Christmas is in full force here. Did you see our Christmas mantel?! I’m cuddled in front of it under a blanket as I write this. Fireplace on. Warm tea beside me. Perfection. But I’m taking a break from these lovely inspiring Christmas posts to share a super simple DIY build plan with you! Waaaaay back when we renovated our guest bedroom, we had dreams of building a coat rack for them. Well…we finally got our butts in gear and did it! You won’t believe the little secret we used to make those hooks!

The Industrial Coat Rack

We put this piece in our guest room, but it would look perfect in a front entryway (if only we had the space!) or a mudroom too. We wanted something sleek that still gave off an industrial vibe—so we combined wood and steel into the perfect coat rack! I used a dark walnut stain by Minwax for the wood and a gloss black spray paint for the metal. I LOVE the combination of that beautiful stain against the black metal!

Great for a spare bedroom or front hall!

We thought about adding a shelf to this piece, but decided instead to slip a mail slot into the back. It’s hidden, but still functional. The perfect place to set down your paperwork.

I teamed up with Kreg Tool Company and Build Something to bring you these great free build plans.

Build Something is the DIY project site from Kreg Tool Company where they share great DIY build projects. I guarantee that you will be inspired to build when you visit the site!

The hooks are the best part. We actually just made pocket holes with our jig and glued the pipe right into the holes! Genius! I know!

The hooks are modern and so easy to fit in on the industrial chic coat rack

What a great idea to create a mail slot. You can put even a document folder there and you'll never forget it at home. Thank you for inspiring! :)
