I have a foyer the size of a postage stamp. It is very small, with no closet and no space to move. I need somewhere to hang coats, but don't want anything on the floor and I am very picky about what I hang on the wall, as I spent way too much money to paint it. What to do? I decided to build my own hanging coat rack. First, I picked up some wood from Home Depot and got them to cut it 2 1/2 feet in length.

Then I found some really cute hooks at the dollar store.

 I also found these in my closet. God knows how long they have been sitting there.


Out came the gorilla glue and tape


 I let everything dry overnight, but thought it was a little boring. I decided to add some wooden letters


 Now, once you come in my newly painted (yes, I splurged and hired someone to do it) yellow door,

 Gosh, don't you just love that door? I could stare at it all day. My neighbour directly across from me absolutely LOVES it! Anyways, back to coats. Once you come through the magical door, VOILA!!! You have a place to hang your coats!!

 It is big, but because it is on the wall, it doesn't make the foyer smaller


 Total cost? Under $10. I love it. I was going to stain it, but I kind of like the natural wood. What do you think?? Pin It


  1. Great solution! I love the hooks, I never find cute stuff at the dollar store!

  2. Love the yellow door! I may not comment often but I visit regularly. Have a safe & fun 4th!
