Let’s be honest: coat racks, while practical and necessary, are often quite ordinary and overlooked in the process of giving a room character. Thankfully, all of our DIY projects today have proven that that doesn’t have to be the case, especially our next few projects that add quite a bit of cheer and fun to a space. No buts about it (ha-ha-ha), our next coat rack would make just about anyone grin! created this cute and clever coat rack for kids by stenciling animal… ahem… hind quarters onto a piece of wood and hand painting hooks to look like their tails.
One thing I’ve been looking at are coat racks for kids to help get things off the floor (which is where the backpack/jacket/lunch box seems to be dropped everyday). Kids coat racks are a great thing for entryway items, but once I started to look at them, I realized they would be great in multiple places. A corner in their room would work for those sweatshirts that never find their way back into the drawer. Or, what about a dress-up coat rack? Bag storage? (am I the only mom with a child that is obsessed with bags of all sizes and shapes?) Really, anything you want off the floor.
