A new coat rack

About 2 weeks ago I finished putting together a coat rack. Hooray!
About a month ago I went with my friend, Amber, to a PACA salvage yard and found a solid pine board with molding for only $2. I think it once was a mantle or part of a door frame, or something. It has been painted an orangish-yellow color but because it's old the paint has chipped and aged. I like it.
I went to Hobby Lobby and got 5 hooks (3 are 2 pronged and 2 are 3 pronged), Lowe's and got nails and hanging hardware and went to work with the power drill/driver. I am so happy it turned out. It was my first time using a power tool and luckily no one got hurt. Now our jackets and hats are right at our finger tips as we run out the door.

Head-on shot.

Love it! I'm impressed with your power tool usage. I have been wanting to use power tools so badly lately, but I'm still too scared I will wreck a) my project, b) myself, or c) the power tools. Haha. Maybe one day...
