Pallet shelf/coathook....

Pin It
I have had a pallet sitting in my garage waiting for this project. My plan this month is to finish projects I have planned or purchased supplies for.
I loved the natural wood color but I needed some color against my cream walls so I opted for blue for Keegan's room.
 I added hooks so he would have somewhere to hang his coat and backpack.
 You know "A place for everything and everything in it's place"

 I love how it turned out but.....
we ran into a problem. I tested the door and it was ok. I just didn't plan for the hooks. See that last hook, yeah, the one right against the 'mostly' open door.  UGH!! I am afraid someone is gonna run into the door and POP!! the hook is gonna go right through. So down it comes. I will have to make something different for him. Perhaps like Tyler's.
I also made this for my bathroom.
 Yeah, dear hubby has to read while on the throne. Why is it that guys have to read while in the bathroom? I think it is just so they can hide. Of course it would never work for mom. The boys find me no matter where I am! Ladies, you know what I'm talkin' about don't you!
Blue for boys, red for mom.
I am pleased with it but I need your help. I want to put some vinyl on the front of it but not sure what. Any suggestions?
We also made one for my friend. 3 shelves from 1 pallet. Not too bad.

  1. Hey! before you take that hook off....they make a door stopper that you put on the hinges that stops the door from opening all the way. We had a couple like that in the old house. works great! you just pull the pin out of the hinge, and then thread the pin through the door stopper thing. It has a screw adjuster to set it just right.
    Super cute shelves!
