Framed antique coat hook collage

This project was inspired by an episode of "Dear Genevieve", where she decorated a livingroom wall with a collection of antique coat hooks of different vintages, styles, sizes and metals.  I set about to collect antique coat hooks for the next year or so, picking them up whenever I saw an interesting one at a flea market, antique shop or salvage yard.  I then found an antique picture frame at an old salvage yard (for free!), then painted it white. I bought a piece of hardboard at the home improvement store ($2), cut it to fit inside the frame, and painted it the wall colour. I arranged the hooks onto the hardboard, then used epoxy to glue them into place on the framed hardboard.
