I finally got to use some of the vintage drawer pulls and hooks I have been collecting for a while. The need for more places to hang coats in our entryway resulted in this simple vintage coat hanger project.
This Vintage Coat Hanger Project was very simple to complete and I love being able to have these hooks on display. I got most of these hooks and knobs at Simply Primitive a home decor store in my area.
Wood – I used a 8 ft x 7in x 1in peice
10 Vintage knobs, hangers or drawer pulls
Wood Stain (any color you want)
- Cut the wood to desired length. I got mine cut when I bought it at the hardware store.
- Sand down the edges and the rough spots with sand paper.
- Stain the wood your desired color. I used Minwax Polyshades in Natural Cherry. Polyshades have the polyurethane in the stain so its perfect for this project. Sponge on in long strokes to avoid layer lines.
- I did 3 coats of the stain/poly then let it dry for 24 hours.
- I measured for the positions of the hooks and knobs.
- Drill the holes for the knobs with an electric drill.
- Attach the knobs. if they are not flush with the back of the board break off the end or grind off the backs with a grinder.
- Then attach the board to the wall making sure to attach it to the studs.
- and Voila! you are done.
Some of the vintage hooks needed a little care. I used Gold Metallic Spray Paint and gave them a quick couple coats, Just to make them flow a little better with the color scheme.
