Wooden Pallet DIY Children's Coat Rack

I loved my face mask organizer made from pallet wood so much I decided to make something very similar as a kid’s coat rack for my front hall entryway.

Materials Needed

– Pallet Wood – Old Knobs – Wood Varnish – Hanging – Mouse Sander – Drill

Cut your Pallet Wood to Size

I cut my pallet wood to the same size as my face mask organizer 15 x 4.

Drill Holes

Before drilling the holes for them I set some knobs on top of my pallet wood to get a rough idea where I wanted them and measure the distance before drilling my holes. 

Sand your piece of pallet wood down using a mouse sander (the easiest way) or sand paper. Always going in the direction of the grain.


Varnish the Wood

Here is where I have to fess up that this is a shortcut hack version of treating pallet wood for use. In short, I used one coat of wood varnish and nothing else!

 Add Hanging

 Add Hanging

I used a sawtooth hanger for this because I had it already but it isn’t ideal for a coat rack as it is essentially like hanging a picture and so the rack tips a bit.
