Awesome DIY Inspiration: Branch coat rack

Wow! This DIY branch coat rack is an incredible example of repurposing/recycling a natural object for a stunning effect in the home that’s also a really useful piece of furniture design!

The designers have taken a natural branch of the right height and strength to create a floor-to-ceiling coat hanger and bag holder for the home entrance. They have painted the branches white to match the walls, which emphasizes the shape and shadow effects. I would love to have this branch coat rack at my front door!

Is this your image? Let me know and I’ll credit you!

By the way – have you seen the branch coat rack below? It’s made from recycled mangosteen wood and is a great idea for those looking for the above effect but with something a little less permanent (helloooo, renters like me!). You can buy it here and here.
