A Place to Put My Coats (part 3)

The other day I completed the painting for my coat hanger.  I mixed a huge batch of gray acrylic paint to paint the border.   I applied two layers of this color.  Then I replaced the inner panel with the painting on it.  As for the coat  “hooks,”  I chose five cool kitchen cabinet knobs from Lowe’s.  I like them sideways, but I’m not sure if it will be practical that way, so I’ll have to wait and see.  Now I just have to find a good sturdy way to hang this on the wall.  Here’s a look at the before and after:

    I just read your entry again and realized a faux pas! the knobs were from Lowe’s! Not Home Depot.

    That’s a lot better, wish I could paint like that, nice stuff!

      Thanks, Kalina. A less-complicated option would have been to use stencils and create a cool graphic pattern, OR cover the panel with patterned or textured fabric.
