Picture of Reclaimed Wood Coat Rack

This coat rack is very easy to make and it's practically FREE!

It's a mix of pallet wood, reclaimed wood and scrap wood.

I did this instructable for the ' Paint It' contest, but was utterly disappointed to find it US ONLY!

Hmmm...well it has pallets so I'm putting it for the pallet contest! Who knows, as they say 'Anything is possible' ;)

Step 1: Collect Your Scrap Wood

Collect any free wood. Scrap wood, broken pallets are perfect for this project!

You would also need

Acrylic paint, wood stain

Enamel paint ( optional...I used it as I had it and wanted that dark chocolate stain)

In pallets you can cut off where there are no nails. Select wood of various thickness. Rip the wood to the width you want. My maximum width was 1.5". Sand all your wood and cut to 10" length. I treated all the wood with wood presavative as I was nervouse about some termite holes.
