Recently, I found this modern Coat Rack online that immediately caught my attention and I wanted to make one for our home. It is a minimalist modern abstract tree design that will look very neat near the entryway to hang coats or in the bedroom to hang your clothes. Due to its vertical design its a great space saver if you happen to live in a small apartment or studio. You can either hang it on the wall or even hang directly behind the bedroom door. Its very simple to make and all you need is a jigsaw, power drill and a pair of steady hands.
Here comes the tutorial on how to make your own Vertical Wall mounted tree Coat Hanger.
- 8ft long 2×3 wood – 1 no
- Clear water based PU
- Saw tooth hanger or any wall hanger
- Power Drill
- Sand block
- Paint brush
- Tack Cloth
- Pocket hole jig (optional)
DIY Vertical Wall mounted Coat Hanger
Cost : less than 10$
Skill level : Beginner
All you need is just one 8ft long 2×3 wood. Below cut list will help you.
If you have Mitre & Table saw, then cutting those angles are a breeze. But if you don’t, then its ok too. I made my cuts using only a jigsaw. The cuts may not be very straight, but sanding it down will do the trick.
After cutting the wood, sand (120 grit) them to smooth the edges. Then clean with tack cloth and start to assemble.
Next, drill pocket holes to connect the branch with the vertical. Before that, position the branches alternately and mark the locations. I left 3″ from bottom and kept them at 10.5″ distance alternately on both sides. After pre-drilling, apply wood glue and hold them together tight until its secured to the vertical. Then screw in with 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. If you do not have the pocket hole jig you can drill 2″ screw from the side of the branch at an angle.
Glue the spacers on the rear side of the hanger exactly at 2nd and 5th branch. Then personalize the hanger with any color of your choice. I wanted to do black but unfortunately I had only grey paint on hand. If you like the natural wood finish, then just seal it with clear PU coat before using. Finally, install saw tooth hangers or key hole hanger on the rear side of spacers and add bumpers.
Now the tree hanger is ready to be mounted on wall.
If you want to mount thick winter jackets then I suggest to increase the depth of the spacers. That way you will get more room to hang thick clothes and jackets.
