porch post into coat rack

sherreeSeptember 30, 2004

we were given this old porch post. added the plynth blocks to the bottom for stability. (plynth blocks are blocks used to frame the bottom of a door on either side.) added a wood board to the top & then drilled a hole for finial. painted and distressed the whole thing. added feet for cuteness. then lastly added hardware.
