I LOVE coat hooks! (Have you noticed that I LOVE lots of things? I may tend to overuse that word, but there are so many fabulous things that I do love! So until I can come up with a better word, you may continue to hear about things I “LOVE” ). There can never be too many coat hooks in a home – whether it is to hold coats, towels, doggie leashes, or any number of other things. In my home I have coat hooks in the foyer:
the small hallway:
our bedroom (for us when we take the Girls out):
and our bedroom for the Girls (they get cold, too!)
I make coat hook racks using old interior shutters or cabinet doors (found at Habitat ReStore). I just paint them as I would a piece of furniture and then add the hooks.
I get all my hooks from Hobby Lobby – and while I have used a variety of different hooks, the one at the bottom of the above picture is by far my favorite. It has two hooks and the top one sticks out far enough over the bottom one that they are both useful, and the top one is mostly flat so items will stay at the hook’s end. Many hooks tend to point upwards, and the items just slide down them. You will notice that this is the hook I used on all of my racks (except for the Girls’ – because who could pass up monogram hooks?)
