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

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!

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

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...
