Handmade Reclaimed Pallet Wood Coat Rack

Pallet wood has such a great patina. Grey and weathered and full of character. This coat rack takes advantage of that while still giving an elegant, smooth finish.

The rack is 29 1/2" long and 4 1/2" wide. I hand planed and sanded it to remove the roughness that all pallet wood has while retaining its unique character. Then I added three new hammered metal hooks, spaced far enough apart to accomodate even the largest coats and hats.

This would look great in any entry. The grey coloring of the wood shows through the light natural wood color. The rack is finished with only a simple coat of shellac, so it will weather and become more unique as time goes on.
