Multi-purpose display & catch all
I looked around the basement & garage to see what I could find. I love trying to come up with new ways to look at an item. So I found wood, molding, a thrift store chair, paint & a coat peg hanger, and decide to whip up this display with no $ spent!!
With all the materials listed above I got to work. First I removed the seat from the chair. Then I painted the wood & the chair white. Next I attached the 2x4 wood pieces to the back of the chair with screws. Then on the front half of the chair I attached the molding with screws as well. That way visually it just looked nicer . At the top I used large screws to attach the expandable coat pegs to molding & 2x4s.
It ended up being the perfect height for the hanging the totes & holding the baskets of cuddles. To my surprise, I hadn’t thought about what a great catch all it could make by the entryway or mud room! I just love multi purpose items!
It takes up so little space. Its so easy to store in the basement when not needed ,but also easy to bring up when you have a party for extra coats etc. If you use it every day why not throw a basket under it for shoes , hats or whatever you might need to store on a daily basis .
Though this was a no cost project for me, it could easily be a cheap $10-$15 project if you hunt for supplies at thrift stores or even in your own home!
