7 Days of Thrift Shop Flips - Day 4

It's day 4 already! In case you are just now joining in, I am celebrating National Thrift Shop Day with 7 days of thrift shop flips and today is day 4!!

An old chair back becomes a cute hanger!

Celebrating National Thrift Shop Day with 7 Days of Thrift Shop Flips - today's flip is an old chair back!

Today's flip is an old chair back that I turned into a pretty hanger!

Here is a reminder of what it looked like before. The wood was very dry and I had already made a repair along the bottom edge where it had cracked. It definitely needed some love!

I began the makeover by painting it white.

You might not be able to tell from the pictures but it is curved (as chair backs often are) so regular sawtooth hangers on the back would not work very well so I decided to use eye hooks. I found two matching old ones in my stash.

The eye hooks screwed into the top and then I distressed the chair back to bring out the design.

I found three wooden knobs in my stash and painted them too.

I screwed these in from the back.

I picked out some pretty, vintage lace to hang it with.

The last thing I did was distress the knobs and then used some Howard Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish and Conditioner to bring out the wood under the distressed parts.

For this photo shoot, I hung one of my baby dresses on it!

I love this little dress. I even made it a special little hanger and stamped "lovely" on it 😊

What do you think?


Here is what's up for tomorrow's project! I am not using all of them... just a few!!
