How To Build A Coat Rack. Part 4

Now the coat rack is built and it is time to put the finish on. This is my son Robert, a few years ago. He is in my work shop, and he actually did build this coat rack while I took the pictures. 

This coat rack is coated with Pecan stain. Use gloves, and work evenly. If you stop for a few minutes, it will leave a mark. Don't forget to stain the caps. When it is completely dry, apply three coats of polyurethane, sanding in between each coat. I use a sponge sander. It is gentle and makes the wood  nice and smooth

This is the finished coat rack. I antiqued the top two with gold antiquing  The bottom one is finished in Special Walnut. the middle one is painted with cream paint, then is antiqued with antique gold craft paint. These racks are available on etsy, unfinished or finished.
