This Single-Pallet Coat Rack would be great in an entryway, mudroom, or living room!
First, I cut the middle three slats off the bottom side of a pallet. Next, I added two strips of 2″x 2″ wood in the middle to reinforce the hooks for the backpacks. Then I added small feet on the bottom, on each side of the pallet for more support. This prevents the pallet from tipping over when the kids pull their stuff roughly. I put six hooks into the pallet but may add more in the future as needs change. I spraypainted it a fun blue after sanding down the entire pallet. To finish the look, I finished it with a fine grade sandpaper to add a bit of age.
