So, I stumbled upon this website while I was looking for ideas for making a coat rack… and I found some AWESOME do it yourself home improvement ideas and simple home projects!!

My favorites:

Coat Hanger Shelf (Which will be our next project!!! I just love the way this looks!)

Corner Bookcase (For maximizing storage in small spaces!)

Kitchen Table Booth (Super cozy for family dinners!)
