9 Noticeable Coat Racks to Make

Following on from my first post about doormats, logically, I need a coat stand or rail to hang my guest’s outer-gear on!

I have always loved the idea of owning one of those beautiful ‘old fashioned’ style coat stands, like the ones featured below by 'Better Farm' and 'This Old House' and was so excited when I found sites that detailed how to make one. As soon as I actually get a hall, I will definitely be making one!

I have also found some other amazing alternatives that would do the job-in-hand beautifully. There are a range of options below, which, hopefully, suit your hallway and the permitted space.
