Our front foyer is part of our home that I want looking extra special. Not only is it the first spot that guests see, but we go in and out the front door a lot of times during the day. We recently gave the foyer a little update and Doug made a new coat rack to add to the other small foyer decorations.

Sometimes just having a place to hold things is half the battle. I know for us, the house stays a lot neater if we have a spot to put everything.

You may remember WAY back when Doug built a desk for me out of the barn wood we were given. Well we still had some pieces left, so he used some of it to build the coat rack. If you don’t have scrap lumber, you can buy a piece of wood and paint it white. I like the chipped paint look, if you are painted a new piece of wood, you can get that look by using sandpaper on it.

Let’s get started building the coat rack…
