Make Your Own Coat Rack Out Of Re-Purposed Materials
School is back in session and you may find backpacks and coats lying all over your house. A coat rack could fix that problem….Why not make your own out of re-purposed materials? That way you can make it with as many hangers as you need, and it will fit perfectly with the decor of your home. Here a few easy tips on how its done:
What You Need
Find a wooden board. Re-purposed wood would work great, it could be weathered or even still have some coats of old paint on it. You could either put a clear coat over the old paint or decide to repaint the wood, this really depends on the design of your home and on how much work you would like to put into this particular project. Next, you will need a couple of antique door knobs. They don’t have to match. Use bigger and smaller versions so you’ll be able to hang up book bags, jackets and hats. Use as many as you want that really is determined by the size of your household and, of course, by the size of the board you are planning to use as a base. Make sure to leave plenty of room between the knobs before screwing them into the board. The screws you are using to hold the door knobs on the board should be strong enough to hold a backpack filled with books and school supplies.
