  • How to make a hook or rack. Simple Coatrack - Step 1
    Step 1

    I sanded the front, back, and edges of the 1x4 board by hand with a sanding block, just to make sure the wood was free of any rough spots. I primed it with Kilz, then used two coats of Rust -Oleum Ultra Cover in Gloss White, letting it dry in between the coats. Once the board was dry, I measured and spaced out where I wanted to place the hooks I purchased. Then, I marked the screw holes using a pencil and pre-drilled the screw holes for the hooks.

    After attaching the hooks using the hardware that came with them, I secured it on the wall, by drilling into the studs.
