A Quick Hat Rack for an Army Room!

After making over the Professor's room for his birthday, I had one piece of board leftover from the shelves that I didn't want to go to waste.  The professor has a TON of hats in his collection and they didn't have a home, so I decided that the best use for the last board was to make him a hat rack!  Even if you include the cost of the board ($5ish) all I needed was 2 packages of hooks ($3 each) the same container of free sample paint, a stencil for the lettering ($2) and a black sharpie marker.  I cut the board down a tiny bit, freehanded with the stencil, attached the brackets, and added two hanging brackets on the back (that I saved from some artwork we bought so they too were free) and we had a hat rack that was LITERALLY the hit of the room.
 I hung it below the shelving above his bed and he's good to go!
One hat rack for about $10.  A great way to use up leftovers and make a 9 year old VERY happy!
