About This Project


This was a simple coat rack I decided to make with some random scraps of wood I had from previous projects. The only out of pocket costs for me was the hooks!


I decided to make a kid friendly version as my kids were creating quit the pile of courts and backpacks when they got home from school, mostly because they couldn't reach the adult one! With some left overs, problem solved!!

Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used: 
I used a primer and latex paint!
Estimated Cost: 
10-30 (depends on hooks you choose and scraps of wood you have!)


It's exterior header for a window you see on some homes. Common at a lot of lumber stores. The best part is that it's solid, so no need for complex crown-molding cuts
