Another beautiful day at the Milnerton stalls and look what I found... an old broken coat rack for R10. Can you believe it, only R10! Needless to say I bought it immediately!
At home I screwed it apart and washed the pieces with warm soapy water, then sanded the metal rods a bit so that the paint would stick to it. Joe also cut a circular pieces of plywood out to replace the very rusty ring that was at the bottom.I desided on the beautiful Jade colour (G5-A1-1) from Plascon and a bit of white so that I can slowly mix the colours to get a ombre effect. What fun!!
