This project started out as a prop and quickly grew into, “hey, this could be a thing.” Why not share my one board DIY wall coat hanger with everyone. Seriously it was so easy it’s almost embarrassing. Get ready to want to make your own. I made two!

Make A Wall Coat Hanger With One Board
Here is all you will need to complete this easy one board wall coat rack.
- 1X10 Board
- Coat Hooks
- VooDoo Gel Stain
- Driftwood (chalk mineral paint)
- Hurricane (chalk mineral paint)
- Spray Bottle
- D Ring Picture Hanger
To begin with, I measured the length of the board that I would work in my space because the traditional wall coat hangers are usually pretty big. I just needed it for a jacket and maybe a ball cap.
I stained both boards with the VooDoo Gel Stain. It’s a water based product and can be used as a stand alone stain or can be used with a water based paint. The second board I got to playing around and did a aged technique with a vinegar/water spray mixture. Read on.
Adding Paint Over The VooDoo Gel Stain
It took the Gel Stain about 30 minutes to dry. You want to allow it to dry before you apply the paint on top of the stain, because we are going to be using a mixture of 50\50 water and vinegar to create an aged look on the board and you don’t want the brown stain to mix with the paint. While the paint was still wet, I sprayed heavily over the whole board. The board will need to be standing on end so that the paint will run in one direction. You can play around do whatever you think will look best. For this project, I stood it on its end.
Applying The Hooks On The Wall Coat Hanger Board
Allow it to dry thoroughly and it’s good to go. No need to use a sealer over the paint because Dixie Belle Paint does not require a sealer. It seals itself after about 30 days of cure time. Now is the time to add your favorite hardware. I found a lot of options on AMAZON and this is what I chose. CLICK HERE to see them.
Adding The Hanger To The Wall Coat Rack
You will need a heavy duty picture hanger to hang your wall coat rack. I like these D Ring Picture Hangers. It’s quick and easy because no one has time for complicated.
Hey, thanks for joining me today. How stinking easy was that? This project was part of a staging that I did with a mud bench makeover. CLICK HERE to see the full staging with the bench. It turned out so good!
