USE OLD DOOR HARDWARE
TO ACCENT WALL DECOR

Full View - Hat Rack

This buffet mantel piece was a delightful find. It did need to be refinished, but the mirror was in great shape and the holes for the hooks were already there. Apparently, this is how the piece was attached to the original buffet.



Close Up - Door Stop as hook

The hardware I used for the hooks are four old cast iron door stops.
A quick application of “European Gold” Rub n’ Buff,
and the door stops have a new life.

This elegant hat rack provides a charming way to display
my hats & scarves. It also gives me easy access to these items.

METALLIC TINTS

Rub 'n Buff by Amaco is magical. Most Craft Stores only carry the silver & gold, but there are many more wonderful colors/tints available.

The following are some Online suppliers I have located:

www.createforless.com
This place has great prices.

www.framingsupplies.com
The prices are very good and they also have many other unique supplies. I plan to spend a little more time checking out this site.

www.mccallisters.com
Their prices here are not discounted, however, they do have a very good selection. Also, this is the only place I have ordered from. I plan to try the other places listed, and will update this page when I have more information.

Comments: If you have never tried the Rub n' Buff products, you are missing out on a "Golden" opportunity. This product, combined with Folk Art Paints can turn very plain and ordinary items into real "Gems & Jewels".

When you use the Rub n' Buff, it works best to apply it with your finger. The product has a wax base, so the body heat helps make the paint transfer more evenly.
