DIY – Coat Hooks

I’ve been itching to do this project for years now.  We have a pretty small ranch and when you walk in, there is no place to put your coat.  We all end up throwing them on chairs, railings, beds, floors…you name it.  It really drove me crazy.  I was in Lowes the other day and picked up hooks.  I’ve looked on Pinterest and stuff to find really cool ones but let’s face it, they are going to be hidden.  On top of that, I only have a few inches behind the door so having beautiful long hooks is out of the question anyways.

Little Cubby helped me. He pretended to level and drill and stand on the step stool. Pretty cute!

I’m absolutely thrilled with the result. Practical and not bad looking either. I would love to get rid of that horrible door but it is not going to happen now. One day though.

Are there projects you’ve been wanting to do around the house? What are they? What kind of push do you need?
