The French Laundry...A coat rack project complete!

A few weeks ago I wrote a post on the coat rack for the hallway....see post here. After I bought the hooks, I never seemed to find the time to fix them on...something always seemed to come up! I still have to screw in a couple of hanging hooks at the back of the coat rack so that it can be hung. But it's finally complete!

After I finished attaching the hooks today, I was quite excited to finally finish this pending project just in time for the product launch next weekend. So out came the camera and admittedly I went a teeny tiny bit overboard!

Just a few (ahem!!) pictures... 

The French Laundry coat rack....What do you all think?

These are the coat hooks I purchased aren't they are beautiful?

4 black wrought iron hooks...they are heavy and beautiful...they look vintage and they are perfect for this coat rack!

                       Useful in any room...hang it in the hallway, laundry, bathroom, mudroom, kitchen.....

                                                    I'm loving the rustic feel of the coat rack

 I love all the natural imperfections in the's perfect!!!!

Hand painted letters and numbers...

Here's a reminder of the Before ...just a plain piece of wood...

And the After...

I hope you liked this post.
