DIY Barn Board Coat Rack

Way back when we were tearing down the old barns on the farm, Ryan found this piece of wood and brought it to life as a surprise for me.  I’ve always cherished it since he made it for me.  While I was unpacking, I found it, and was inspired to make it a functional piece for our new home.

I went to IKEA and bought this ‘assembly required’ coat rack for $15 bucks.  I liked the hooks and I couldn’t seem to find decorative hooks any where in a decent size.  So I chucked the wood and keep the hooks.

I measured them even on my barn board and drilled them in.

I picked up the picture hangers from Walmart and attached them to the back for a sturdy hang.
