I also didn't want to spend
I also had this metal coat hanger from hobby lobby that was in my college apartment.
This was the simplest DIY I have done.
The first step was to wipe everything down...the had been in our shed for a bit.
Then I decided to take off this wood panel at the top of the shutter.
I have no idea what is was for or why I didn't take it off sooner.
I just used a flathead screwdriver to pry it off.
I used a decorative upholstery nail to put the coat rack onto the middle of the shutter.
The finished project.
I like it and it will do the job!
