I made this for a childs room from a pallet. A neighbor gave me her leftover paint so I went with the colors I had on hand (I meant colors that matched his room that I had on hand!). He can hang his jackets, bookbag or whatever on it. It was my first attempt at anything like this and I got my lettering crooked. Lesson learned. The hooks however were not crooked, for some reason they look that way in the picture.

Good looking coat rack. Shows talent and a good eye for color. Keep going. Every step forward is important. Being your own worst critic gives you incentive to always make the next one perfect. Aint going to happen because YOU will always see room for improvement and strive to perfect your art. Art is most often making something interesting out of refuse. You done good.

Very nice. I love things made from reclaimed lumber. How did you achieve the antique look? paint then sand? Keep up the good work.

Nice job, Lisa! With my “doctor’s handwriting” I’d have to use a stencil to get lettering that pretty. How is hung on the wall? Thanks for sharing.

It has those little sawtooth hangers on the back. I dont think he will be hanging anything too heavy on it. I didn’t do the lettering. I printed it off on a laser printer (backward) and mod podged. You can use water and a sponge to leave only the laser letters and take the paper off. Cheating I know. And yes, paint sand, paint sand. I was ok with it for a first attempt. I learned what I could/should have done and thats what its all about!

Jackets are not too heavy. Loaded bookbag…that’s another story. Maybe consider trench cleats for future hangers.
