Just white. Anything more would clash with the wood, which might be a bit overwhelming.

Unfortunately, some people might not regard this woodworking as a masterpiece. If you have to hang a painting here, use a picture hook like this:

which leaves a smaller hole that the regular nail.

Thank You!

I'd post a picture of the opposite side, but it's pretty much the same thing.

I might though, after I create a new coat rack for the wall..... Po)

Thanks YM!

The coat rack is on hold for now 'cause that stupid butthead goat busted a hole through the chicken coop door, so I'll be installing a new (used) steel door today out there. I'm thinking on how to create it (the coat rack) though...... Any ideas welcomed!

Steel door was too big, I had to make one from scraps. Triple ply, he's not getting in any more. ***stupid goats***

Here's how I finished the ceiling. Textured/painted, then 2" oak trim. Now to figure out how to do the coat rack.....

s'nuttin'.... The trick was finding a 2x6 for the knob side.... then I just rabbeted in an inch and a half then screwed/glued in the OSB. Then some slats to strengthen, then another piece of OSB on the outside. Ugly but strong!

Coat rack is almost done. I'll post a pic later.

Here's how I made the coat rack. As simple and as matching as I could make it!

It looks nice with the rest of the woodwork. I like that there are only 4 pegs. You won't have 20 coats hanging there all year long... most of them not being used... like at my house .

The old toy box she keeps gloves and scarves, frisbees, etc. in looked like heck.... it's seen better days what with huge gouges on it, warping lid, etc.
