our coat hooks

today, i thought i’d share the other part of our entryway with you.

it’s on the other side of the front door.

see?

last week i shared our family command center

which, i’ve already re-arranged since you last saw it.

i simply can’t help myself.

there might actually be something wrong with me.

we’re not sure.

we’re looking into it. ; )

i put the pockets on the other side

and added a picture frame and an embroidery hoop to pretty it up.

okay, back to the other side of our entryway…

i got the idea here in this martha stewart organizing book.

oh, martha…

is there anything you can’t do?

i knew i needed something for all of our coats, backpacks and keys.

i saw this and fell in love with it.

so, i put my husband, josh to work.

he can build things.

he’s handy like that.

he went to home depot and grabbed 2 pieces of furniture grade 1×4 pine

and drilled holes for the coat pegs.

then, i painted them white.

it has an upper and a lower set of pegs.

i love that i can put my purse way up high so the kids can’t get to it.

and, i love all the pegs down low.

i love that the kiddos can reach all of their things.

they can take down and hang up everything without any help.

the pegs are large and sturdy.

perfect for heavy winter coats.

it even has a spot for keys, dexter’s leash and sunglasses.

it’s super functional for our family.

it has worked out really well for us over the years.

i truly adore it.

especially, when we have lots of friends and family over for a visit.

okay, now here’s what it actually looks like…

i’m just keepin’ it real.
