DIY Coat Rack Tutorial

So I don't know about you, but my closet is a mess. I've been working on organizing it for a looong time now (baby steps). So I already figured out how to better organize my tights, but this weekend I needed to figure out how to better organize my scarves. Up until this weekend they were carelessly draped over the doors of my closet, adding clutter to the overall appearance of our room. But this is actually the perfect project for coats, hats, even necklaces!
What you'll need:

(I got a pallet from my work that Jordan disassembled for me. But I'm sure you can go to Home Depot and have it cut to size if you can't find an old pallet.)
Spray Paint
(if the wood is a dark color)
(got mine at ACE)

If you are working with an older, worn piece of wood like I was, I recommend sanding it first before spray painting it. Once the paint is dry use a pencil to mark where you'd like your hooks to go. I did this with the help of a ruler, level and Jordan. He also helped me attach the hooks with screws. I may be crafty....but I'm not the best with tools.

It's that easy! Mine fits perfectly on the back of our bedroom door.  I might make another one for coats to put by to our front door next!


  1. so simple - I love it!

  2. i like. very nice.

  3. love how many ways this could be done (wood with different character, painted, decorative hooks) -- thanks for the inspiration! xo.

  4. very cute! love the hooks!
