Upcycled Rustic Coat Rack DIY

A fun & rustic coat rack made from an old piece of barn wood!


I’m all about things that are old & rustic looking.

We originally had a different coat rack near our side door.  We found it at a thrift store & while I liked having the storage, I wasn’t a huge fan of the coat rack itself.  It was a just little too modern for me…
So I deconstructed it & made a new one!

I was working on another project before this (a table that I’ll share soon!) that had old boards on the top that I stained.  I was in love with how much character the old & tired boards had once I put some stain on them.  I now wanted to find all the old boards & stain them!

I knew an old board would be perfect for the back of the coat rack, so I located one!  My husband then cut it to the size I wanted for the coat rack.  Using the old coat rack as a template, we decided to cut the board slightly bigger.

Once the board was cut, I stained it with the color ‘Special Walnut’ (the same I used on the rocking horse seat!)  Once it was dry, I thought the board was still a rough for my liking, so I added a coat of sealer to the top to smooth it out just a bit.

Then it was time to put the hooks on.

I took the hooks off of the old coat rack.  I really liked the hooks on the old coat rack;  I just wasn’t a huge fan of the backing.  Also, coat hooks can be expensive, so I used what I already had!  Once the hooks were removed, it was easy to use the old rack as a template for drilling holes on the new board backing.  We also modified the hook spacing to accommodate for the new board size.

And it was done!  I love it so much more than the old coat rack!  It gives off the rustic vibes I love!
