A Variation

I said I would show you a few variations on the footstool I created using wood, and coat hooks.  Here's one with a rustic look.





It started as an weathered pool room sign, and vintage hooks.





I maintained the patina of the hooks by giving them two coats of  a matte sealer, screwed them to the bottom, and sealed the whole piece.





Two looks,








same process.  I think this one would make a great plant stand.
