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


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!

    Great Idea, but I didn't understand about the huge wooden dowel screws that were on the posts they were on???? Could you explain further please?

      @Dee Lynch Yes, I know, it's sort of confusing. Insulators were originally used on powerlines. They were attached by being screwed on with the big wooden dowels (that they are screwed onto). I was lucky enough to get the beams/wooden "dowel screws" and insulators off my parent's farm. Most of the time people find insulator at yard sales and the wooden screws are not available.
