As a child, I spent a lot of time at my grandparents. I have many fond memories - family dinners, playing in the creek, playing in the "rock house", chickens, cows, riding 4-wheelers. We still enjoy the land, but my grandparents and their house are gone. This coat rack is made from a piece of wood taken from their house when it was being torn down. My husband added the hooks to the front and a hanger to the back.
I love the rustic look - no sanding, no staining, no cutting. A piece of Grandma's house.
