DIY Coat Rack + Windmill Wall Decor Giveaway

Cue the Pointer Sisters, because I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it! 🙂

I’ve got a DIY coat rack project to show you (which I’m head over heals in love with), I’ve teamed up with the Farmhouse Friends team again this month (you’ll see all their projects below), and we’ve got a giveaway that’ll blow you away (pun totally intended)!  Enter to win at the end of this post!

But first, let me give you the back story on the coat rack…

DIY coat rack made from a repurposed cabinet door -

Four years ago, I brought home a ginormous stack of antique tongue and groove wood that had been removed from a demolished historic courthouse.

I created and sold SO many coat racks with that gorgeous old wood.

In fact, I looked back to see how many I sold, and there were 82 of them.  That’s a lot of coat racks!

By the time I ran out of that wood, I didn’t know if I’d ever want to make another wooden coat rack again, but when I discovered this cabinet door in my junk pile, it reminded me of the wood from the courthouse, so I had to make just one more.

There were seriously only 4 steps to make this coat rack, so anyone can do it!

DIY Coat Rack Instructions

1.  Paint a cabinet door (or regular wood if you don’t have a cabinet door.

2.  Distress the painted door.

3.  Attach coat hooks.

4. Attach hanger hardware.


Our coats are stored away for summer, so I hung mason jars with flowers on it.

DIY Farmhouse Coat Hooks -

So quick, so easy, and so farmhousish, don’t you think? 🙂

This DIY coat rack really is easy enough for anyone to do!

  1. As always…homerun. I think I love the mason jars and books hanging more than I would an actual coat 🙂 SO simple and easy, which I love. I’m so impressed you made and sold so many! Rightfully so!

    I haven’t wanted to win a give away this much in a long time! I’ve been searching for yrs for the perfect metal piece to hang on my living room wall…this is it! And I just finished a remodel last fall with grays, white & beach blues. This is perfect!

  3. Very Cute Angie…love the color and especially how you have styled it!

  4. So sweet! Love it!

  5. Whew! that’s a lot of coat racks. I’m glad you decided to make one more. This one is so pretty! I love the mason jars and books hanging from it. I’m crushing on the color too!

  10. I love the mason jars and books hanging from your coat rack. It’s such a pretty look. I can think of so many places that this piece could be used either functionally or decoratively in a home. It’s no wonder that you’ve sold so many over the years.
