You can make a nice coat rack from a lot of things. You also can apply chalkboard paint to a lot of surfaces to make them more practical. Why not to combine these two facts and not to make a chalkboard coat rack?
Such coat rack could be done from a wooden plaque, a can of spray chalkboard paint, some primer, and several brass hooks. You need to apply primer to the plaque and after that spray 3 coats of chalkboard paint and wait for 24 hours. Next, screw in some brass hooks and you’re done! Now you can write haiku notes to other family members if you hangs it near your front door to hold coats, dog leashes and purses.
