Rustic Pallet Coat Rack

Honestly, I was going to take this week off as I have been spending almost every spare minute crafting gifts and creating pallet projects for an upcoming craft fair.  I've been up to my eyeballs in projects, but somehow I managed to squeeze in a quick little project for myself.  

As I was cutting up pallets I came across a perfectly aged and rusticfied (yeah, I think I just made up that word) piece of pallet wood that I couldn't let go.  I knew exactly what I was going to do with the board and within 5 minutes I had myself a new coat rack.

I always rummage through the clearance section at HomeGoods and on one lucky trip a few months ago I found a little coat rack with three hooks.  It was marked down to a few dollars since it was missing some screws.  These are the times that I am thankful for my love of hoarding clearance finds!  

A few screws later and I had a new coat rack that cost me less than $5.00.

Just pretend that the walls are painted, the molding is installed and the floor is finished!  I promise, I'll be working on those projects in the upcoming weeks.  Actually, I've already purchased the temporary floor and have it waiting in the garage.  We just have to install two vents to pass inspection before I can nail down the plywood and lay the new floor.  I'm hoping to work on that this weekend while my husband works on parge coating the garage foundation and possibly coating our garage floor.  We're going bold on the floor with a gray base coat and flecks of white, black and blue.  Stay tuned!
