created at: 02/11/2013

Anyway, back to bowls...). There's always a use for them, whether they're actually holding anything or just looking pretty.

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
