Ecolovies ~ Wooden tree coat rack

Remember this blank wall in the newly remodeled homeschool room?

Well, it isn't so blank anymore!

The entire thing was free and recycled. Scrap lumber found in my kindling pile (what I was looking for when I found all my crown molding) along with old rulers, white washed with left over paint from the trim and added hooks from an old coat rack. Not sure how I feel about the little red felt flowers that I added right this second, but I am loving the rest. Luckily, the flowers are only held on with tiny tacks that I didn't stick in all the way, so they should be easily removed if I needed to do that.

What do you all think of my artsy tree coat rack??
My inspiration was here, but I made my a bit more uniform and a bit more splinter free. ;)

Cute! It is so nice to have a place to put the coats and boots by the door. It helps to keep the house much cleaner and the kids learn to be neat too. Love it.

I think it's a wonderful idea. Looks like you brought nature inside.
