To Make a Coat Rack

Photo by  Kristen Williams

     Hi guys! Today, we have a very simple and inexpensive solution to a very common problem. Previously, when guests had come over to the house, there was no where for them to hang up their jackets and purses, especially out of Baileys reach. I know it sounds like a #firstworldproblem, but it shouldn't have been an issue in the first place! I don't know why it took me so long to see that we needed a coat rack or hooks. Brett had mentioned he wanted a coat rack a while back, and it just completely left my mind. It's probably because I was so focused on getting Bailey's room decorated and the office organized that I neglected our entry way. Well, it is neglected no more. Now, all we need to finish it is some wall art, an ottoman, and a runner rug. Short lists are always good! Get the how-to below!


- 4 tall wooden rods or stakes, found at most hardware stores

- rope, twine, whatever you'd like to secure the coat rack!


Step one - Position your rods, two on top of the other two. Make sure the edges are all lined up.

Step two - Wrap your rope around the outside about eight times and knot it. Then, stand up your coat rack, and weave more rope into and around each rod to keep it stable. Finally, wrap more rope around the outside to cover your woven in rope. The rack should stand like a tepee, and disclaimer: it only holds a few coats, but for me, I love the aesthetic so much that I don't care! Happy crafting!
