Bags Welcome Here
Here is my latest project....a place to hang your hat! Err...someplace to hang your purse, diaper bag, backpack, etc!! I was constantly putting my purse and 2-3 diaper bags in our dining room chairs and hated it. So I found this board at my Grandma's house and decided it needed a home...my home!! Teehee!! I started with the above paint...LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!
Here is the board during placement of all the hooks. I bought them at Walmart for $1.97 each. What a deal.
Yep....that is my hubbs working away....man what a hairy beast!! In case you're curious...no, he doesn't have any back hair!!! hahaha! Anyways, I marked where I wanted them and he screwed them in place.
Then he went to hang it...WHAT AN ORDEAL!! None of my ideas were working. It kept tilting and I knew once it was holding bags it would tilt even more. Luckily we came up with a few different ideas and one finally worked. Three LARGE NAILS throughout this board did the job.
Here it is before I dressed it up!! Woo-doggies!! I likey likey!! It is perfect for what our family needed. Thank goodness for free boards....beat up and all!!
And here she is all purty and stuff!!! I am not sure that the saying is exactly what I envisioned, but everyone that has come through my front door seems to like it! And then I just added some ribbon to fancy it up a little!!!
Welcome home friends....please hang your hat (or bag) and stay a while!!! ;)
Hope you enjoyed this project....I am ecstatic about her beauty and functionality!! Thanks for stopping by!
