"Shiplap + coat Rack = a whole lot of style"

"This review is sponsored by the Home Depot as a part of The Home Depot's Pro-Spective Campaign."
Normally, I am used to building bigger projects but today I completed a super simple project for my home; a DIY Shiplap Coat Rack. Very rarely do I get to make things for myself so I was excited to knock this quick project out today.

But before we get into it, let's talk about this hardware. I have been seeing this hooks everywhere and I have always loved the look of them. I finally got my hand on some and I am happy to be incorporating it into todays build.

Rustoleum Chalk Paint - Linen White
4 - Hooks

3 - 1x3 @ 3ft
2 - 1x3 @ 9 1/4"
2 - 1x3 @ 37"
3 - 1x2 @ 8 1/4"
Now let's get to it!
I first cut the three 1x3s down to 3 feet and attached them together with 1x2s. I used nickels in between each 1x3board to get the correct amount of spacing between the two.

Once I had everything all spaced out, I used my Ryobi brad nailer to nail the boards together. I made sure to nail on the back side so that the front would be clear of nail holes.

Once I nailed the boards together, I first coated the wood with Varathane Briarsmoke and let it dry and then coated the coat rack with Rustoleum Chalked Paint in Linen White. I love using chalk paint because it dries so much faster but feel free to use regular paint for a cheaper alternative.

Once the chalk paint was all dry, I used my Ryobi Cornet Cat sander to sand off the corners to give the coat rack a more rustic look. I used 80-grit sandpaper and lightly sanded the corners.

After creating the rustic look, I added the outer trim to the coat rack to give it a defined look and the base of the shiplap coat rack was complete.

Once the base was complete, it was time to add the hardware. This was my favorite step because I got to try out a new tool on this project; the Dremel Cordless Screwdriver. If you are used to using a regular screwdriver, I can assure you that this little tool will bring you much joy.

This Dremel Go Cordless Screwdriver is four times more powerful than any existing screwdriver with the same size and form and has an intuitive operation style that allows you to drive screws with just a push. It's intelligent e-clutch stopes when you want it to stop and it also will retract screws. It comes packed with a usb charger and insert bits to fit any kind of tip you may need.

After adding the hardware, my coat rack was complete and ready to be hung. This quick and easy project was a great way to add some character to my entryway and an easy way to create a place for people to hang their belongings when they walk in.

I really love the rustic look of the shiplap coat rack and these hooks are to die for. I think I made a winner.
