Aqua Distressed Coat Hooks

I sell quite a variety of vintage items in my shop,
but it's not often that I've added handcrafted items.

However, recently the decision was made to begin adding handcrafted items
either created from vintage pieces or items that are vintage inspired.

Why add handmade?
Because I get this itch in my fingers,
that runs down through my hands,
and sprints up my arm,
then plunges into my brain,
telling me it's time to make something.

The coat hooks that I recently shared sold today.

Can I tell you I was just ecstatic that they sold?
Over the moon!
Doing the happy dance!

It was wonderful to know that someone else liked the pieces that I'd created
enough to add them to their home.

Four more pieces of the molding were left,
they were all brown.

I thought a touch of aqua would brighten them up a bit.

I'm heading out tomorrow in search of more molding.

I badly need one of these to corral my key ring.
