This idea has been around the internet forever…but the supplies for it came together a few weeks ago when I wandered into a thrift store in my old hometown Longview, Washington. I couldn’t resist buying the bag of glass knobs because the price was too good to pass up…. $6.00 for six!
I already had the pine picket which I bought at a vintage hardware store several years ago. It was already painted white….so my upcycle was a matter of spacing out the glass knobs, drilling the holes and threading the knobs on to the picket.
I took this photo in my dining room, which is not going to be the coat racks home. I already have a coat rack I love in another room so I must decide if I need to make room for it in my studio where I can organize my necklace supplies or in the entryway where I can hang my finished necklaces that are ready to go to Sunrose Gallery or list on Etsy. Guess I’ll need a quarter to toss for that decision!
I love serendipity. The price was too good to pass up on the glass knobs + a white picket that I had no idea what to make = a rack dedicated to displaying my whimsical necklaces.
