Scrap Wood Coat Rack

Hello again! The project I’m sharing with you today is a simple one, but one that turned out pretty cool.

I started with scrap wood of different sizes and arranged them in a random order.

Next, I gathered different shades of wood stain and went to work staining each piece of wood a different color.

Once the stains dried, I used my Kreg drill and wood glue to attach the wood pieces together.

I added a “Welcome” plaque and metal hooks I also had stashed away.

There you have it. A one of a kind coat rack for your entryway. I made another one similar to this and they are now in my booth at the Antique Mall.

Salvage Bead Board Coat Rack

bead board coat rackOne good thing about locking yourself out of your car… at home, is you can’t go anywhere. And you get to play in the garage all day. 🙂

I have several projects going at the moment. All to put in my booth. The first one I completed today was a coat rack made from salvage bead board.

I picked up two slats of bead board at an antique store last week. $2.00 each. They were a pretty distressed blue. All I had to do was wipe them down and they were good to go.

I cut the boards in 6 inch pieces, then put them together, tongue and groove.

On the back side I attached a piece of leftover wood with glue and screws for support. Across the top of the coat rack at stained a piece of wood and attached it to the top. Gives it a finished look.

The hooks and knobs are a combination of new and old hardware.

It will be in my booth soon. 🙂

Old Sewing Machine Table turned Coat Rack

After removing the legs, I unscrewed the hinges that held the drop down drawer. Once the drawer was off, all that was left was the “pretty” front frame.

It sold the first month I had it back in the booth. Now I’m working on a project using the sewing table legs. Stayed tuned…
