Changing Up A Coatrack

I always like to show you the after shot of my makeovers first.
 Because why start a post with something ugly!

Except in this case the before wasn't ugly at all.
I've owned this sweet little coat rack for quite a few years now. I used to have a pink and green guestroom that it looked great in. But when Levi came along the guestroom turned into his nursery and this coat rack has been sitting at the bottom of my closet.

My moms birthday was this month; now don't worry I gave her store bought gifts too, but I decide to paint this and send it to her. It seemed like something she would like.

My mom loves white. So out came my big ol' can of white paint and away I went.



I highlighted a bit of the raised areas with some taupe paint.

My mom doesn't go for the distressed look as much as I do so I tried to keep it light.
I hope my coat rack likes it's new home ;).
And more importantly, I hope my mom loves it.

  13. It's gorgeous. She is gonna love it. I found one similar at a thrift shop the other day that is painted black. I was debating on painting it white. After seeing yours, I think I will.

  21. I have this same coatrack--I think I bought it at Kirklands 3 or 4 years ago on clearance! I have it in my foyer (very small) with its original paint scheme--it goes will with the very pretty Mint gelato wall color--think if Mountain Dew was opaque--a nice cheery bright green--but not too in your face! I really love color, but my house it gradually becoming whiter and whiter! I hope you'll follow me back to my blog--I've got a fun White Wednesday post of one of my favorite haunts!

  26. Visiting from Cottage Instincts. I think the coat rack is lovely, and your mom will be delighted. But I don't think there's anything wrong with ALL re-purposed and previously loved gifts. That's what my daughter got for her birthday just today.
