Welcome to my 1st instructable! I am humbled that you were compelled enough to click on my link to learn this simply made, yet beautiful rack (yes I am bias). It all started about a year ago when my wife needed a shoe rack, but all the ones that looked solid built cost an arm and a leg, so, I figured I would just build one. Midway through the project we both realized it looked like a total piece of trailer trash even with us being rednecks! So she gave up, which in turn, made me want to prove her wrong, because that’s marriage, and this could be awesome! So with a little outside the box thinking, black screws opposed to gold, and the beautiful addition of scrap steel as the shelving, voila, my rustic steel combo was born. That lead to multiple experiments and variations, including this one, as it is the first I have built! So it has been fun, but I assure you I am NOT a YouTube worthy wood craftsman, nor do I claim what I do is correct, but it works, so if you will humor me and take a shot, I bet you can make it better than I can. Also I am doing all of this from my iPad so bear with my splleing and punctuaytiom.
Since the challenge was organization, I wanted to modify my standard coat rack to be more…multipurpose. So with the addition of the floating shelf and key attachments, I was satisfied with the turn out, without wayyyyyy over doing it (built in wireless charger, routed circle for candle, a teliporter built in, etc).
