This little seating area is great for putting on shoes and a quiet pet resting place and I love the vintage mould (I think that’s what the chalkboard is hanging on) but you know what? I was ready for a change. Surprise, surprise! haha!
Time to get creative and since we love pipe and wood projects for a bit of a rustic industrial style (see this), those are the materials I used to create a pipe fitting wooden coat rack.
What I used:
- Three 3/8 inch galvanized flanges
- Three 3/8 inch 90 degree elbows
- Three 3/8 inch black caps
- Three 3/8 inch x close steel pipe nipples
- Twelve 3/4 inch sheet metal screws (these fit nicely for securing the flanges to wood)
- RustOleum Universal Metallic spray paint + primer (oil rubbed bronze)
- Scrap 1 x 6 pine board
- RustOleum Ultimate wood stain (Kona)
- RustOleum Ultimate polyurethane
- 2 drywall anchors and screws (to secure to wall)
What I did:
1. I connected my pipe fittings in this order: flange, nipple, elbow, nipple, cap.
2. Then I gave them a few light coats of spray paint and let dry.
3. I cut my scrap pine board to 30 inches.
4. Then sanded the edges smooth and wiped clean.
5. Next using a foam paint brush, I applied the wood stain and let it sit for a couple of minutes. You’ll want to wear gloves!
6. Then wiped away the stain with an old rag and let it dry.
7. After about an hour, I brushed on the polyurethane and let it dry according to manufacturer’s instructions.
8. Once everything was dry, I secured the first pipe hook to the center of my wood plank. Then secured the other two.
9. I attached it to the wall using drywall anchors and screws.
Perfect for hanging jackets, the dog’s leash, or my tote bag.
