DIY Coat Racks


Making individual coat racks for my kids was easy, inexpensive and the perfect solution for a cluttered entryway.

For this project, I used
3 unfinished wood plaques (6" x 13 1/2")
3 sets of double clothes hooks
6" unfinished wood letters
Valspar Premium Finish spray paint in Satin White
1 1/4" screws, 1" anchors
Drill and 3/16" drill bit
Command picture hanging adhesive strips

First, I drilled holes into the wooden plaques. Using the 3/16" drill bit, I drilled one hole on each side of the plaque that will secure into the wall (mine were about 1/2" from each edge). Then I positioned the hooks where I wanted them and drilled those holes.

I spray painted the wooden plaques and wooden letters and let it dry overnight before adding the second coat.

When the painted dried completely, I screwed the hooks into the plaques.

Finally, I measured and drilled holes into the wall where I wanted the coat racks to go and screwed the coat racks into the wall. (If you are drilling into drywall, use plastic anchors.) Using the Command picture hanging adhesive strips, I attached the letters to the wall. That's it!
