Reclaimed Barn Wood Coat Hooks

For a while now I’ve had a stash of barn wood planks in my garage. I collected them on a visit to Danville, KY last spring and have been day dreaming of what to make with them ever since. I was happy to leave my small collection in the garage for a few months. I wanted to be sure it was dried out and free of potential bugs etc before I made a move. Occasionally I’d be in the garage working on my furniture or another project and I’d admire the small pile of barn wood. I even Instagrammed about it here and posted on Hilda’s Facebook page about it here. If you don’t love barn wood then we should probably not be friends. I’m enamored.

So one day I was at Home Depot looking for other things when I found these numbered hooks for a steal. Isn’t that always how it always happens? I decided they’s be cool on a couple of my planks so I bought 2 sets.

I spray painted one set white and distressed them for a feminine shabby chic vibe. The other set were spray painted with oil rubbed bronze for a more craftsman feel. Both sets of hooks immediately looked more expensive and had more character. Then I just had to add them to my barn wood.

The hooks came with screws that were much longer, as they are intended to go directly onto the wall. I used shorter (3/4″) screws to attach them to the boards. As you can see below, I was left with very obvious silver screws. Nothing a little craft paint and detail brush couldn’t fix.

Here are my finished coat hooks. I love them! And I love that they both are made with teh same things but each have their own personalities… I like to think they are sisters. *The white set had been sold! And will look fantastic in my friend Erika’s new house.*
