A lot of the hangers were missing on this old coat rack. No problem, just added some decorative ones to the area needed. 
Turns out it kinda hard to phograph a large narrow object.

I won this hand turned coat rack at an auction for a song! Poor thing had went to pasture, missing 3 of the five hangers and covered in dust and muck. Still, I held great respect for the craftsman that  turned the individal pieces and could only image the time and dedication it takes to create it. 

First, I scrubbed the muck off with a scouring pad, and lightly sanded it. Then used black and white paint one after the other following the carved details. Last, added ornate hangers to the sides missing them. 

The black and white paint really helped bring out the detail of the turned piece. It's always fun to add real pops of color with a piece that takes up so small amount of visual space.
