While I was reading the book JUNK BEAUTIFUL...I saw the hand drill coat rack and loved it. I thought...I can do that. So, the project began. Purchased the hand drills and dug up the kitchen cabinet board from my pile of junk. We decided to use copper colored brackets and I think it is a nice look. Thank you, Sue for the project instructions in the book. Had a lot of fun creating it.
