Primitive Peg Rack

My husband had a few days off, so he repainted the hallway, where I had painted a mural, years ago.
Then he made me my peg rack, just like I wanted, I love how it came out. I did the painting and antiquing.
I think we make a good team;) I threw a few things on it for now. With Christmas decorating around the corner, I am just doing a bit for now with the new items, then I can start getting my holiday things out to hang on the walls and shelves. I did get head start with some pine boughs and berries that I got in the back yard.

I didn't put any spray on the rack, I wanted a dull, old look. But, the flash glossed everything up, so the items look shiny instead of prim. I am still thinking on my bday giveaway, so stay tuned for that, later in the week. The wonderful black basket is the one, I won, from Pam at BasketnPrims. Be sure to check out Pam's blog, her baskets are beautiful.



And for your amusement, this is drinking time at our house. When one wants water, I turn the faucet on and the other comes running. As usual Dora barged in and took first place, while Izzi had to wait her turn.

Love the peg rack...everything looks so, well, prim! {grin} The cats drinking from the faucet...too cute. I had a lab once who would bark at the faucet in the bathtub until I turned the water on and he would drink from that. Aren't our animals a delight?

You and your husband did a great job on the peg rack. Really prim looking and I like the things you have hanging on it. Too funny..the cats drinking from the faucet. Have a great birthday on Saturday.

Great peg rack. Love all the great stuff hanging on it! And such patience to await a turn at the sink.

Great new rack! You do make a super team! :)

Love seeing the kitties too. My Sarah girl does that with the drippy faucet we have in the bathtub. We always know when she has been in there because the top of her head is always wet.

The peg rack looks great. It will be a great area for holiday decorating. The cats sure have personality!

I miss the cat drinking out of the faucet! My Riley used to do that every morning while I was in the shower, I miss that fat cat. New cat Frito doesn't give 2 hoots about drinking from anything other than his bowl. I've even tried to teach him how to do it - don't ask! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. ~Ann
