shoe form coat rack

This project has been waiting in the wings since January- not really sure why, but I finally completed it yesterday!

I saw an idea similar to this a long time ago, and now I don't know where...maybe Country Living mag?
When I was on one of my shopping trips, I came across a pile of these wooden shoe forms and took all the ones that appealed to me.  Then, I went searching for some old barn wood, and found some pieces at my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
A few drill holes, some screws, and some paint, and this is what I created:

One of my favorite things are the numbers.  Everyone can have their own hook. And the wood grain makes the numbers have even more character.

I just love it!  So fun, so vintage and so unique! 
Wouldn't this be great in a boys room, or by the front door?

This will be going into my inventory for the weekend.
My day will be filled with more projects- looking forward to it!
I'm off to the hardware store for more supplies for my dresser makeover.

I hope to see you tomorrow at Transformations and Treasures~
