DIY Rustic Entryway Coat Rack

DIY rustic entryway coat rack - A super simple way to create organization in any size entryway or mud room! A must pin!

Our “entryway”, I put that in quotes because it’s really just a part of our living room, was looking a little bare & the empty space honestly bugging me to no end. I came up with this idea to make a DIY rustic entryway coat rack, & all I needed was to come up with a plan. At first I was going to build the whole thing from scratch, but then I stumbled upon this barn door & I completely changed my plans. This one was going to be larger, & more intense, but that’s how we do it around here so it made sense. Or did it. Anyways, our entryway is looking so much better with this new addition & it’s actually very useful too. Bonus!

Yup, that used to be a barn door. & now it’s hanging in our entryway like a boss holding all our coats up. Well, not all our coats, most are shoved into our hall closet, but this is where we hang coats, scarves, & purses we use daily. Well, Mr. LMB doesn’t carry a purse, but you get the idea.

Like all of my best ideas, this one came to life at night so please excuse my nighttime cell phone photos. You get the point. Ok, so we started with this barn antique barn door that we found. The side pictured is the backside of our coat hanger, because we all know it was too colorful for me, but beautiful none the less. We purchased some wood brackets from Home Depot & attached them to the top of the barn door where we wanted our shelf to be. The wood brackets just screwed right onto the door. On top of the brackets we screwed on some wood boards to make our shelf. After all of the wood was attached we stained the wood parts with dark walnut. The funny thing about the metal coat hooks is that they came off a clearance coat rack I found at Marshalls. I found the coat rack on a whim one day & bought it just for the hardware. A great way to get 5 great hooks for only $8! To hang the coat rack we used metal bar hanging system because we thought it would work the best for how crazy big & heavy this piece is {pictures do not do it justice… it’s huge!} Also this system made it easy to hang with two people, & it allowed us to put stuff on top & add more weight without it budging.

I’m in love this project & how it turned out. I mean a barn door rustic coat hanger? Who knew?! Some things that are bugging me about this space? First: The front door is the only door in the entire house that we didn’t change out when we gutted the house & it needs to go along with that brass door handle. Another thing? I need to spray paint the legs on that chair.. I know, I’ve been saying that for like 8 months now. One of these days it will happen. After looking at these photos, I think that day might be tomorrow. I will probably keep playing around with the styling on our new coat hanger & if I come up with something new, I will blog it & update  you. What do you think of our DIY rustic coat hanger? Do you have something like this in your house? Let me know in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram. xx

  1. Old barn doors have so much character and I love how you give us the idea to look everywhere when we have a project. You decorate beautifully…thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I love your coatrack. It’s such a pretty look with the patina and the shelving, great idea!

  3. I really like this. Inspiration for my laundry/mud room. There’s always a need for cuteness and practicality – even (especially) in the laundry room. Great idea!

    Love this look Liz! It’s just perfect! Thanks for sharing! I’m always so excited to see when you have blogged :)

  5. seriously this is Awesome! I love the look and especially the way you styled the frames etc!

  6. Loving it but adore the love between you and your husband the most :)
    Enjoy this day,
    Alison

  7. Seriously so cute!!!! Great thinking about the coat hooks, I am always looking at things and knowing I can paint and decorate them to my liking, but tearing them apart and using “part” of something, Now THAT is genius! Thanks for always inspiring me ~Kim (oh and you and that ampersand LOL)

  8. It looks so good! I don’t have much of an entryway either. You definitely have more wall space next to the door than I have so your entryway updates really work! Do your guests take their shoes off when they visit? Not sure if it’s just an Asian thing, but it bugs me how there’s no where visually pleasant for my guests to put their shoes!

  9. Love the coatrack. Just L O V E it! I just have to ask this and it’s not about the coatrack.

    Do you have any idea how beautiful you are? I mean, girl, you are drop dead gorgeous. And, Mr. LMB. Well, he ain’t hurtin’ in the least! Together one needs to wear sunglasses to see you two for the glow you send out. Just a damn beautiful couple. There I thunk it and I said it! lol

  10. This is so cute and rustic!! You guys did a great job and it looks so good in that space!

  11. I love how you utilized the space you have & bonus it’s cute & functional ! ! !

  12. Love it! I wish I could do this by my front door, but I have no wall space! I don’t understand how you hung it? Would be interested in knowing more. :)

  13. That looks so amazing! Love it!

  14. New follower!! Found you on IG and it lead me here :)
    Love this coat rack – and really your entire decorating style lady!! I’ve loved going through some of your older posts this week and getting caught up since finding your blog.
    PS I have that purse too – Target right? 😉

  15. I love this!! Your house is so charming. Saw you over at MMS. We made a row of hooks a couple of years ago out of an old mantle. I didn’t use the shelf part because we do have a microscopic entry and I thought it would get knocked. Yours is so pretty!

  16. Wow – what a great idea! Love the styling too xx

  17. Such a good looking and useful addition to your entry! I love the texture with the barn door and those great rugs on the wood floor too.

  18. Love this entryway. Wondering where you got your gorgeous gray chair?

  19. New Follower as well !!.. I am obsessed with this coat rack, I have been on the hunt for the materials now a while !
