My Latest Insulator Coat Rack ...(the shabby version)

Projects 07.20.15
I thought I would make some new insulator coat racks to sell, and therefore decided to stick with the neutral insulators. I crackled painted and scraped the paint before drying to get a heavily distressed look on the baseboard before adding the clear insulators. I'm liking the finished product!

    What a great idea for the insulators that aren't real valuable - our son has collected a few since he was young so maybe I can check his stash!! :)

    Depends on what kind they are. The colored ones that Charlie has are gorgeous and pretty pricey, I imagine. We run across the green/blue and clear all the time, in fact, just got rid of about 4 5 gal buckets of them! Some parts of the country don't see

    I put tea lights in some of mine and randomly turn them on for display. Seeing your coat racks makes me want to make some door kickers to keep my doors from hitting the walls.

      Yvette The first time, I screwed in dowls and used lots of liquid nails glue. The second time, I was smarter adn used the huge wooden dowl screws that were on the posts they were on
