This is a coat rack I made from an old piece of beat up pallet wood. I clamped and glued and clamped & glued some more to make sure this old piece of wood would remain sturdy.
The stain is made from steel wool soaked and oxidized in vinegar. I then sealed with a combination of Johnson’s paste wax and a bit of brown and black shoe polishes to add some more pigment and interest.
The hardware was purchased new and sanded before adding some of the shoe polish to give it a weathered distressed look. A very simple project, but it still has a significant amount of labor in it.
