Rated 4 out of 5 by mindar I thought the hooks would be more sleek in design. The paint makes them a little more rustic than I hoped, but they still look great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kg25 love the way this hook looks (off white, slightly rubbed off the metal) but it is pretty lame that it does not come with hanging screws

Rated 4 out of 5 by LSChip Color varies
These hooks are adorable, perfectly sized, and great quality. The only problem I've had is that the color varies a lot from letter to letter. For example, I ordered D-R-Y for my laundry room. The "D" arrived much darker (like a stone color) than the other two letters (which were off-white). I thought maybe it was a one-time variation, so Anthropologie kindly sent me another one with free shipping. The second "D" arrived with the same color, so I realize it's just the way they are designed to have a flea market appeal.
I wish they all matched, but the overall look is still great. The slightly worn finish has a nice vintage quality without looking cheap. I plan to still use them, and just coat with a clear satin Rustoleum spray to protect against water in that room since they are iron.
Also, the hooks have three holes each to mount to a wall, but they don't come with hardware so be prepared to seek out some screws. They aren't too heavy so I think they will mount easily. All in all, a great find, but don't expect them to match perfectly.
