So this is the first project my Step Daughter Daija and I did together. She’s a RAD girl and very active, loves to ride skate boards and bikes and play outside. This was her first board she saved up for and bought for herself and it didn’t hold up to the constant abuse most boards go through. She was a little upset so we opted to take a bad thing and make it into a good one by making a trophy and her poor ears having to endure good ole Dad giving advice about all great boarders have broken many throughout their lives. So we took the rest of the broken wheels off and mounted it to some 3/4” MDF. Daija is 1/2 Jamaican but doesn’t get to see her Dad that often since he lives in Florida so she had that great idea to use a Jamaican color scheme with an old FL License plate we had hanging around to make herself a hat rack for her hat collection. In the last picture you’ll see two red “arms” so to speak sticking out on each end.. We decided that the board wasn’t enough space to hang enough of her hats so we opted to extend both sides. We now have to get 8 or 10 more hangers to screw into the extensions and it’ll be ready to mount on her bedroom wall.
After we get the additional hooks, mounted it in her room, and get the hats on it we’ll put up two more pics.
She’s proud of it and I think about ready to get new board for her birthday in July… shhhhhhhh.
Thanks for taking a look at our hat rack!
