Add a simple vintage touch

For a simple vintage touch in your home, refurbish some antique hooks!

1. Take a trip to a local antique store or visit a flea market and pick up some old cast iron hooks.

2. Clean the hooks using a wire brush,
and let them dry completely.

3. Use a foam brush to paint one coat of paint (color of your choice) on the hooks and allow to dry. If you would like a brighter look, repeat this step with a second coat of paint.

4. Using sandpaper, gently scuff the hooks to give them a worn look, varying the pressure in
different places.

5. Apply a clear coat of varnish.

6. Allow to dry one more time and hang for a simple, eye-catching
touch to any home!
