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.

    how do you fasten the insulators to the wood?
