These are a great example of what to do with leftover pieces of wood and trim.
The top rack was made using old cupboard knobs. The natural brown rack was using hand-forged iron hooks from an artisan. The last two used Mexican cast iron hooks left-over from a restaurant project. (I've seen these same hooks on Ebay for $10 a piece. Shop carefully, I got mine for $1.50 a piece in bulk).
The most notable design feature of these is the hanging applique that slides open to reveal a hidden screw. This allows the rack to be secured to the wall and the screws to be hidden.
Coat Racks: Pine, David Douglas Fir, Victorian House trim, Vintage Door Knobs, Cast Iron Hooks, Miller Latex Paint, Spar Varnish.
