Salvaged Trim Coat Rack

Sarah from Upscale Downhome has an eye for uncovering treasures at the dump. On one trip, she returned home with six trim pieces from an old house full of square nails. This was a great find since salvaged architectural pieces are a pretty hot commodity these days.


In order to convert one of the trim pieces to a coat rack for her back hall, Sarah sanded, stained, and waxed it. She then added antique hooks and some other fun embellishments including old numbers from an adding machine and metal buttons to hide screw holes. Sarah’s fabulous transformations will surely have even the most dignified scrounging through the dump yard!
