I used an old post and mounted it to a couple of pieces of scrap wood painted black to make a hat stand.  Simple yet practical.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Sherri Spear

I totally understand creative basement is filled with it too!

Thanks for sharing.

I say I'm Martha without the Empire. I'm most definitely not as organized as Martha appears to be and certainly not as if you saw the rest of my workroom, most of the time, you'd understand the truth to that sign; I consider it creative chaos!

He's a wonderful plein air artist and this painting was done at Carmody McKnight Winery. I believe it was one of his earlier attempts at water. I just love the blue shutters and the way the two boats are drawn up to the shore. It has a wonderful warmth and mystery about it.

The post I used has a large ball on the top so it's perfect for a hat but if you use a spindle you probably want to attach something larger round on the top so it doesn't dent the crown of the hat. Posted: 12:35 pm on April 21st
