Fence rail coat rack

Our local Hobby Lobby marked their spring line down 80% and I could not resist.  These bird hooks were under a dollar.  Hubby and I shortened a red fence and had some rails left and this was the perfect opportunity to mix some new with the old.

So I gathered up some basic supplies...The bird hooks...some old screws , sand paper, paste wax , rail fence board , tape measure and Drill. 

I lightly sanded the fence rail and then buffed on a nice coat of paste wax.  I determined where I wanted the bird hooks to go....somewhat centered and equal distances apart.  I pre drilled the holes than attached them with screws that had rusty heads.  This was a simple yet rewarding project...

Thanks for stopping by!
