Hook, Line, and Sinker

Oh how I wish we had a dedicated mud room. Alas, when our house was built way back in 1902, these things weren't necessary. Maybe husbands put their coats away in the closet every time back then? Who knows. People do always say life was so much simpler in the good old days. While I don't have a mud room, I do have a wall.

A wall with hooks.

Simple, easy, effective.

I got my inspiration from here. The rest was just left over 1x5, hooks and paint. Super easy and only as expensive as your hooks (mine are from Home Depot). 

Now if I can just convince someone to hang up their coats... 

Anyone else lacking in a mudroom? How do you corral your coats? We don't even have a coat closet (the shame!)

  1. We live in San Diego where people believe mud rooms only exist in fantasy along with unicorns and the Loch Ness Monster. They also believe it never rains here. Our coats end up hanging on backs of chairs wherever the owner left them. Your hook wall looks like a good idea.
