On one of my auction days, I bid on something. As is often common at auctions, it came in a box with other stuff. As I looked through my box, I noticed some cool claw foot thingies. They used to be the feet to what was called a library table. There were several different styles.
I didn't plan to use them as they were originally used. I cleaned them up quite a bit.
This is what I came up with. I used a reclaimed piece of our old barn and planed it down. I sanded it smooth and whitewashed it. Then, I gave it a watered-down, dry-brushed coat of paint.
I used dowels attached to the board and then glued the table legs over the dowels.
And here it is. A cool coat rack.
