Find & Flip: Vintage Spool Hook Chalkboard
On our adventures at the Brimfield Antique Show in Massachusetts we discovered vintage spools from old factories that came in all different shapes and sizes. Between the spools and finding some beautiful flower curtain tie-backs from the 1940s, we were inspired to flip these pieces into a functional set of coat hooks.
•Expect to pay $3-$5 for spools in this size. We bought the tiebacks for $1 each. Search flea markets and garage sales and, of course, etsy.com
•A great alternative to decorating the spools are vintage buttons

2Measure to evenly space out spools on the bottom half of basswood plank. Be sure to leave space for text at the top. Use a pencil to mark the placement of each spool.
3Check with your hardware store to find the appropriate means to attach spools to the basswood plank. Tip: Use Quick Grip in addition to support attachment. Use Quick Grip to attach flower tiebacks to the spools.
