So, just yesterday my wife and I were talking. With Christmas coming up, we were trying to figure out where to put up the stockings. Inspiration hit like a bolt of lightning…or maybe it was the third glass of Jameson (yesterday wasn’t a good day after all). Either way, I came up with an idea that should be a nice little project that will also help fill a definite need in our house.
My plan is to take some simple pine and run coat pegs through it – enough so that there’s a place for all the stockings now and for the future – and paint it to match the trim in the living room where it’ll do duty after christmas as a coat hanger for our son who can’t ) quite reach the coat rack. I found some pegs in the Lee Valley catalog, but I still need to check out Rockler and Woodcraft and compair size, shape, cost, etc.
Not only that, but it’ll serve as a great reason to get a router. After all…we don’t want ugly in our living room, now do we? ;) I’ll decorate up the ends of the piece and see what we’ve got. Like I said, it’s a simple project but it serves a need so why not!
