Design, DIY

the one about a DIY coat rack

Over on my craft spot last week, I showed one of my favorite recent DIY projects in a while. I love it so much I had to show you guys over here too. My house has 1 coat closet at the entry and then you either go directly to the kitchen or directly to the living area which includes our formal dining area. So I needed a functional but stylish area to work as a foyer. A foyer for us is just a place to throw our coats, my purse, our keys, and a scarf or two. So this DIY coat rack was my solution . . .


This project we got done for $30 – I could have gone cheaper, but I really wanted the crystal hooks and they were $6 – and in 1 hour! My favorite kind. Inexpensive and fast. The crystal hooks, the coat hooks, and oak 2×4 – stained with leftover Rustoleum Kona stain – came from Lowe’s Hardware.
Once it was up and ready I needed some things to style it and make it a chic area that blended in well with that area of our house. Here’s that rundown –

Mirror (always need to check your lipstick before you walk out) . Target
Cream bin (for gloves and hats) . Target
Bench (for shoes) . Target
Pillows (for style) . on bench pillows covers from elemeno pillows on etsy
Blue chair (for putting on shoes) . thrifted and painted Blue Sea by Rustoluem
Ampersand Pillow . thrifted at Goodwill

There’s the rundownof my new favorite area in the house – you know that will change after the next project as it always does 😉 Maybe one day I sit down and think really long and hard and decide what my favorite spot really is (it’s the kitchen).

Do you have any DIY projects going on – or restyles of the stuff you already have?

    What a cute and EASY project! We have a similar issue with coat storage space (like, half of the coats are in my kids’ closet!!)
