Weekend DIY: Yardstick Coat Rack

Retro Staff |  Comments
Yardstick Rack

Use old, promotional yard sticks to create a unique coat rack.

Remember when businesses used to hand out promotional products you could actually use? Among the useful items were rulers and yardsticks. Chances are there are a few buried in a closet or in the attic. But, if you don’t want to go digging, one can usually find these pretty cheap at a local thrift store or flea market.

Skaie Knox came up with a way to showcase these vintage finds in a functional way. Using yardsticks, hooks and glue, her site shows you how to create this unique fixture.
