Finding new vintage rulers is like hitting the jackpot.
That turquoise one...have mercy!
You may remember my last DIY coat rack here.
Here is one of my DIY's using wood instead of rulers.
And just so we don't leave one out...
The DIY using jute.
I think that covers em...maybe.
So lets do this!
You will need a few rulers (new or old) and one piece of pine.
Cut your pine or old plank into size needed.
I then kinda eyeballed my rulers and cut them to fit.
Don't worry if you can't find vintage because a little stain can fix that right up!
Make sure to add stain to the edge of your rulers.
Liquid nails AKA my best friend!
I just used a squiggle...
After your rulers are dry you can then start attaching your hardware.
I found the hooks at Lowes on the clearance.
This yummy porcelain knob came from Hobby Lobby.
It's that easy ya'll!
Just add a sawtooth hanger on the back and you are ready!
Rule #1 ..
There is no wrong way to make a coat rack.
Think outside of the box for your hangers.
I'm going to display my collection of vintage brushes on this one.
Have you ever made a coat rack?
If so, I would love for you to share it here.
Much love, Susie
