Unique Coat Rack : Attach sawed-off wooden hangers to a board by screwing them in through the back. Add heavy-duty picture hangers to the back of the board for mounting on the wall. Throw hats on top and hang purses and coats on the hangers' hooks.
Upcycle pruned branches into coat hooks. No directions; was a 'for sale' item . but could use pallets for the frame. Make sure branch sections are well dried. Pre-drill branch and frame. Use wood glue and screws (or pegs) to connect.
I really like this idea for an office or a library. Convert an old globe into a pendant light! Seems easy enough. Buy a lamp kit at your local hardware store, take apart a globe and drill a larger hole for the light. Put remainder of light together.
