New backpack rack

Since forever ago we have wanted to redo our chalkboard and hooks. Since we don't have a mudroom this hall is our catch all for coats, backpacks and purses.

I have wanted something really rustic that looks like old
recycled barn wood. My honey caught the vision and built these beauties and it was exactly what was inside my head. He's like some kind of building magician. He also chunked out the existing frame on the chalkboard and beat it up so it didn't look out of places with all its newness. Oh how I L.O.V.E.how it turned out.

I am grateful for my new catch all hooks.

Thanks Alicia! We have had the chalkboard forever and it just had a tiny white frame...very basic. My husband added another piece of wood to the existing frame. I am so glad you like it. Have a great week-end!
