DIY a Pottery Barn Kids inspired Coat tree out of off the shelf supplies! A simple stair newels, some shelf brackets and hooks can make a cute Coat tree!
And that's my Pinterest Challenge. I'm linked up over at Young House Love and you can enter too. Thanks Sherry and Katie for hosting, how fun! Really enjoyed this challenge!
1 - 48" Stair Newel
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Next up, attach hardware to top of stair newel by measuring and placing hooks around all four sides. My coat hooks were on clearance for $2 a hook.
I found my hooks were a little on the big side, so you may wish to choose smaller hooks.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
