This DIY reclaimed wood coat rack is a quick and easy way to help keep an entry way neat and tidy as the fall hats, coats and bags pile up. Plus, it looks pretty darn cute if I say so myself!

When I created this DIY project for Nordstrom I wanted to find just the right piece of wood. I went digging through the downtown LA lumber yards and was lucky enough to find an old painted door frame with a beautiful patina but if you try this project yourself, any aged cool piece of wood will do. I also splurged on brass hooks to give the project just the right juxtaposition of old and new but again, a variety of hooks would be just as rad. Have fun with it and get creative! Here’s how to do it:

You will need:
A piece of reclaimed wood
Screw driver/drill and screws
Hanging hooks

4 tbsp witch hazel
Cotton pads

Whenever I need a deep full body skin revamp I reach for Frank Coffee Scrub in the shower. It makes the biggest mess but it’s worth it! Here’s why: it targets cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema, acne and scarring with roasted and ground robusta coffee beans. It helps smooth lumps and bumps with brown sugar & sea salt, moisturise and tones your skin with cold pressed sweet almond oil, and vitamins & minerals.

It’s pretty incredible stuff so when I came across this DIY coffee scrub I was inclined to give it a shot. The results were pretty darn good and I liked the coconut and cinnamon combo.  Learn how to do it yourself here.
