Roundup: 21 Creative DIY Wall Hook and Coat Rack Projects!

By: Capreek Feb 07, 2013

created at: 02/07/2013

I'll admit that the coat rack/wall hook situation in our entryway (which is really just our living room) needs a little help. When we have guests over, they inevitably ask, "So... uh, where do you want me to put my coat?" -- which means "Dude. Get a coat rack already." We end up tossing jackets over the back of a random piece of furniture and call it day, but I'd love to surprise our friends with an actual, honest-to-goodness coat rack or wall hook the next time they come over. One of these modern DIY options ought to do the trick!       Continue Reading

How to: Make a DIY Upcycled Coat and Purse Hanging Station

By: Craftmel Jan 10, 2012

created at: 01/10/2012

With our warm winters, we don't have a need for a coat rack.  In fact, the coat closet in our condo is home to our camping gear because the very idea of having designated square footage for coats is silly when it is 72 degrees outside (which did make for an awkward situation when we had people over for dinner and they handed me their light jackets... I just stood there like an idiot holding them instead).  Even so, this fun idea doesn't take up storage space, and is pretty fun to look at too.   Continue Reading
