Hello AT, I have the Lesvik Ikea shoe bench in my entranceway; it has great storage, but not so attractive. My husband convinced me to buy the hat/coat rack as well, which is pretty drab. I've never put the rack up. Now I'm thinking if I paint both a great color (deep red?) it might work in my modern entrance way. The walls are white. Do I paint or spray paint? Thanks. Alice!

Dear Alice, The range of colors you will get in spray is not very large, and we would recommend using a primer and then an enamel paint brushed on anyway to get a good, long lasting finish. If you are careful you will get a really shiny, smooth finish. Anyone have another approach?
