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 4e22656e 4161 4ea4 97fd 16f5adf71d06

      Cut the 4x4 to 6 feet

    2. Step: 2

      Large 88ff70f1 6ee8 4c4e 9566 16129a58af00

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

    3. Step: 3

      Large 2af1eebc a706 4898 b103 0749045eb1d4

      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 d89333c3 d1d9 40bb 976b b7f2353e1c68

      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 9c068e02 6f18 46c2 accb 85197e4bcfd9

      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 eba22d6f 5a4b 455e aee8 62bd838f3d0b

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

    7. Step: 7

      Large fd195b37 d465 48f7 8f2c fab2e2b26618

      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 7770407e 0b87 4638 bef9 5c483865d157

      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 58c9eb85 a6bd 4a22 b9e7 2eb75ac64bf8

      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 34a2df05 69a4 4b33 9dd9 c055f3e29aa8

      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!
