When we were building our home, I purchased this half circle window from a local person who sold used building materials. I had no idea what I was going to do it, I just liked the way it looked. A couple of years ago, I saw a similar rack and borrowed the idea for my window. First I cleaned it up but no sanding or repainting, I left it just like it was. I then went to Hobby Lobby and purchased the cast iron coat hooks. My handy son installed them and, Viola!, I have a one of a kind rack in my master bath. I love it!
