DIY Vintage Ruler Coat Rack

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...

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.

Rule #2..

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

    Oh Susie, this is GORGEOUS!! And you are right, it's so hard to find old rulers. I intended to make a coat rack out of the top of an old door frame but the knobs I used were too pretty to cover up so I use it to hang my scarves! You can see it here:
    I truly look forward to your posts everyday, you rock!!

    Mail for Mac
    save your computers from ransomeware

    As a matter of first importance, when comparing Mac Outlook vs Apple Mail, Mac Outlook is a paid email program
    from Microsoft which you can purchase as a sole application or as a subscription service known as Office 365.
    On the other hand, Apple Mail is the default application that that accompanies with every Mac system and it is free.
    Thus, if you have already Mac Outlook, then you can also use Mac Mail anyhow. Because both email clients have their
    own advantages and disadvantages.

So when it comes to Herve Leger, Dirndl Dress for me it’s really about A-line dresses because it gives me a hip but minimizes me on the top.”While there’s no doubt that Lubov and her husband, Max, design for women everywhere, you can’t help but imagine her stamping Halloween costumes a mini-claim on a certain white dress and capelet pair when it was in its early stages. It’s a look we can imagine every woman instantly coveting when it’s available in April.
