Pallet Coat Rack

$25
10 Hours
Medium

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.
The finished product.  I used a paint brush to apply a mineral oil, to bring out the natural colors & help protect it.
