When I bought it, I thought I was going to paint the frame black and hang it in our entryway.
But then I decided that maybe the red color looked fine as is. The finish is kind of chipped and worn, which I like.
If I hang it in the mudroom, I'm definitely leaving it red, because I kind of like the eclectic mix of things I have on that wall, so I wouldn't want it to match the shelf. And I think I would get some sort of old wire basket to hang underneath it.
What do you think? Black or red? Entryway or mudroom? Any other ideas besides a wire basket underneath?
