Reclaimed, Pallet Wood Coat Hook and Shelf
Spying some painted pallet scraps on my workbench that were all the same size gave me the idea for this coat hook and shelf. The rustic, reclaimed oak with the bright colors make me smile :).
I took pallet scraps painted in bright colors, cut to the same size (12 inches) and layed them out to determine the length of my coat hook. I then cut two pieces of reclaimed oak to run along the top and bottom of the shelf.
I screwed the long oak pieces in from the back. The short oak "frame pieces on the sides are not structural at all, just for looks.
I added a narrow shelf to the top, screwing it in from the top--a perfect place for keys, sunglasses, photos.
Iron coat hooks painted off white (the rusting occurs naturally) complete the coat hook. Don't forget to paint the screws. I do this after I screw them in so the paint doesn't come off while screwing.
Fun and colorful and oh so useful!
