DIY Faucet Handle Coat Rack

gfhdh

We love this upcycled coat rack using old faucet handles and reclaimed wood. Cool idea and easy to make!

Materials and Tools:

  • a piece of reclaimed fence wood 1″x8″, about 24″ long, and any 1″x8″ wood piece will work here
  • old faucet handles. I got some on Ebay. You can also find some new ones at Home-depot. Paint them a different color if you’d like!
  • masking tape, Exacto knife, and paint if you want to add some design elements
  • 5/8″ wool dowel, screws, washers, keyhole hangers with matching screws
  • drill,  hand saw or power tool to cut the dowel
