Stocking hanger with added top

Submitted by stamhow on Fri, 12/11/2020 - 20:12

Started built from plan.
My finished product is mostly the same, except I added a little to beef it up. I added decking board size wood for the feet to give it more stability. Santa leaves heavy things in sticking sometimes. I wanted to be prepared! 😁 I made the top 2x4 flush with the top of the sides and added a 1x6 across the top like a shelf. If I get to do it in time, I'm going to add a 1x8 (or 2x8) stained a dark wood color on top and may add a little trim between it and the 1x6 to beef it up. I love it! Might be able to repurpose someway during the rest of the year. Thanks Ana White for the plans!

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
Less than $20 because I had most wood and finishing materials on hand.
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used
I painted it with a gray color satin wall paint I bought from the sample section and after it dried, sanded it up to distress. I then wiped on a Chestnut Minwax stain for a short time and wiped it right off. After that dried I wiped it all over with the Minwax Wipe-on satin polyurethane.
