About two weeks ago, my favorite builder Ana White posted this coat hook and communication board combo on her Pinterest board for a future project. I loved it so much, I had to recreate one for my laundry room for the 31 days of simple wood projects series. Mine is only 4 sections instead of 7 due to lack of room.
2 - 28"
2 - 50"
3 - 28"
1 - 50"
48" x24" sheet of lauan, cut down to 16"
If you don't have a circular saw, you may want to have them cut this at the lumber store.
Attach 2 50" 1x4 boards at the top and bottom of 2 28" 1x4 boards (recess the boards 1" at the ends to create the more rustic feel) to create the outer square (wait to attach the 50" 1x2 board until after you attach the chalkboard lauan piece (16" wide x 48" long).
I would suggest painting the lauan sheet with the chalkboard paint BEFORE attaching to the frame so you don't need to use painter tape and worry about painting on the frame. I stained my frame, but the inspiration piece has a distressed white. Your preference.
Attach the back lauan piece and the bottom frame 1x2 for the chalkboard. Then secure 3 (equally spaced) 1x2 28" boards to create the sections.
Add the coat hangers and hang on the wall.
