Second chances

I sometime wonder why things like this seem to call my name. 
I mean,
 it's a piece of wood with holes...
kind of like a cheap version of Swiss cheese.
Kind of...
Yeah, not that attractive.
But for some reason I picked this up and brought it home.

 I really didn't pay more than a dollar for it.
It sat in our garage for several months (like most of our stuff does), until 

I was ready to deal with it.

 You see, I am one of those people that look beyond the appearance. I see the potential, and I am willing to spend time to give it a second chance.
You would have never known this coat rack had holes.
This is now in the girls' room, that I am still working might be done before Christmas.
I said "might".

Stay Frugal,

What a useful piece. You can hang umbrellas, necklaces, ribboned signs, anything in addition to the coats. It looks lovely there.

Really neat, I have one above my guest bed and painted it white, but just don't know what to do with it!
I love yours!

Great pickup :)

I love cute peg racks like that. Looks like you put it to good use. I really like the sneak peek of the room too. The beadboard with the grey wall color and the cute picture looks great!

It does look new! I love how it pairs up with the beadboard!
Hey Daniela, I'm also kind of stuck working on my daughter's room! With Thanksgiving and now Christmas projects I keep on delaying that. I'm hoping on finishing it next week or maybe before Christmas! :)

Good for you! You're not gonna tell us how you filled those holes?

Daniela, I would have had no idea, that there were holes in that piece of wood, you have covered them so well. I am looking forward to seeing your daughters room, because if it is like all the other creative ideas you have shown us, I know it will be wonderful. Have a lovely day. Best Wishes Daphne
