Scrap Wood

We needed a coat rack.  I priced them out and thought the prices were a little out of control.  So what did I do, suck it up and just buy one like normal humans?   No!!  I thought, (now stop me if you've heard this one before) "I can totally make that!"

 I told Ed that I was going to look around the house to see what I could come up with.  This is the point that he should have said, "let's just buy it."  But, my wonderful husband, with his need to feed my obsession of trying so hard to craft, just said, "okay".

I literally stared out the window several times looking around the yard to see what was available to use.  Remember that refrigerator that broke in the summer?  Well, we did not get rid of it, so I used the produce baskets for boot baskets.

So much frustration.  And one tiny little tantrum later, I'm almost done.

I'm not done with it, but thought I would post what I came up with.  The total of this project was $4.69, the cost of the hooks to hang the baskets.  Oh, and I still need to go buy hooks for the coats.
