We wanted a rare and personalised hat rack but in the furniture stores those were much to expensive.
Therefore we selected four birch wood EKBY VALTER at the local IKEA store. Important to pay attention on the selection since IKEA use wood material with poor selection and in the store you will find a range of varying wood quality among the available EKBY VALTER wall brackets.
In my kitchen, my wife and I used my wood carving knives and softened the edges of the wall brackets and carved decorative patterns. This way the brackets were personalized and the primitive original design was masked.
