Why thank you!
You might remember that some time ago I made this cute coat rack for a sweet little girl turning one.
It was fun to make and nice to give.
I also made this little rack for my nephew, who's name might start with B.
And then before Christmas I was asked to make these racks. My first custom order!
I've been wanting to make a large coat rack for the boys room for some time, and was able to finally finish it over the holidays! I really like making these racks. I like the process of cutting the wood, using the router, sanding, priming, sanding, painting, sanding, painting, sanding...well the sanding gets a bit tiresome. The best part is putting on the hooks. Hooks are very expensive, the ones I used on the boys rack cost more than $12 each. No wonder racks are so expensive! I am always on the lookout for interesting hooks or knobs to use. If you know of any, please link me up!
They used to have a tiny novelty rack, with hooks that hardly held anything.
Bags kept falling off it. But this new rack holds lots and lots!
I took some stuff off so that you can get a better look.
I was so excited to get this on the wall I took photos before sweeping up the dust from installing it!
I also managed to get these shelves on the wall....well, I supervised Mr BC putting these shelves on the wall.
Making them was a joint effort, I routered the shelf part, Mr BC made the corbel part with a jigsaw and sander, then I got them back for sanding and painting. Team work, people!!
They give the boys just enough space for a book, a book light, a few special toys. Their room is so tiny it is a really practical idea and nice for them to have a little nook they don't have to share.
What storage solutions do you use in tiny bedrooms? Do you have any projects on the go?
