coat rack refab project
We found an old coat rack in a pile of wood in our barn. The vanish was dried up and coming off and a hook was broke. It had beautiful hooks, some broken. See how you can give an old coat rack life again with a little paint.
What you’ll need:
paint for board
paint for hooks (possibly new hooks)
Start by removing all the hooks from the board. We had one screw that would not come out. I left it in and painted around it.
Sand the board to remove the previous finish. I only needed to use light sanding paper. You may need to use a more aggressive paper. Be sure it is smooth for paint. Wipe down with a cloth if needed also.
Paint the hooks. I used a black spray paint. Allow to dry over night. I also painted the screws to match.
Paint the board and allow to dry.
Put the hooks back on the board.
You can drill holes if needed to hang on the wall.
