Rustic Entryway Coat Rack


May 16, 2016 by Terry

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 :)

  1. Oh I love it Terry; I just love things that are so rustic! Hope you have a great week! Hugs, Lisa


  2. Always enjoy seeing your clever creations. If it were only as easy for me as it is for you, I would be awash in completed projects instead of redoing mine over and over. God might have shorted me in the DIY skills department, but gave me enough gumption to keep trying.


  3. Love the rustic charm of your coat rack, Terry!

And it’s finished! I ended up having to make the cushion patchwork style. I Think it gives it a little added character though ;-) feels good to finally get one more item off my to do list! Happy Sunday all! #slipcovers #mystyle #shabbychic #pretty #design #homedecor #thecuratorscollection
Working on this sweet slipcover for my antique chair. All that is left is to fashion a cover for the cushion and it will be done! I have been wanting to cover this chair for a while now and it’s nice to finally be able to get to it. Sharing the final results soon. I hope you have an amazing day! #slipcover #sewing #makeover #interiordesign #pretty #thecuratorscollection
Studies say that people who put up their Christmas decorations earlier are happier… I decided to slowly bring things out starting with all my Christmas greenery.

When my aunt passed I promised that I’d always be there for my uncle. Every minute I spend with him makes my heart sing! 💕 it fills my heart with joy to see his eyes light up when I walk into the nursing home to see him. I am so blessed to be able to be back home and closer to him. He’s my #DAD #unconditionallove #dementiasucks #makemyheartsmile #loveyou #caringforyoualways
