Nature Inspired DIY Birch Forest Coat Rack

Fall is in the air, and this simple coat rack is inspired by the lovely birch trees, made from found objects: branches and reclaimed fence wood. First step, clean and sand the fence wood.

Paint quickly and leave some texture with your brush marks. Then collect some dried branches about 0.5″ to 0.75″ in diameter, cut each piece at the base with a hand saw at a slight angle, so when you place them on the face of the wood, they go diagonally upward.
