Mid Century Hall Tree/ Coat Rack

Good_Retro_Hall_Stand_as264a108b

This is a great example of the one we picked up. This one looks complete and appears to even have the water catcher tray for umbrellas.

Mel and I hit one of our old haunts, the Antique Company on “X” street and came across this really cool piece.  The owner of this shop routinely gets shipping containers full of mid-century and art deco furniture from England and this is one of those pieces!

This is the one we picked up. It is in really fantastic shape, but I think I am going to change some things up on it.  First, I want to replace the green fabric with either a black or dusty rose/ pink fabric.  Then, I will replace the cording that goes button to button with a gold or black cord depending on what fabric I choose.

As you can see, this unit is missing the water catcher tray, but I am sure I can come up with something.

This will be a perfect place to put your keys when you get home.  Mel always loses her keys, so this might just do the trick.

The brass buttons and hooks need cleaning.

Unfortunately, the mirror is worn and the foil appears to have separated in a few spots.  I will have to get a mirror cut for this piece to replace the old one.  The shelf up top is really cool, a great place to put hats and gloves.  When I was researching this piece I came across some other racks I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on…

Love the styling on this one.  The shape of the mirror is eye-catching just like the fabric!

MUST HAVE!  This also appears to be a room divider.

This one has a Danish feel to it.

This one is a trip!  I love the colors and the imagery on the bottom of the center panel.
