How to Make a DIY Coat Rack Wall With Beadboard Wallpaper & Hooks

Adhering the beadboard wallpaper

1. Attach wallpaper and paint

The beadboard wallpaper was easy to put up. Since it’s paintable wallpaper, we painted it the same color as the rest of the walls.

2. Add board and lattice

We installed a 1x3” board on top to look like wainscoting and lattice trim on the sides, all painted white.
