DIY Entryway Coat Rack

Hi friends,

This floating shelf coat rack idea was on my mind for a long time to organize our home entry way. When I got this beautiful candle votive as a gift I couldn't find excuses for making it any more (Thank you Chandana). First let me show you the end result.

Supplies Needed:
DIY Entryway Coat Rack

  • 20cm x 6cm wooden plank of 2cm thickness
  • 18cm x 8cm wooden plank of 2cm thickness
  • Wooden casing of your choice (optional)
  • Wood glue
  • 3 of 2inches Dry wall screws
  • 3 Coat hooks
  • Drilling machine
  • 3 of 1inch finishing nails
  • Spray paint of your choice
  • Sand Paper 
  • Pencil to mark
( I got all my wood supplies and screws from Home Depot, Coat hooks and spray paint from Walmart and I had drilling machine on hand.)

Let's get started!

Mark and drill 3 holes on wooden planks as shown. (Don't worry if you have never drilled before, its easy peasy job. Just follow the instructions on your drilling machine.)

Using dry wall screws, screw the two wooden pieces together at the drilled holes.

Take it outdoor and prepare the place for paint. (Cover the place with old sheets or unused carton or garbage covers.) Spray the entire work piece with 2 coats of spray paint. (Follow instructions on your spray paint)

Let the paint dry completely. Space the coat hooks evenly and mark the spots to drill. Now drill and screw the hooks in place.

Put photo frames, small vases or candles on the shelf to decorate it :) I used this beautiful candle votive.
