Our shutter coat rack

The other day when I was browsing Pinterest I found coat rack crafted out of an old shutter. That gave me the inspiration to share with you my coat rack crafted out of an old shutter. When my husband was little he had a shutter coat rack that we inherited when his family moved out of the farm he grew up on. That is somewhere in our storage mess, but this one he made himself. What I love most about our coat rack is that Jonathan used parts of old chair legs as the hangers. We repurpose and reuse.

Update: Attach any hooks to the shutter easily. What Jonathan did was drill holes in the shutter and  inserted shortened legs from broken chairs. All items you can pick up for free along the side of the road!

  2. This is perfect! I love it!
    Shutters are amazing and you've found such a great treasure in this useful shutter idea!
    I love the colour too and the shabbiness of it.
