Flip-Down Coat Rack

Sporting a mid-century vibe, this coat rack is one part wall art, one part handy place to park your jacket, or hat.

There’s a good chance that you could use up some of that leftover lumber in the bin to build this project. The rack is basically 29 blocks that are tied together with dowels. Five hooks flip down to bring this playful mid-century-style coat rack to life. Even though the rack looks a little like a keyboard gone wild, when it comes to putting all this together, don’t be too concerned. There’s a method to the madness. The blocks all start out as identically sized blanks. Then you trim them to width and length to make six sets of varying-sized blocks. Some of those you flip to make an interesting overall arrangement.

  • 6 printable (digital) pages of step-by-step instructions
