Barn Wood Hook Board

The other day I showed you the leaded glass window shelf we made for my friend Karlye. Well, she also wanted some hooks to hang below a piece of decor she had already purchased for her home. She requested barn wood for the hook board. And she was in luck! I just happened to have a few pieces in my garage waiting to be plucked and turned into something fabulous!

She chose this piece with the chippy red paint. Love her choice!
Eric cut the board to the correct size, just a little wider than the piece of decor she wanted to put this under. I made sure to mark where I wanted him to make the cuts so we could keep intact the cool uneven part you see on the left hand side of this pic...
Not to mention, how cool is this old knot on the other side? 
I added some dark stain to the edges where Eric had made the cut. The board was old enough that it was looking slightly worn all the way through, but I thought the stain would make anyone forget that we had made the cut at all. It did the trick! 

Karlye had also given me these double hooks for the board. But she had purchased them new at the store and they looked, well, brand-spanking new! I used some Ce Ce Caldwell's Virginia Chestnut on those to grunge them up a bit and then I waxed them and attached 5 hooks to the board, offsetting them so they weren't all in a straight line. 
I love how this turned out! Just as much as I love the window shelf we made for her. I think that the next time Karlye asks me to make something, I'm just going to have to make 2 of them and keep one for myself! :)

Everyone loves a good party!
