I was given a large white picket fence the other day and it has been raining for 2 days, making it impossible to create what I wanted. I did manage to dry a few pickets inside, so I thought I would try to make a few things from my Pinterest “to try” board. A few months ago, my dollar store had drawer handles 2/1.00, and I just couldn’t resist buying a few dozen. I knew I would use them someday, and today was the day. I took one of the pickets and put a fresh white wash on it and added several knobs, to create a coat rack out of it. I was happy with the results 🙂
I really thought I did a better job of centering, but after looking at the picture, lol, guess not.
I collect silver and silverplate, I love making jewelry and wind chimes with them, so I bent a few spoons and put a tea light candle on each spoon. I also added a fresh white wash on the picket and I really like the way this came out. I will definitely make more of these !! 7/27/12 update…..hot glue didn’t hold the spoons on the board, will try a different adhesive tomorrow.
Hopefully more of the fence will be dried out tomorrow and I can try making a shelf or bench. Until then, I am attempting to make sheet covered hangers I saw on Pinterest the other day, I thought they looked really cute and would fit in with my decor 🙂
