Rustic french postage coat rack

I had this piece of wood that was taken off the top of the two tone dresser I did last summer.  I knew with its rustic look, it would make a great sign of some sort.

There is a good size black circle mark on this that reminded my friend Mary of a postage mark.
I went with her observation and made it into a french postage coat rack.
Can you see it?  Probably from a can of some sort.  I did find the dresser at an estate sale in the garage, so it makes sense.
I really wanted to do the freezer paper method for this, but we were all out and after receiving 16+ inches of snow when I started this project, I'm wasn't going to get it.  I found this graphic at none other than The Graphics Fairy.  I just printed it off using  .  I shaded in the back with white chalk then traced it onto the wood.
Follow that up with some black paint and you have yourself a sign.
After it dried, I wiped off the chalk residue and added some hooks.
Doesn't that look nice?
