Branded Coat or Photo Hanger

I wish I had a place in my home for one of these.  I'll make one for the next house for sure!  What I imagined was a block of wood hanging down from each one by craft rope and a picture Mod Podged to the blocks.  I think it would be super cute.  But it could also be used as a coat hanger or many other things!

I made this with a 1x6 and a 1x4. To start out I lightly traced where the 1x4 would sit, so I knew where to draw my brands.  I looked online for ideas for brands and then drew them on.  My husband burned them in with the wood burner for me.

I sanded down the edges and corners.

And then I stained it with Minwax Wood Stain, Early American.

I painted the 1x4 with antique white I had left over from my Apothecary Console. Then I sanded down the edges, and stained the whole board. 

I attached the star hooks with 1 1/4in screws, so they also held the two boards together.  The screws I had were silver and I knew that would clash with the star hooks so I stuck them in the ground and spray painted them.  It wasn't an exact match, but it was a lot closer.

I really like how it turned out!
