Where was this idea a few months ago when I was looking for it? Probably here, and I missed it! You could use pallet slats, they would work just as well as the board used here, and look just as nice once you stain it. I ended up buying a coat rack, but it only holds up to 5 pounds, and my kids are hard on things like this, so I kind of want something sturdier that can withstand their abuse.

We always need extra hanging space in a ton of rooms in my home. I can see making a few of these to put by all the doors in my home. My kids would love one on the back of their door as a place to put their scarves and hats too. Thanks for posting.

You could totally do this with an old ski or an oar too if you want a rustic or vintage look. 3 it!
