A porch post and some wood shelving corbels makes this kids coat rack is one of the easiest project I have seen.  It truly makes a child sized coat rack out of a few simple items.  Place the coat rack by the back door or in the bedroom for hanging school clothes for the next day on!  If you make one, submit your photo to us so we can feature your project!

Materials Needed:

wood porch post

porch post cap

4 wood corbels

4 coat hooks (and their coordinating screws)


construction adhesive



water-based primer

water-based latex paint

Cut Porch Post

Cut down a porch post from the home improvement store so it measures four feet tall. Tip: If you don’t have a saw at home, have the post cut to size at the store.
