I've had this hall stand for a while and three of the 'coat pegs' were missing. I found some brass upholstery tacks of the right size (a tad bigger than the original actually but I'm hoping it's not too noticeable - though I'm tempted to replace the original too so they all look identical). I clipped the pointed end off and popped them in the existing holes but they looked very bright compared to the original. I showed it to the OH and he disappeared off to his railway room and came back with this magic stuff which I painted onto the tacks with a brush and wiped off with a damp cloth when it reached the right colour. Worked a treat!
