Got tired of boring hooks and lack of original coatracks.



Will have to redo the feet eventually because they don't screw perfectly flush to the wall but so far they are doing the job and are surprisingly sturdy

I like it!  Are they doll-making parts, or did you amputate poor little Tiny Tears?

Hehehe ... only one doll got sacrified ... the cheapest one I could buy at Zellers. I made a mold of the leg and hand and then I made casts with plastic resin, putting a screw-on hood inside so they can be screwed on the wall.

It was my first time casting so I had a few bubbles, especially on the hands but I fixed them with green stuff epoxy compound.

talk about original (*this rocks*)! i think it would be really cool to do it with a variety of different shapes and sizes...barbie arms, big ol' fat baby arms, etc. i was trying to picture what kind of decor you could use this with. i really like that deep purple in the first picture- this is creepy, but it goes well with the "skin" tone!

really cool, reminds me of the coat racks in willy wonka (the original). remember how all of the racks were hands sticking out of the wall?

I'm impressed.  It's even better than I thought.  Great work!

Uhm, I'm scared of you. And I want some baby limbs attached to my wall, too!

I think it's awesome.  And BTW our rooms are the exact same color.
