DIY shaker peg and beadboard coat rack

Hello! I hope you’ve got the same gorgeous fall weather we’ve been enjoying here in Pennsylvania.

I have been working fast and furious on some outside projects before the weather turns cold – washing windows, cleaning out the garage and building a storage solution in there, to name a few.

I’ve discovered a ridiculously quick and easy way to get my windows clean and streak-free, which I’ll be sharing in a future post. But today, I wanted to show you what I’m building in the garage.

If your family is anything like ours, winter brings with it the need to hang up lots and lots of coats! We have absolutely zero closets on our ground floor, so I’ve had to get creative with our storage. We have one small coat rack near the front door and another in the laundry room. But these two aren’t cutting the mustard. So now I’m building a mega, coat-rack-of-all-coat-racks next to the entryway in our garage. It’s ultimately going to look something like this:

I’ve actually been meaning to do this project since last fall, but I was missing one important tool – a table saw.


Now that I’ve got this Ryobi® 10-inch portable table saw and my miter and skill saws, I can cut any piece of wood that comes my way. Mwa-ha-ha-ha. 


For this coat rack project, I am using leftover 1×3-inch boards, a piece of plywood for the upper shelf, crown molding, two shaker peg coat racks from this Etsy shop, and a roll of beadboard wallpaper.


Stay tuned for more details on how to do this project, coming soon!

Do you have a problem finding space for all your family’s outwear? Do you have any creative storage solutions that have worked for you?

Special thanks to Ryobi for providing me with the table saw necessary to complete this project. As always, all opinions, projects, and blood, sweat and tears are 100-percent mine.
