Unique Wall Hook

I found this hook a few weeks ago at a yard sale.  When I found out they were only asking a quarter I knew I had to have it.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it but knew it was too cool to pass up.
  I got it home and cleaned it up with steel wool.  The more I rubbed the more rust appeared.  It turned a dark orange color so I knew I would need to paint it.

  I applied a couple coats of primer and then sprayed it a sage green color.  I then rubbed steel wool over it again to make it looked a little worn.

I love how it turned out.  For now I have it hanging in my bathroom.  It makes me smile every time I walk past it.  Not bad for a quarter.
