A while back I posted about a coat rack I had made from the footboard of an antique bed.
After that sold I decided we still needed extra hooks at our front door so I whipped up another one out of reclaimed barn wood. Completely different in look and feel for sure!
I went out to my wood stash and chose three pieces of beautiful grey wood. After joining the three pieces together from behind, I decided not to trim the ends but rather just leave them as is. They were uneven, jagged and rough and looked rather neat that way. I decided just to smooth everything our with a sander and remove any splinters or sharp ends. I added simple wire hooks so that it didn’t take away from the “art” that is the wood. It turned out so pretty and I love the colour variation of the naturally weathered wood.
These aren’t beautifully staged photos of it as I really didn’t have time due to the fact that I only photographed it on the way out the door to deliver it to it’s new home. I know, I know, it’s like me and dining room tables all over again! … I will build another for us at some point.
This nice rustic coat rack ended up being some lucky lady’s Mother’s Day gift. I hope she enjoys it like I enjoyed creating it :)
