My friend Doug makes the coolest coat racks. He crafts them out of salvaged barn wood and vintage knobs then gives them fun names like "The Weathered Wedge" and "Black Eyed Susan". This one — "Hole Me" — was a baby gift from him and his wife and I'm in love with it. I love the character of the old wood (the holes!), love the different knobs and hooks, love that it's made from repurposed materials,Â love the shelf that's perfect for displaying the sanderling bird sculpture from my Audubon days. And when the sling is not cradling my babe close to me, it's hanging on Hole Me.
If you need an awesome coat rack like this for yourself (you do, don't you?), check out Doug's etsy site, RusticsReborn.
