Coat Rack For The Laundry Room

I really liked the coat rack we had in our oldest daughter's room at the last house and it had some nice bronze hooks on it. Before we put our house on the market, we swapped it out with one that was made out of reclaimed wood from our mountain cottage and some inexpensive hooks. You can see that post HERE if you missed it. 

It looked great painted black back in the other house, but the dark paint didn't look so good in the laundry room at our new house. 

We took it down and painted the laundry room and I gave the board(which is a 30" drawer front) a couple of coats of white paint that we had in the garage. 

I distressed the edges just a little bit and Mr. DIY hung it back on the wall.

It turned out great and looks nice against the newly painted wall.

The new paint is Sherwin Williams Silver Strand cut by 25%. In person, it's actually bluer, but in the pic it looks green.

We're still working on the laundry room. So far, Mr. DIY has added cabinets, new can lights and put up the coat rack. We're adding a farmhouse light over the sink  and Mr. DIY really wants to install a wood countertop and change out the plastic laundry tub with a simple open cabinet and  a drop in sink. It's always something! I'm just happy it's painted and it's really bright with the new can lights.

Stay tuned!

Hope today is a good day for you.



  1. It does look great on that wall! Love the new look. I miss the Paris Market!! :(

  2. It's easy to create a designated space for your coats and hats if you put your mind to it. AS you can see, some hooks are all there is to it!

    1. I love hook racks and could have them in nearly every room in the house!
