A DIY Coat Rack never looked so sweet!

A few weeks ago I created a DIY Plant Stand that was originally supposed to be a coat rack, so I figured I would show you guys what it was really intended to be.

This review is sponsored by the Home Depot as a part of The Home Depot's Pro-Spective Campaign. 

DIY Coat Rack for the home entryway

This project was really simple because I already had the frame build from my plant stand project. Check it out Here. When I posted the unfinished frame on Instagram everyone liked the idea of a plant stand and I loved it too, but I also wanted to see how it would look as the coat rack that it was originally intended for. But here is a quick look at the plant stand!

To transform the project I used my Makita Impact Gold #2 Phillips 2 in. Power Bit (2 Per Pack) set to add on my Coat Rack Hooks. These Makita gold bits last up to 60 times longer than a regular bit and are designed for high-torque impact drivers. It also flexes to help decrease tip pressure and increase durability.

    The thing I love most about this build is the fact that it can be used for two things, I mean what more could you ask for. One plan, two projects! Let's take one final look!
