Ten On The Tenth Thrift Store Makeover
Hello Dear Readers and welcome to TEN on the TENTH! If you are a bargain shopper today is your day! Today you will find thirteen bloggers sharing economical, easy and naturally, thrifty ideas on how we made the most of our thrift store shopping experience. Today I am sharing my DIY Farmhouse Wall Hook Rack. This DIY project is a quick makeover and makes for super cute home decor, for any room in our homes. Double bonus is this… I think it’d be perfect for Valentine’s Day too!

As you probably know by now we recently moved to Monument Colorado and naturally one of the first things I wanted to do was check out the nearby shops. Monument has a super cute downtown and I have really been looking forward to checking out a few of our local thrift shops too.
This past week Sadie and I loaded up in the Yukon and headed out. I even had a small list of wish items in my purse and I had truly planned to make a full day of it. However once I arrived at Tri-Lakes my search ended.
The shop was manageable in size, well stocked, interesting displays and tidy. I came home with several treasures that I most definitely will be sharing with you very soon!
But for this blog post our challenge was to find a thrift store find for under ten bucks. You won’t believe this – I found my treasure for $5.00 with money left over for a chocolate milkshake!
I found this rather humdrum stained wooden rack and gave it a new life with some light sanding, chalk paint and acrylic paint.
P.S. Customize this makeover to your liking, DIY is all about your vision and style.
Supplies For DIY Farmhouse Wooden Wall Hook Rack
- Wooden Hook Rack
- Nails (for hanging rack)
- Paint Brush
- Black Acrylic Paint
- White Chalk Paint ( I used spray paint)
I think this project is one of the easiest ones that I have ever done. Having a repertoire of different levels of DIY projects makes for a satisfied creator. We all know that we do not want BIG projects all of the time…
Directions For DIY Farmhouse Wall Hook
- Sand lightly
- Wipe down with damp cloth.
- Allow wooden piece to dry and then spray paint with white chalk paint.
- Once chalk paint has dried paint hooks and edges of wood with black acrylic paint.
- Once piece is dry using nails and hammer hang Farmhouse Wall Hook.
- Presto we are all finished, now wasn’t that a piece of cake!
Thank you so much for joining us all today.
I would also like to thank each and every one of you for the caring and kind comments you have left me. Feeling very thankful!
Happy Valentine’s Day Week!
