This is the bookcase we converted to coat storage in our hall. Originally the only thing we did in the conversion process was hang the hooks. Recently, it’s been bothering me – it just looked unfinished. So a little of Valspar’s Cracked Pepper (an inky black) and I’m back to being ok with it. I think the streaks are from the not-quite-dry poly coat and the wood trim in the corner is for the stairs project I hope to start….soonish.
