    I found an old wood window plane in my neighbors trash. And I figured I’d do something with it. So I took it home yesterday and today I turned it into a hat and coat rack. I cleaned the whole thing up and removed the top window latch and the handle and then sanded the whole thing. I then screwed in the hooks, taped the bird print in the back and nailed in picture hangers in the back. Here’s some before and after pictures:

    My girlfriend just made her second one of those. I’ll get a photo of it soon.

    We have one up in the house and will sell the second one. Didn’t think to put a print behind it though. Maybe a cool vintage fabric would look good.
