Every Halloween my sister and mom buy up the discounted costumes at the end of the season. And that's what they give the kids for Christmas. They LOVE these costumes! Sometimes I have a couple kids wear them around for days at a time. We had them stored in giant bins and the kids were always digging through them, tossing them here and there and it was a mess!! So I had an idea for some coat racks. I originally was going to buy hooks, but at more than a buck a piece it was going to be expensive! I was planning on making 3 racks with 7 hooks on each one. So I started thinking of other things I could use instead of hooks. This is what I came up with.
I used some scrap wood from the garage, a few 1x6s. I stained the boards with minwax water based stain in American walnut.
