My husband came across this coat rack that had a long life at a local church and they were looking to unload. Do you see the potential in it?
Flip your screen upside down and you might start to see it...
First thing we did was remove the hooks and flipped the whole piece upside down. We filled in any cracks or gaps in the wood and cut a board of wainscoting down to size using a circular saw. We glued it on the back and attached it using finishing nails. Then we attached some trim to the top, bottom, and a 2" x 4" across the top where the hooks will go.
Then I put the little ones to work; nothing like some good ole child labor to do a project on the cheap (Just kidding - I did most the painting, but of course they were dying to "help").
The last step was to add some Liberty coat and hat hooks that I bought for $3 each off Amazon and voila!
