DIY: Wall Coat Rack

It’s high time to dig out the toolbox again! Today there is a DIY for making your own wardrobe rack.

Do you know the problems of too many scarves, too little space for bags or too little storage space for winter coats in summer and for summer things in winter? I just needed more cloakroom space. And after I came across these cute squirrel hangers in a shop, I couldn’t leave them lying around anyway. So let’s start with the tutorial make your own wardrobe rack. Without sawing and without danger.

What You Need

  • 5 nice hangers
  • 3 fastening hooks with small nails
  • 1 wooden board
  • Wood varnish
  • Paint roller
  • pencil
  • Screws for the hanger
  • Cordless screwdriver / screwdriver
  • 3 dowels and matching screws

First of all, of course, you have to find nice hangers:

There are really many furniture stores or flea market stalls where you can get beautiful wall hooks.

Then you just go to the hardware store and buy a simple, untreated, light-colored wooden board. Mine was 15cm x 70cm.

I used a light blue, non-glossy wood varnish for coloring. Carefully and neatly apply a layer of paint with a paint roller. I only left it with one layer so that the structure of the wood still shines through nicely. You can of course also dye it opaque. If you don’t have untreated wood, you should degrease it first and smoothen it well with sandpaper before painting the board. Let the board dry for a few hours to a day. Depending on how many layers of paint you apply.

Then the positions for the coat hooks on the front are determined and marked with a pencil. Then immediately determine the position of the fastening hooks on the back. Be careful that they are invisible after hanging, but rather disappear behind the board.

And now you can attach the hooks on the back. Then screw the hangers on the front.

Your own self-made, individual wall coat rack is ready!

Don’t screw yourself up in your leg!
