This 28″ piece of 2″x6″ lumber was a leftover scrap from my daughters’ Triple Bunk Bed project, and was just the right size for a new coat rack. I stenciled this lovely flower and vine using this stencil, stained and applied polyurethane on this board.
I decided to look through my stash to see what would work to make hooks for the coat rack. I found these garage door rollers that I had planned on using for the Angels from Repurposed Materials project, but had decided on something else. I had 6 in my stash. I spray painted the metal parts and brush painted the rollers on the end.
Six holes were drilled into the board using a 3/8″ Forstner bit.
Then 2 D-hangers were fastened to the back to mount the coat rack to the wall. The garage door rollers were put into the holes and my husband put tooth lock washers on the ends of the rollers to hold them in place.
After that, the coat rack was ready for use.
Thanks for sharing!!
