Something to hang you hat on

About This Project

I built this for a friend of a friend. They had seen a similar hall tree on line that ran between $300-$500. It was made of a mix of materials, including mdf and veneer. It was for newlyweds so I did the finishing (something I really hate) and I made the cushion. I had the mirror cut at a local glass shop, and had it cut a bit shorter than how it appeared in the picture they gave me - I was afraid someone would toss somthing onto the cushion and it would end up hitting the mirror.
They seemed happy with it. I hope to get a picture of it in place so that I can add it to my album titled "Look what Gramma made when she could still do things".

Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Type of Wood: 
3/4" Birch plywood (I used PureBond), and birch boards
Finish Used: 
I used 3 coats of Minwax Dark Walnut, 2 coats of rub on polyurethane, satin finish, and then applied a coat of wax and buffed that out.

Very nice!

I was considering making the hall tree for our bathroom and wondering how you stabilized the back without those curvy side supports? I like how yours turned out!

Thanks

It was an easy build and would be really easy to anchor to a wall. I suggested to my clients that they just add anchors to the top piece and screw to the wall there. This is 72" tall. Most people wouldn't even see the anchors. You could also screw through the back from inside the cubbies. It wouldn't budge!
