I am Hooked on These Shoes!

6:00:00 AM

I thrifted this great pair of vintage wooden shoe stretchers...

I thought they'd make great unique wall hooks...

This part was just crying out to be a hook...

And the Brooks Brothers agreed...

Step one was to hinge them together because they
bent in half easily...


I thought they should be monogrammed with 
my husband and my initials so I used stickers as my stencils... 

I stuck on the stickers and traced around them...

 Then I painted inside the lines.

The next step was to distress the letters to match the old wood...

I added a hanger to the top of the shoes 
and they were ready to hang...

I hope you're hooked too!
