GUYS! I am redoing my entry way and the first thing I made is this super rad (and inexpensive to make) coat rack/picture ledge. I wanted to add artwork and have a place to hang up our purses and jackets so this was the perfect solution for our small back entry.
I love how it turned out. It looks like something I bought at the store but it was so cheap to make.
I’m obsessed with these knobs. They are so beautiful and I’ve used them in a lot of my other DIY’s. because I can’t get enough of them!
9/64 drill bit
Titebond Wood Glue
1 1/2 in. screws
Cut all your wood the same length. I cut mine to 40″
Measure and mark where you want your shelf to go on the 1×8 using your T-square
Glue your 1×4 on the line where you marked it
Use your wood clamps to clamp it down into place
Wipe off excess glue
Make sure the shelf is straight using your level
While the glue is drying, measure and mark where you want your knobs
Using 9/64 drill bit, drill your pilot holes
Drill your pilot holes into the back of your 1×8 into your shelf (1×4)
Screw your screws into the back to ensure a strong shelf
Glue your 1×2 onto your shelf (1×4)
Clamp it into place making sure the bottom of the 1×2 is even with your shelf
Allow it to dry
Sand your wood making sure you get off all the wood glue
Stain or paint your wood
Screw your knobs into the wood
Hang it up on the wall
And you’re done!
