DIY Easy Rustic Hook Rack. $20 and 20 Minutes it all it takes to create these adorable hook racks that look like old barn wood!
DIY Easy Rustic Hook Rack
I shared this post a few months ago on The Pinning Mama as one of my posts as a contributor and am now sharing it here in case you missed it. It’s so easy but it’s one of my favorite DIYs because you can easily alter it to fit your style, it’s inexpensive, and it’s so much cuter than most standard hook racks you’ll find in the store.
I love how Weathered Grey stain makes new wood look like old barn wood!
- 1″ x 6″ piece of wood, cut to 24″ long (or however long you want your rack to be)
- Weathered Gray Stain (I used Rust-Oleum)
- Rag (to stain with)
- Rubber Gloves (optional but nice to keep the stain off your hands. It’s really hard to get off. Ask me how I know!)
- Four Hooks (these cute heart hooks were $2 each at World Market)
- Four ¾” screws
- Two Triangle Hangers
- Two ½” screws
I gathered all my supplies and the drilled in two triangle hangers on the backside of my board using the ½” screws.
I used a rag to apply one coat of stain to the boards (I made two of these). So pretty, right?
I left wood to dry for several hours and then measured to evenly space my hooks. I drilled them in with the ¾” screws.
Brand new but with a rustic vintage-y vibe! We have two hanging behind our front door for all the kid’s book bags and coats. I keep meaning to make a few more for my closet too.
