Old Fence turned Stocking Holder

Our house doesn't have a fireplace so I struggled this year finding a place to hang our stockings.  Last year I hung them below our TV on the console.  But this year my husband said "NO"!  He hated it last year because they caused the remotes to not work!  Oh, husbands!!

So when I found this old fence gate (for only $5) I thought it just might work!  Plus, it was already green!
It was really dirty and the paint was chipping, so I hosed it down good, then gave it a quick sanding to get the big flakes of paint off.
Then I gave it 2 thick coates of polycrylic, added hooks, then added our stockings!
I was hoping to hang it somewhere, but our house doesn't have a lot of wall space in the family room, so I just leaned it against the wall, underneath Santa!  It works!

May you all have a Merry Christmas!
