This key rack is also a dry erase message center.

A key rack is something we have been needing for a long time. We have a coat rack near our front door that stores a lot of things, but keys get piled up on top and fall off. After considering a lot of different designs, I thought it would be fun if the rack was also a message center.

The "dry-erase" board is just a piece of plexiglass. I made it removable to help with cleaning and so it can be easily replaced if it gets scratched or damaged. But mostly because it made it lot easier to apply a spray lacquer finish to the wood!

I made this using free pallet wood and materials I already had in my shop.
