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??

I have to admit that I am not a fan of the dresser/matching giant mirror in a bedroom. I do like mirrors, but I don't like to look at myself everytime I go into my dresser. But, I also like having my dresser tops pretty, so I was kind of at a loss as to what to do. Enter....... PINTEREST!! I saw this post and decided it was exactly what I needed http://pinterest.com/pin/1266706114778754/ Pin It
