I am still on my New Years organizing kick. No end in sight. I’m not only organizing but I’m giving a few areas a bit of a face lift. Since we move so often, if I am in one house for too long I get the itch to change things up. It’s the next best thing to a totally blank canvas. So this time around I am tackling an area in my laundry room. This area is located under my Crib Spring Drying Rack and it once housed my “wash” wall decor. That is now gone and in it’s place is my new DIY Barnwood Coat Rack.
I was really in need of another coat rack, mostly because this house has no coat closet. Read that. No coat closet. I mean, we are in the south so I get it I guess. But it still gets cold here in the winter! We have a little mud porch area on the opposite wall in our laundry room that has a few hooks. However with a family of 4 and kids with a silly number of coats, we needed more!
Luckily I have a little stash of old wood so all I needed were some hooks. Hobby Lobby is pretty much my first stop when I’m looking for cute knobs and hooks. I picked up 6 big beautiful hooks for my coat rack. This was a pretty easy project! Step 1: cut wood to length I want. Step 2: Attach hooks to the wood. Step 3: Add hooks to the back of the coat rack. Step 4: Hand it on the wall.
What’s better than an easy and beautiful project? Nothing that’s what! How fantastic does it look there above this little bench I moved in there?
It looks so pretty right now but let’s face it, in about 5 minutes it will probably be covered in backpacks and jackets! So let’s just sit back and enjoy it while we can, ok?
So what do you think about my new DIY Barnwood Coat Rack?
