For this project I turned an old cabinet door from my kitchen remodel into a beautiful colorful Serape Arrow Coat Rack!
Here is what the cabinet door looked like originally.
I sanded down the door. It’s ugly now, but will become beautiful!
A smaller drawer panel became my practice piece. I tried to find serape fabric or serape wrapping paper with no luck, so I decided to find a photo of a serape blanket on the internet and print it out on a large format printer. I cut the photo to fit onto the drawer panel and after painting a thin coat of Mod Podge, I placed it on the panel. I smoothed it out with my fingers and a brayer. After it had dried I added a coat of Mod Podge in matte finish.
I drew an arrow on 1/4″ plywood and cut it out on the scroll saw. I cut out a second one and painted both arrows coordinating acrylic paint colors. After it dried I sanded a little paint off, then brushed on a coat of Mod Podge.
I painted the frame blues and yellows rather sloppily, sanded a little, and brushed on a coat of Mod Podge.
I thought this would also make a cute tray by adding rustic handles. I would use a water proof sealer for the finish.
I used the same process mentioned above on the larger cabinet door, arranging the arrows and hooks to fit. This coat rack is 35″ wide x 14 1/4″ tall.
This is a fun Southwest style piece to brighten up any corner of your home. Perhaps you will be inspired to create your own design!
