In any case, they are ideas from which you can create more sophisticated or elaborate pieces if you have more skill, time, or instruments to make them. Let’s do it!.
Create coat racks with wood
If you still don’t have much practice in woodworking, coat racks are a good way to get familiar. Let’s look at some examples.
With a simple rectangular piece of wood, you can make a very nice children’s coat rack. You will only have to sand the wood and paint it in the color you like the most or combine with the room.
To finish, and if you are crafty, paint the animal drawings, they are strokes and always with your back. Take the opportunity to put in the place of their beautiful tails, some hooks that you can paint in the animal’s dominant color, and that’s it.
If you don’t want to paint them, you can opt for animal stickers, there are many designs and types, but remember, they must always be on their back.
Surely when you see this coat rack, you will begin to think about how to customize it. A very, very simple coat rack that we can all make. A branch that you can get from pruning, and two ropes or ropes, depending on the weight you have to maintain.
A simple idea that you can put at the height you want since it is attached to the ceiling with rings. If you want to customize it , you can come up with a simple pulley system to raise or lower it at will.
The Pallets that are the best friends of the craft, first because we recycle and second because they give us a lot of play. In this case, to decorate with furniture with pallets, you practically do not have to do anything with the pallets, just take, order or buy a small pallet and paint each section of wood to your liking. Put some hooks at the height you want, and that’s it.
When you need a coat rack for the entrance, do not hesitate, and instead of going to buy it, create one to your liking. In this case, you only need four round wooden slats.
To make this coat rack, you can do two things, place them and drill at the junction point of all the slats, to insert a pin or, as in the image, put a wide rubber band to hold them together.
If you want to paint a certain color or give them a varnish coat, you can also do it. We like it a little more like that, natural.
