I made a hall tree & painted it Mardi Gras....Care to see? - Lynn Fern

I made a hall tree & painted it Mardi Gras....Care to see?

Update...  I had the wrong color name in the title.  The color is Mardi Gras...sorry about that!

Oh lookie...

I purchased this little dresser at an estate sale for $5, the door for $10 at Habitat and decided the two combined would make a lovely hall tree....


My husband cut the legs down to make it bench height.  And, now I can sit & put my shoes on :)

I changed out the handles on the dresser to knobs.  I just filled the holes that I was not using with wood filler.    I painted the door & dresser La Craie Mardi Gras & used dark wax.  I then attached the hooks on the sides.  I am in love & it really fills in the space nicely!

Not sure why there is a white glare - doesn't have it in person.

Here is a few pictures of the living area.




This is the picture next to the window. 


That chair will be getting a makeover, but I love it so much!













We are getting closer & closer to getting things done around here.  And, I know as soon as I think I am complete I will of course want to change it all up again!!

I hope everyone is having a lovely day!!

    1. I absolutely LOVE this idea. I'm heading to the barn, right after my coffee, to get this started. So delightful and I've been asking my husband for a hall tree for years. :) Wonderful. Thank you so much. :)

  8. Love it so much!! You did a great job putting everything together and I love the color you chose, but then green is my fav color anytime usually. It looks just perfect in the spot you have for it. Isn't it so much fun to transform what others regard as trash? My favorite thing to do in all the world..... keep creating and be blessed. Linda
