How to Make a Hanger Coat Rack

Create a customized coat rack for your entry with pretty wood hangers in three short steps.

What You Need

  • 4 wood hangers
  • Backer board
  • Screws
  • Screwdriver
  • Heavy-duty picture hangers

How to Make It

  1. Shorten 4 new or vintage wood hangers, cutting a straight edge that will fit tight against a backer board. We used a 1-4-30-inch varnished maple plank.
  2. Attach the shortened hangers to the board by screwing them in from behind.
  3. Add heavy-duty picture hangers to the back of the board so you can mount the unit on the wall.
