I wanted to make something to hook back packs and the like for my front door area. Right now it's great for the kids junk so they don't just chuck it on the floor right when they walk in. When the kids are on winter break I'll use it to hold my stockings I'm planning on sewing.
I found the giant yard stick and hooks at Merchant Square in Chandler. I love that place. They have so many vendors I almost always find what I'm searching for.
I went yard sale-ing with my friend Reanne last Saturday and we stopped by the most adorable old man's house. He had gorgeous antique furniture and was using an old door as a table. I told him it was awesome and my friend asked him if he'd be willing to sell it. He said he couldn't take any less than $10. SOLD! Here it is nestled behind my Goodwill chair in my front room.
I also spray painted an old trunk and hand painted a grey red cross symbol for the coffee table in this room. I added some casters for height and so my kids can use it as a battering ram. I'll post more pictures of this room when the Christmas tree is done.
Come back on Thursday for more!
