Let’s get to work!
Now that you have more free time, with summer and holidays, it’s the perfect time to do this simple and very special DIY job. To get started, you’ll need to gather the necessary materials, starting with the branch of the tree. Take advantage of a walk in nature and get a fallen branch of the right dimensions, more or less than 1.5 m. If you can’t find one that size, you can always cut it to the size you need with the help of a saw.
In addition to the tree branch, you will need large black open females, steel cable, cable end pieces and a fastening system for hanging the coat rack from the ceiling (special plugs).
As for the tools, you will need a meter, a punch, a drill, some clamps, a drill bit for wood of 3 mm and another one of 8 mm, and an Allen wrench.
When you have gathered all the things you will need, find a suitable table and place the branch on top of it. Fix it with the help of sergeants or tweezers. so it doesn’t move while you’re working. Start by measuring where you’re going to put the sockets as hooks. You can use the punch to mark points about 6 or 8 cm apart, depending on the size of the branch.
Drill, it’s been said!
Once you know clearly where to put the hooks, place the 3 mm fine drill bit into the drill and prepare to make the holes. You can use the Bosch Easy Drill screwdriver, being careful not to overdo it, as the branch will probably not be very hard.
Then you’ll have to make two thicker holes, one at each end of the branch, and then hang the boho-style coat rack from the ceiling. Measure first so that the two holes are at the same distance from the ends.
Attaching the hooks
Now you’ll have to go placing the hooks in the holes and tighten them firmly. Work little by little, making sure that all the females are in the same direction and at the same height.
Hanging up the coat rack
It’s time for hang your boho-style coat rack from the ceiling in the chosen place.
Pass the steel cable through the holes you made earlier with the 8 mm drill bit to hang the coat rack. Finish with the metal piece and adjust it with the Allen key. Now all you have to do is measure the cables and hang the coat rack from the ceiling with the appropriate plugs.
As you’ve seen, if you’ve embarked on the DIY adventure of getting your boho-style coat rack, it’s a job that couldn’t be simpler or cheaper, since you don’t need special materials or a lot of money to buy them. Enjoy it!
