Just four poles and a piece of rope and you have a stylish coat stand!

Jackets, umbrellas, scarves and hats… banish hallway clutter by hanging your winter goodies on an easy-to-make coat stand. It’s so simple yet so striking.
Materials you will need:

  • Drill with 6mm drill bit
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush
  • Masking tape
  • Four dowels 25mm diameter
  • 10 metres of 5mm sash cord
  • Modo Low Sheen – Cool Lagoon

Step 1

Mask off feet at one end of each dowel. For a quirky twist make them different lengths.

Step 2

Paint the feet with two coats of Modo Cool Lagoon, letting the paint dry between coats.

Step 3

Measure and mark 400mm at the painted foot end of each dowel.

Step 4

Drill a hole through each dowel on the marks you have made in step three.

Step 5

Bundle the four dowels together at the top about 400mm from the unpainted ends and wrap the sash cord around your bundle about eight to 10 times.

Step 6

Make sure you secure the bundle with a tight knot.

Step 7

Spread the legs to make your coat rack stand upright.

Step 8

Cut a length of rope 170mm and thread it through the holes you’ve made in the legs, then tie with a knot. This will stop the legs from splaying too widely.

Top Tip: To stop the ends of the rope from fraying wrap a little masking tape around the ends.
