    Oh, yeah, very nice!!! You did this in one day? Or even one weekend? Very impressive. It surely would take us a full weekend just to buy the wood and other parts! Be extra nice to your dad!

    My DH can do this, he just has a billion other projects going at the same time so I'm still hanging all my stuff on a TSC portable saddle rack. That's a really nice set up.

    Absolutely amazing.

    Love the idea of the saddle racks being portable and the space below also in use.
    Good ideas to copy.

    Guess you gave him plenty of praise, did you?

    It's awesome! Do you keep your horses at home? Cause it would seem to be a royal pain to tote stuff back and forth. Or is this overflow???

    *cough* um...it's overflow... *cough*

    The problem is that I don't have a barn to ride at right now and my horse is in another state, so all the stuff that should be at the barn is in my garage. Usually there's a set of everything at the barn, so there is definitely a little extra in there at this point!

    Thanks for all the kind words! I'm going to share this thread with my dad and he'll be very impressed with everyone's compliments.

    My dad is super talented and always happy to take on a good project to help out his kids!

    This is fantastic!
    I am working on something similar though mine is a former Tv armoire that had no back that I am backing/attaching to the garage wall, and adding the saddle racks and whatnot to the wall.
    Very similar idea thought with someone's cast off as the main materials.

    My son is going to hate you. He now has a spring project on his list.

    I love all the shelves. I end up stacking plastic drawers and storage baskets and pondering the wasted empty space above my saddle.

    That is so cool! My heaping piles of (disorganized) horse stuff are very jealous.
