I took the coat rack apart and gave the bottom a distressed white paint job. I get a lot of paint from the city's recycling program.

Fortunately for me there is a lot of white latex. Last summer I got 5 boxes of plaster of paris for $1 each at a thrift store, and quickly learned how to make my own chalk paint.
