Coat Racks from Salvaged Wood


A few years ago, I bought a huge pallet of tongue and groove boards that were salvaged from a demolished historic courthouse. Most of it was a beautiful turquoise color that was perfectly chippy, but some boards had little or no paint on them. I've turned so many of those boards into functional coat racks. I love using wood with a 'past' and giving it a future! Here are photos of some that I've made.
