Have you been busy spring cleaning? Working outside in the yard? Or fixing things around the house?
Now that the weather is slowly getting warmer I started to tackle some things on my "To Do List" around the house like repaint some of our walls. Another is to organize and clean out our garage. We actually used it for our cars once upon a time, but somehow it became storage over the winter. I'm a neat freak so this is definitely next on my list. If you have any tips or things you did in your garage please share. Thanks!
But first I'll share my first project... making a coat rack/wall art.
I was tired of constantly picking up the kids jackets off the floor and I figured H & N are old enough to start hanging up their own jackets. I got my inspiration when I saw my friend's entryway project. I thought it would be a fun to do my own version.
STEP 1: Pick color swatches for the walls. I knew I wanted a darker shade for the wall since I wanted the trees to be white. Our final choice, GrayViolet D-34-4 from Olympic paints.
STEP 2: Paint wall & let dry overnight. Since our walls were previously white I only had to paint one coat.
The hooks are still a bit too high for N to reach since we didn't want it too low and make it an accident waiting to happen, the kids have a tendency to run down the hall when they play. But it's never to early to start training kids good habits, right?
