DIY Rustic/ Industrial Coat Rack

Another busy week for me between trying to find a new car, school and remodeling our kitchen it is crazy here! I did have a few seconds to finish one of my projects that I started a couple weeks ago! My husband and I mad a bet a few years ago at a garage sale that he wouldn't be able to buy this bamboo chair for 5 bucks, I think it was priced at like $25! Well he did it and I lost the bet and we were now stuck with an old rickety bamboo chair that looked something like this except super sun faded.
So here we are two years later with a super uncomfortable bamboo chair on our back patio that our lovely fur-babies have chewed on! My hoarding self finally decided it was time for the chair to go but I kept all of the slats!! 
Next I had a coat rack from hobby lobby that I had in our master bathroom to hold towels but it was not working there for me! You can see what I put there instead here. 
Here is how I put it together 
First I put all the boards together by putting a 2 boards behind them and then screwing them into the 2 boards. After that  I put two screws where the coat hanger would hang off of it. 
Here it is on the wall! Eventually this wall will be all the lighter color but I made it striped for now so that the color from the kitchen wasn't such an eye soar!
 Also here is the awkward wall that it is on! Somedays I don't know if I love it or hate it lol This is the opening from the living room into the dining room.
 What do you guys think of this coat hanger? It comes in pretty handy because our coat closet is down the hallway!  Hope you guys have a great Wednesday!


  1. This is so cute! I've seen so many great ideas for DIY coat racks, so I will definitely be making my own instead of buying one. I love how you combined two of my favorite looks: rustic and industrial. Thanks for sharing this tutorial with Hump Day Happenings!

  2. I love this! The rustic wood with the metal hangers is absolutely perfect. (I love your purse too!) Thank you for sharing at the Creative Inspiration Link Party. Join us again next week, M 8p CST - W 8p CST.
