a couple years ago hubby got this mirrored coat rack gratis from someone he helped. it sat in the back porch collecting dust, destined for the rummage sale bin.
a few months ago one of my favorite bloggers posted about what she did with her shawls. she hung them on a shaker peg board. i thought it was an awesome arrangement, although i had no place to hang a pegboard, as we have coat hooks by the front and back doors and they contained, well, our coats. i didn't know where else i could hang them becos i wanted to show them off.
i remembered this coat rack and toyed with stripping and staining it, or painting it a totally different color, but i had no idear where to put it. one night as i was going to bed, i noticed one of our bedroom walls. it had a couple pictures hanging on it (an old picture of the boy and a caricature we did at a fall festival). i thought it would be a good place to hang the coat rack and put my shawls on it.
the kids were at my parents' house for the weekend and hubby and i were working around the house and he offered to hang up the rack.
