All our jackets and bags need a new home. Expecting the boys to hang up their coats with a hanger in a closet is a little unrealistic here at our house (I feel like I have said that in a post before).
Using only two pieces of wood and all the hooks I could find, none of them really even match.
Made a wall rack that can now hold lots of jackets.
Even heavy school backpacks can safely hang here. The wood slats are each screwed into wall studs in three different places. Wall studs are usually between 12 and 16 inches apart. Near an outlet is a good starting point to finding one.
As much as I don’t love for our guests to walk straight into a wall of coats, it’s much better than walking onto a floor of coats. (we don’t have a mudroom)
I made the ‘M’ with wood and my new brad-nailer that I got for Christmas. (I always ask for a new tool or gadget for Christmas, my husband would much rather do his holiday shopping at a hardware store than a fancy department store any day).
My nail gun is made by Rigid and so is my table saw. Both have been very reliable.
The ‘H’ was white and I painted it metallic but I put a ‘B’ and ‘L’ some place for this project but after the holiday clean up, they seem to be gone. =/
Seven hooks should help keep this foyer floor stay a bit more clear of jackets, coats, bags, leashes, umbrellas and what ever else can be hung.
