and remembered that I still had two small cans of the pink paint from her bedroom. The hook thing is hideous and had scratches and dents all over it - but, I figured for just a few cents I could repurpose it somehow....right? So, I set to work painting the thing with pepto pink, err... Foxy Pink, according to Behr. And you know what? It came out just fine!
I'm working on the 2nd coat now and am thinking about painting some tiny brown polka dots on it - I dunno though. This will be perfect for her room and only cost me a few cents to make! I was so proud of myself (admittedly) and I think Brad even smiled at my project. :) Once it's up on her wall I'll try to grab a pic to show you. I'm planning on using it to hang up her jackets, hooded bath towels - and maybe even her hairbows (once we grow our collection...and hair!).
Hopefully it'll be up before she's driving... but, looks like we are running out of time for that.
