Pallet Coat Rack

My mud room is literally a “mud” room. I had a cheap particle board shelf that I used for shoes, hats, gloves & the dog’s leash but it would collapse on a regular basis. I looked around for something inexpensive to replace the shelf that could also accommodate coats but couldn't find that piece that was “just right”. I decided to take some measurements & build what I was looking for.
My design, with my brother’s tools & know-how, we worked together & this was our result.
This took about 8 free pallets & a few purchased 2x4s. We made a frame out of the 2x4s & then covered all of them with the reclaimed pallet material.
Time: 10 Hours Cost: $25 Difficulty: Medium

    I'm thinking this would be perfect to protect my wall from dart holes

    Did you sand the boards down first before applying oil???

      I didn't sand the boards at all. I just oiled. It took a few days for the oil to be absorbed.
