Shabby chic coat rack, vintage hook coat rack, how to make a coat rack


Salvage some old coat hooks and create your own upcycled coat rack for a hallway. I used a simple piece of oak as the back plate, however you could get creative and use other reclaimed wood. How about using a piece of driftwood or a section of a vintage wooden crate?

Look out for interesting coat hooks on junk furniture. I salvaged these brass coat hooks from an old dresser unit which a neighbour was sending to the dump. You can also pick up new ‘antique style’ cast iron hooks cheaply online.

Materials
Coat hooks
Wood screws to fit the coat hooks (shorter than the thickness of the back plate)
Wooden back plate with at least one flat side (to fix to the wall)
Screws to fix to the wall
Sandpaper, wood finishing oil, brass polish
Drill

Method
Sand down the wood as needed and rub with wood finishing oil.
Clean up brass hooks with brass polish.

Space out the hooks on to the back plate and mark where the hook screws need to go.
Drill small holes for the hook screws.

Drill several holes in the back plate for attaching to the wall. Position these behind hooks if possible to hide them, countersinking the hole if needed.
Attach the back plate to the wall using suitable screws.
