With the cold winter season comes cold winter jackets, so why not have a cute and functional spot for your guests to hang their coats!? We built this handsome guy for about $30 and it was quick and EASY.

  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Large ce7a1d00 b3ee 4e8e b475 40d200bba845

      Cut the 4x4 to 6 feet

    2. Step: 2

      Large a07e29cd ed90 46e6 907a b88dad2118e4

      Time to cut the legs. Cut 4 pieces of 2x4 at 45 degrees to 13 ½ in.

    3. Step: 3

      Large 2f852de9 0755 45bc adda 5cc886889749

      Use your scrap 1x3 to make the feet. Make 4 cuts at 3 ½ in. Note: you want these cuts to be the width of your 2x4. Because a board’s width may vary, we suggest you measure your 2x4 and cut accordingly.

    4. Step: 4

      Large 38f77436 46a3 489f 95ae e60d55dc24e8

      Before we attach the feet, we laid a foot on the end of the 4x4 (flush with the bottom) and marked the spot on the 4x4. Do this to all four sides.

    5. Step: 5

      Large 818fa9d4 06fe 45bd a8a6 9e844a5094a9

      Assemble the feet using wood glue and a RYOBI AirStrike nailer. Attach the 1x3 to the miter end of the 2x4’s. The edges will be flush.

    6. Step: 6

      Large 36a2eed6 f2c4 4e08 b81e 202dfde0e49b

      Use a jig to drill 2 -1 ½” pocket holes on the straight end of each leg.

    7. Step: 7

      Large 7c5643d3 15dc 44fe 94d0 d9ee3678ac5d

      Using the mark we made on the 4x4 earlier, line up the legs with the line and attach using wood glue and 2 – 1 ½” pocket hole screws. Attach the remaining three legs to the 4x4 the same way.

    8. Step: 8

      Large 43f64e62 8880 4336 96d0 2a8ef767b2c6

      Cut 4 pieces of 2x4 with both ends at 45 degrees to 13” long (long point to long point). Attach them to the body of the legs using wood glue and our RYOBI AirStrike.

    9. Step: 9

      Large 3f598d77 0960 4f10 9daa f16f3f808aff

      Cut a piece of 2x6 to 5 ½” to form a square. Attach it to the top of the coat rack with wood glue and 2- 2 1/2” wood screws.

    10. Step: 10

      Large 4c7da168 7792 467f a531 f7dfe0639526

      Finish the top off with a furniture leg. To attach, first pre-drill a shallow hole and fasten with a screw. We also used wood glue to secure it.

  • In the materials used, there's a scrap 1x6 listed. In the instructions, it's a 1x3. Should the piece be 1x3 or 1x6? Thank you!
