Vanessa Brunner added this to Book to Know: 'Living in a Nutshell'
DIY wall clamp coat hooks: Industrial C-clamps are a quick way to upgrade a simple wall shelf into a coat and purse rack. Choose some in fun colors (or spray paint them) for additional style. This is a great solution for renters, because it doesn't require any potentially damaging nails or glue.Where do you go for inspiration?Luckily, walking down the streets of New York City gives you inspiration around every corner. I walk everywhere and pop into stores of every ilk. I like looking at displays more than the merchandise itself, and hardware stores always challenge my imagination. I am always thinking of how I can repurpose an object or nail or hook in a stylish way. There are many international magazine stores in the city, and the staff doesn't mind if you sit down with a huge stack. I love what they're doing in Australia and the U.K. I love their fearless use of color and their mixture of high and low, old and new.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Get Hooked on Unusual Wall Hangers
Add even more function to a shelf in your hallway with C-clamps. Suddenly, it becomes a spot for stylish accessories and storage for your jacket or hat.
Who knew C-clamps could be so chic? Mounted on a taxicab-yellow slab of wood, they morph into the most awesome coat rack ever.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Neon Brights
This is not only a bright, brave color combo, it's also a nifty idea — clamp coat hangers; why didn't I think of that?
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to 12 Wonderfully Creative Coatracks
Eclectic, industrial, playful — this coatrack has it all. Everyday C-clamps grip a brightly painted shelf to form hooks; the mix of accessories makes it a sensation. I want to know the story behind the squirrel!
