed and ready to go.

I have this wonderful little collection of knobs that I acquired after the holidays.  I wanted them for Christmas, but never got them.  So when I saw them on sale at 50% off, I drove my happy little tush to Hobby Lobby and grabbed me a bunch!

See....aren't they pretty?!

I took my shutter and rubbed a nice layer of glaze onto it and then came the hard part.  (Aside from the other obstacles that I have faced on this little project.)

Which way do I like my knobs on this thing?


I think this is the one...but it needs a little something different.

Oh yeah, there we go!  Much better.  So, now I have this custom made coat rack ready for the wall.

I really like it and I think it will work out great for my little family.  Hopefully the walk in and drop off everything routine will come to an end with this thing.

Now, I just have to get Sir to help me hang it on the wall.  It's 5 feet long and not exactly the lightest thing.  I could do it myself but it would be so much easier with Sir, plus I think he kind of likes to help me out.

Kind of.

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon.  Oh, and I found a lamp base for my mondo shade that I made earlier.  Can't wait to get it finished as well...if these darn temperatures would just get a teeny bit warmer.  Not a heat wave, but above 32 degrees would work!
