The base is made with wood. You can cut it and make the shape you prefer, even different ones, I am sure it would create a great new effect on your wall! Don't forget that coat racks like this are very useful and decorative at the same time.
There is a thin layer of foam rubber on the wood to make the whole thing a little softer to the touch and less hard and "sharp".
Unlike the old ones, I chose a one color velvet for this one and decided to decorate it with a dark red and white trimmings that look good with the dark pink velvet I used.
With this project, I started to use trimmings for decorating and not only to hide or as "frames" around things. This is a very simple decoration but you can make any kind of geometric shape with them.
This is one of the first "big" things I have done and I'm very proud of the result! I hope it inspires you to do many other big projects as well! :)
