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

    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.

    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 🙂

    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)

    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!

    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

    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. 🙂

    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!

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
