With the holiday’s comes company and with the winter brings coats, so why not a cute and functional spot for your guests to hang their coats! We built this handsome guy for about $30 and it was quick and EASY 🙂
The only materials you need for this piece are:
1 4×4 @ 8ft.
1 2×4 @ 10ft.
1 furniture foot
1 scrap piece of 2×6 (approx. 5 1/2″)
1 scrap piece of 1×3 (approx. 16″)
4 pretty hooks
Look at Whit being a good DIY’er and protecting her eyes and lungs with her 3M™ Safety Products! Show off 😉
Then we used our scrap 1×3 to make the feet. We made 4 cuts at 3 1/2″. *You will want these to be cut to the width of your 2×4. Because board widths vary, we suggest that you measure your 2×4 and cut accordingly.
Remember that mark we made on the 4×4? That’s where we are going to line up our legs. This will allow for the thickness of the feet we added. We attached the legs to the 4×4 with Gorilla Glue wood glue and 2 1/2″ Kreg pocket hole screws.
Just pre-drill a shallow hole (a tad smaller than the width of the screw on the furniture foot) and we screwed it into the top of the 2×6 scrap. We did coat the bottom of the furniture foot with wood glue to secure it.
That was it for the building 🙂
We always get asked how we prep our projects before we stain and paint. We always fill our holes with 3M Wood Filler and sand the piece down with our 3M Advanced Abrasives! We put this demo video together for you all just to see how easy it is!
Once the prep work was done, it was time to stain.
To finish, we opted for a fave! We applied one-coat of Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut stain with a foam brush. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then wipe the stain with a clean cloth to even the color out.
Woohoo! What a great, easy and inexpensive DIY! We always appreciate your pins and shares 🙂 Don’t forget, tomorrow is our big Giveaway day. All of the blogs in the 12 Days of Christmas series will be giving away something different and unique to their blogs!
Go visit our talented friends and see what they worked up for Day 12 and tell them the Shanty Sisters said hi 🙂
