Goodwill Accordion Hanger

A couple of weekends ago, I went to Goodwill. To drop off lots of stuff. I decided to also roam the aisles as well, since I was sans children (it was a Saturday). I'm not sure how, but I ended up spending $42!!!! Well, okay, I know how: I found lots of super awesome stuff that had amazing potential for all kinds of things! One of my finds was this wooden accordion hanger. I believe I bought it for $1. Maybe $2. It's perfect, as I figured we would need a place for Jillian to be able to hang her backpack and jackets, now that she's in school 4 days a week.

So now, a couple of weeks later, I have painted it green (definitely took several coats, since I didn't sand it down) . . .

Mod Podged it . . .

And had hubby hang it (I wasn't opposed to hanging it myself, but he wanted to find studs, etc.):

WOOHOO!!!! Goodwill success!!!
