Transformed :: Antler Coat Rack

April 19th, 2012

shed antler hanger hook diy coat rack paint gold

Are you all as excited as I am for the weekend? Claire here, with a perfect Sunday project that’ll add color, storage and unique style to any space. Two weeks ago I collected a few images of some deers sheds in various styles and settings, and started brainstorming how I was going to transform my own found antlers. I live in a small two bedroom bungalow and am constantly challenged to find new storage solutions, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to add some super stylish organization to my space by making a coat rack and a jewelry holder! Want to see how simple it was? We’ve got the easy instructions just after the jump.
