Hanging Rack for the Entryway

Before we went to California, I bought a set of these cool vintage date nails from the Knick of Time Etsy shop.

I recently used this image in the post I did about my 49th birthday. Pretty awesome coincidence that she just happened to send me the 49 : )

I've been following Angie's blog and shop for over a year and her creativity is always inspiring. She's one of my "junk idols"!

I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to use them for, but recently it became obvious to me that our entryway needed some t.l.c. and a little organization. I decided to use the date nails to create a hanging rack out of the top piece of a vintage crib panel. 

I picked up two curbside crib panels several years back. One became a chalkboard {currently in my living room} 

The other one I took apart and used some of the parts to make the backdrop for my electric fireplace. I was left with this top section and the center panel (I have a plan for that, too).

I attached two D-ring hangers to the back. I pre-drilled the holes for the nails a bit so I wouldn't crack the wood, then carefully hammered them in until they felt firmly in place. I didn't get the angles all perfectly matched, but you know that doesn't bother me.

Super easy! My son is a little bummed because he thought I might be using those nails for some hanging space in his room, though. Who knows, maybe I'll get another set. ;)

I'm loving our new hanging space in the entryway. Now to figure out how to handle the ever-present pile of shoes-hmm...

I'll be sharing the rest of the entryway and stairs area in my next post, so be sure and come back soon.

Thanks so much for reading, friends!
