I am so super excited to show you all this project. I literally finished it about 15 minutes ago and wanted to blog about it right away.
We have recently become in need of a doorway coat/key/purse hanger. But they are oh so very expensive. So we visited our neighborhood Habitat for Humanity Restore. If you've never been to one, I highly recommend it. And take a camera and notepad with you because you're creative juices will get flowing and flooding.
It all started with a cabinet door. How much you ask? A whole $2!!
Isn't it beautiful?!? Ok, maybe not, but just wait and see!
First I sanded it so that the paint would stick to it. See how it doesn't look shiny and finished anymore?
Next I used an espresso brown spray paint on it. It's our favorite color and we always make sure to have it in stock at our house. Then I let it dry overnight.
The next part is fun ladies! Get that power drill out! Woo!
Drill your holes and screw in the hooks. I already had the hooks from years ago but you can find them at Walmart for cheap.
Here's what it looks like painted and with the hooks screwed in.Oh I love it! But I'm not done yet. Looks pretty plain on the inside huh? Next find: 8x8 mirror squares, also at Walmart, for $3 each.
After measuring and marking where they will lie, I used mirror mounting tape ($2.50 at walmart) to attach them to the cabinet door. And here's the finished product:
Isn't it just great?!?! Luke really loves it. And it'll be his responsibility to hang it on the wall. Here's another angle:
I really think that it turned out great. The best part was obviously the cost. Total ended up being $10. LOVE IT! How much do these cost at the store? Definitely about $40.
And seriously, if you haven't been to a ReStore, GO! I have 2 other big projects I'm working on from stuff we got there.
