Color Block Coat Rack

I found this great coat rack at the Good Samaritan in Helena, a little over a month ago.  Everything is 50% off the first five days of the month, so I got this rack for only $6.  I love a good deal!  A similar coat rack sells for around $50 at Target.  It's a great metal, sturdy coat rack.  It had a few small scratches, so I dressed it up with a couple coats of paint.

First, I wiped down the coat rack to get any dust off.  Then I sprayed a couple, light coats of Rust-Oleum metal primer.  Next, I sprayed a few, light coats of Krylon Brushed Metallic spray paint in Satin Nickel on the upper portion of the coat rack.  It was actually very similar to the original color, but I needed to get rid of a few scratches and I wanted the top to be the same color.  Next, I taped off a section so I could spray the bottom and get a nice clean line.  Again I sprayed a few, light coats of Krylon Short Cuts spray paint in hot pink.  I removed the tape as soon as I was done with the pink to get a straight line.

The coat rack is in our guest room/office most of the time.  I thought it would be nice for our guests to have somewhere to hang a coat or clothes up, since our closet is full of other stuff.  I love it and the pink ties in nicely with my pink desk.  Plus, I can bring it downstairs when we have people over, for extra coat storage.

Happy Champagne Thursday!
