Rustic Hall Tree

Modified "Mimi's Hall Tree" as I'm a single guy and wanted a more "rustic manly" (haha) look than the white with beadboard.  Widened by 12" and 12" taller as well.  Used 2 sheets of corrugated metal from Lowe's.  The corrugated metal came extremely reflective and just too "new" looking so I followed a youtube video on how to make corrugated metal look old.  It's really easy.  Just rub toilet bowl cleaner on it with steel wool, leave it for 30 min, and rinse off, repeat until desired look is achieved.  You can even leave pieces of the steel wool on with the toilet bowl cleaner and it will create rusted spots.
