DIY Hanging Coat Rack

DIY Hanging Coat Rack


Make your room store more with this easy to
build hanging rack. Perfect for purses, scarves and other odds
and ends, this rack is really simple to put together.
Start by laying out the frame. Separate the vertical pieces, called stiles – using 6-inch
spacers, then join them with a horizontal piece, called a rail. Glue and screw the rail
to each stile at both ends. the hooks for the frame start with a simple
block that gets a 45-degree cut at one end. Because you’ll cut four different sizes,
I’d suggest making all the cuts at once, taping the pieces together, and labeling them
– for a fast and easy assembly. for each hook, you’ll flip the end piece
back, so that the grain is running the same way on both pieces…add a little dab of glue,
and give it a quick rub – that little motion makes for an extra strong joint. Use a piece
of tape to hold the pieces in place until they dry.
while the hooks are drying, mark and label the locations on the frame..When the hooks
are ready, add another dab of glue, and rub each hook in place. you can use a piece of
tape to hold them in place while you’re working if you like…..and once they’re
all dry….flip the frame on it’s side and clamp it in place to drive a screw into each
hook – you want it to go through each piece along this line…..the screw just adds that
extra bit of strength and security. add your favorite finish, and hang in your
bedroom, or really any room, for some extra stylish storage. For the detailed directions,
