Coat Hanger

Got some scrap lumber from a construction site down the street. Bought a few hooks from the local hardware store. Kreg Jig'd it all together. White washed using a 50/50 paint/water mix following the grain, then wiping it with paper towel using the same technique.

The shoe box was made out of lumber from Home Depot. same deal with the white wash stain.

Step 1:

Made the cuts so that the 3 long pieces were exactly the same length, and the two side pieces were scrap.

Then used a Kreg Jig to put them all together, strategically hiding the screws from sight.

Here's what it looked like sanded with no stain.

Step 2:

after i stained it, i decided to test fit before adding mounting hardware. Just used some L brackets that i painted white. Also, used some longer screws on the metal hooks to add some extra security.
