The kids wanted to make Garrett something for Father's Day, but Garrett doesn't need a tie rack. Garrett has a hat and hoodie to match each pair of Vans he has. He has a lot of hats and lay all over the house. The girls found some ideas on Pintrest, but none of them were big enough. So the decided to take one of the rustic hat rack ideas and just make it twice the size. The was an easy project and it only cost $25.
6 - Stockade Fence Pickets (6ft tall)
1 - 1/4" Plywood (2'x4')
2 - 1"x2" (8')
12 - 1/2" x 2" Lag Screws
3 - Stain colors
Step 1: Cut the Fence Pickets into 1' and 2' sections
Step 2: Stain the Fence Pickets different colors. We used 3 stains and divided the boards up. Also, stain the plywood, so the raw wood doesn't show through.
Step 3: Arrange the stained fence pickets, in a random patter, on the plywood. Glue and nail the pickets to the plywood using 1/2 nails.
Step 4: Measure and drill 1/2" pilot holes for the bolts. We staggered and spaced our holes out 9" apart.
Step 5: Screw in the 1/2" lag screws about a 1/2" deep.
Step 6: Cut the 1x2s to fit around the boards as a frame. Stain the boards. Glue and nail the frame around the edge with 1.25" nails.
