Introduction: Branch Coatrack
How to make a hanging coatrack out of a branch.
You will need:
1 big branch
spray paint in desired colour
2 pieces of chain in desired colour
2 ceiling hooks
2 wall plugs
Step 1: Preparing the Branch
Prepare your branch by cutting off the bark. We used a Swiss army knife for this. Then cut the branch to the desired length using a handsaw.
Spray paint the resulting naked branches in the desired colour. It will take about three coats to achieve an even finish.
Step 2: Wrap the Chain Around the Branch
Next we placed two white chains about 15 cm inwards from both ends of the branch. It was important to wrap the chains around the branch at least twice to keep them secure in their place.
Step 3: Fasten Coatrack Onto Ceiling
To fasten the construction onto the ceiling, we installed two simple white hooks. First drill two small holes in the ceiling where the coatrack should be hung. Then use a hammer to insert a wall plug into each hole. Now you can screw in the hooks by hand. Finally, hang the chains on the hooks in the desired height.
