With winter coming early, we’ve brought out every jacket, vest, and coat. Then with the backpacks, we have a hook shortage, which has become a problem, because we’ve been getting piles of coats on the ground right under the coat rack.
I wanted a big rustic coat rack, with more hooks and space than we would ever need. We started with a big 6 foot piece of wood that is about a foot wide, and an inch thick. To make it look rustic, I put a walnut stain on the wood, and let it dry.
From there I sprayed a satin white paint on it.
It’s important to let it dry, then take a palm sander, and just sand down a little so you can get the colors to show through.
We just added the hooks, then found studs, and used a counter sink to put it on the wall.
This is what we were suffering with before.
I think this will help our laundry room stay a little bit more tidy. Now if I can do something about them dropping their coats, backpacks, and shoes on the floor right as they walk in the door!
